Dhingra commission submits report to Haryana Govt. in Vadra-DLF land deal case

Chandigarh [Haryana], Aug.31 : The Justice S.N. Dhingra-led commission, which is probing the grant of licences for change in land use (CLU) in four villages of Gurgaon, including the licence granted to a company (Sky Light Hospitality Private Limited) owned by Robert Vadra, the son-in-law of Congress party president Sonia Gandhi, today submitted its report to the Haryana Government.

The single-member commission got three extensions since it was set up in May 2015. The commission had the mandate to probe the circumstances of the grant or rejection of the licences for the development of colonies, group housing societies and commercial complexes in those sectors of Gurgaon for which lands in the areas of Shikohpur, Sikanderpur, Badah and Kherki Dhaula were used.

It has also probed whether the transfer of licence by the original licencee within a short period of time was in violation of the law and caused a loss of revenue to the state government.

Vadra has been accused of transferring his licence to DLF in violation of the law and causing a huge loss to revenue.

Though the commission was initially granted time of six months and was supposed to submit its report by December 8, 2015, its tenure was extended for another six months till June 7 this year on the same terms and conditions.

It was extended yet again on June 30 after Justice Dhingra sought a three-week extension as he had come across some more documents which needed to be examined.
