Despite concessions, these institutions have been charging heavy fee from students. In a communication to the development authorities and housing board establishment in Uttar Pradesh, government officials in Lucknow have decided to review the land allotment concessions to private educational and medical institutions. In this context, the officials of the Ghaziabad Development Authority (GDA) received a communication to attend a review meeting to be held on August 3 at Lucknow.
In their communication, the officials have specifically mentioned that the matter of granting land allotment concessions to these institutions needs to be reviewed as they were found charging exorbitant fees and charges even after receiving land at a concession.
“The meeting has been called to review the concession rate. The outcome of the meeting would decide whether the concession rate needs to be decreased, scrapped or reviewed with stricter terms, “said Narendra Kumar Chaudhary, vice-chairman, Ghaziabad Development Authority. As per present norms, any such institution is allowed allotment of land at only 40% price of the sector rate of the area.
“Despite heavy concessions, the institutions have been in dock for charging heavy fee from students. They seldom follow the government orders for allowing concessions to below poverty line (BPL) students. Their concessions need to be scrapped at the earliest and previous allottees should be dealt with strictly to follow norms laid during their concessional allotments, “said Sachin Soni, a social worker and RTI activist.
