A division bench of Justice Abhay Oka and Justice Girish Kulkarni heard a public interest litigation by activist Ketan Tirodkar seeking action against double allottees.
On September 23 , the judges said rather than "bits and pieces" of enquiry on information provided by Tirodkar it is better that a committee or even "one person looks into all cases of allotments" made under 5 per cent Urban Land Ceiling and 2 per cent under Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority right from the date of the first application.
Advocate General Darius Khambata while conveying the government's consent said it would prefer a one man committee to conduct the probe. The judges said the retired judge would require assistance of officials to help him access records. The judges said the inquiry would be right from the 1982 government resolution under which allotments were made.
The judges asked Khambata to produce a draft of terms and references of aspects into which the retired judge will conduct the inquiry. They said they will also get the name of the retired judge to be appointed from the HC registry and pass formal orders on October 6.
