Chandigarh, Nov 24 (UNI) The Indian National Lok Dal (INLD) has termed the decision of Hooda Government to force the members of Cooperative Group Housing Societies to get their flats or apartments registered as unfortunate.
INLD has also asked for withdrawal of this autocratic step.
INLD president and former Chief Minister Om Parkash Chautala said in a statement here that the decision to increase the income of the government through the stamp duty would adversely affect the members of the housing societies. He said that the attitude of the government was not that of a democratic and people representative government.
Mr Chautala pointed that most of the members of Cooperative Group Housing Societies were small employees, lower and middle strata people, who had built their small houses by taking loans from the banks. The Cooperative Group Housing Societies purchased land at high prices from HUDA and the registry of the land was duly done by the societies.
