Chandigarh, June 9

In a drive to recover the arrears of lease money (in crores), the CHB has issued public notices to more than 10 000 persons residing in the flats of Sector 43, 45, 47 and 63 allotted by the Board. According to sources, the allottees have been directed to deposit the arrears soon or face action as per law. 

In the recent survey conducted by the CHB, it was found that arrears ranging from Rs 10,000 to Rs 2 lakh have been pending towards the allottees. In the past 45 years, the CHB has constructed more than 60,000 flats and a majority of them have been allotted on lease.

The owners of these flats are required to deposit the lease money fixed by the government, with the CHB on a yearly basis.

Most properties are covered under the lease agreement. The audit department has also raised the issue of non-recovery of lease amount from the defaulters in the past. This money is a major source of the CHB revenue.

All property owners have to deposit the amount and get a no-due certificate. It has been observed in many cases that the owners failed to pay the lease money and the arrears increase year by year till litigation starts. 

Sources said individual records of all property owners were being updated on computer. The record will be connected with the online system and the dues will be shown at the time of depositing instalments. 

Rs 53l recovered from small flat owners 

  • n The CHB has recovered rent worth more than Rs 53 lakh from the dwellers of small flats allotted under the rehabilitation scheme in sectors. 
  • n The CHB has launched a special drive for the collection of dues by organising a special camp at Government Model High School, Dhanas Colony, till June 16.
