New Delhi, Jul 23 (UNI) The Delhi High court allowed the Registrar Co-operative Society (RCS) to go ahead with the allotment to the innocent house owners after CBI gave clean chit to 58 co-operative Group Housing Societies (CGHS) involved in a housing scam.

After the housing scam was unearthed in 2005, more than 100 societies (mostly in Dwarka) came under CBI scanner for forging documents to sell the land at exhorbant prices to non-members.

The then RCS along with others were charged with manipulation of documents and selling flats to non-members at higher prices.

The High Court directed the CBI to clear all those societies, which are not involved in the scam and to disburse the flats to their respective owners.

The members had urged the court that they were being victimised for no fault of theirs as they had taken loan and paid huge amount of money for the flats.

They were being doubly victimised as they have to pay the interest on the flats as well as the rent of the houses they were staying.

The RCS told the bench headed by Justice Manmohan Sarin on Monday that his office planned to put advertisements inviting bonafide members of the 58 societies.

After verifying the identity of the original members, they will be advised to contact their respective societies and the allotment process will be over within three months, the RCS assured the court.
