HC directs state govt to repay housing money
[ Tongam Rina ]
ITANAGAR, Jul 1: Itanagar bench of Gauhati High Court has directed the Government
of Arunachal Pradesh to repay the instalment/advance amounts paid by 74 individuals
who had applied for government promoted affordable housing scheme in 2010.
Disposing two separate writ petitions on the same issue on June 29, Justice Ajit
Borthakur has directed the Department of Urban Development and State Urban Development
Agency (SUDA) to repay the amount along with 14% interest per annum within four months.
In 2010, the Government of Arunachal Pradesh had introduced a proposal to build hundreds
of house of affordable homes but it never materialized, though the prospective buyers
paid the basic prices quoted by the department as well as instalments for months.
One of the petitioners paid more than Rs 5 lakhs for a flat, according to the affidavit
submitted to the court. But the state government declined further payment from the
petitioners without giving any reasons in early 2015, Kemo Lollen, the counsel appearing
for 75 petitioners told the court.
Some people, whom this daily spoke to, said that they stopped paying the instalments
as the progress in construction was stalled half way.
As per the agreement signed in September 2010 between the State Government and the
M/s Ishvakoo (India) Pvt Limited, the builder, the construction of 3000 flats was
to be completed within three years. Seven years later, none of those who applied
for the affordable housing were given the promised flats.
The petitioners had submitted a joint representation in September 2016 requesting
allotment of the flats or repayment of advanced money paid. The department did not
act on the representation leading to filing of the writ petitions.
The Court ruling, which is with this daily, states that "in response to the contentions
of the petitioners in both petitions, the State Respondents by way of filing an affidavit-in-opposition
have basically made an averment to the extent that collection of further instalment
payments were discontinued because the builders had stopped construction of the buildings,
abruptly, in the month of May, 2014; and fled away along with construction workers
from the site without any reason".
According to the response filed by the state government, the builders have decided
to close the project and have authorized the SUDA under the Director of Housing,
Government of Arunachal Pradesh, to auction the fixed assets to repay the petitioners
and other buyers.
In July 2015, the Arunachal Pradesh Government had informed the Legislative Assembly
that New Delhi based Ishvakoo India Pvt Ltd, the company executing construction of
3000 flats at Jollang, had assured the government to complete 60 units of flats by
But it appears that those who applied for flats will be deprived after years of waiting.
As of now, the housing complex has been abandoned and there are reports of encroachment
within the complex. Even the few flats that have been completed are not fit for accommodation
because of extremely low standard of construction, said one of the petitioners, who
did not wish to be named.
She said that her dream of having an affordable home is not going to be fulfilled
and that she wants her money back from the government.

natural calamities, like landslide and premature damage of drainage system for causing

Hello July !
Flights Of Fantasy
[ M Panging ]
The month of July is named after the Roman Ruler, Julius Caesar. On an average July
is the hottest month in most of the Northern hemisphere.
The previous month has been marked by violent protests by farmers in many parts of
the country. The agrarian crisis which has been building up for many years has been
paid lip service by almost all political parties. It appears that the only solution
available to the politicians is waiver of farmer loans. Luckily in our state, the
land is endowed with natural richness that most farmers do not take loans for farming.
If farmers and their products are not cared for, we may not have anything to eat.
As a state we are already importing most crops and vegetables. After all, we cannot
eat plastic, money or metal. There are already frightening reports of synthetic rice
and synthetic eggs.
Despite heavy rains and abundant rivers, many of our towns and villages are facing
water crisis. There were water crisis in many district HQs and the capital Itanagar
itself. It all points to poor planning and execution of water supply system in our
towns and villages. There is acute water shortage in many parts of the country and
the world. One scholar has predicted that the next world war will be fought over
There were some good news also. Three of our women, Mamu Hage, Chajat Lowang and
Duyu Kampu did us proud by qualifying for the Civil Services with good rankings.
It was followed by the good news that Pasighat has been included in the latest list
of approved Smart Cities. Approval for Smart City is just the beginning. The actual
work of transforming Pasighat into a truly Smart City will be arduous and will require
meticulous planning and strict implementation of projects. One of the most important
components of a truly Smart City is smart and responsible citizens.
Then came the announcement by the state govt that the retirement age of all state
govt employees has been raised to 60 years from 58 years! The decision is being opposed
by the AAPSU and unemployed youth of the state. Despite the increment of retirement
age, CoSAAP has decided to go for a pen down strike across the state. It seems it
is a fight between parents and
The nation also worked up towards the implementation of the so called ‘revolutionary’
GST or Goods and Services Tax from 01 Jul. There are many changes in the tax slabs
on various goods and services. One immediate affect is the likely increase in phone
The movie Tubelight, with our own smart, young actor Matin Rey Tangu was also released
in the month. Despite the accomplished Salman Khan, young Matin Rey turned out to
be the star of the movie. However, the audience was left wondering that if Rey could
be drafted as the child actor, why didn’t the producers look for a local girl from
north east to be the heroine instead of a Chinese girl? Hindi-Chini bhai-bhai? (The

Candle light march at Pasighat over murder of student leader

and failure to arrest the accused despite having material clue.
Alleging that the eye witnesses of the incident and other associates of the victim
were not properly inquired by the police, the Boring Olung Welfare Society demanded
that the state government institute a SIT to probe the case with proper analysis
of the CCTV footage.
Condemning the killing of Ojing, BBK (Youth) President Aling Pinggam and President
