Adarsh Society scam politicians and army persons involved . Is it 500 to 800 Crore Rupees Scam ? Complete story – Another shameful story from India.

The meaning of the name Adarsh is An Ideal
Yes corruption is our religion .
So following religion is a good Adarsh, a good ideal.

Rishi Raj Singh, Joint Director of CBI said that CBI has asked for three records from the adarsh society.

The CBI proposes to probe into the declarations and affidavits filed by the members. "Its line of thinking is: can a member whose monthly income is between Rs 25,000 and Rs 75,000 afford a flat sold at between Rs 80 lakh and Rs 1 crore?" said the official. "Of the 103-odd members, the monthly income of over 45 members is between Rs 25,000 and 75,000. The CBI will probe into the source of funds of all such members.

The sources said the Army had been in "de facto" possession of the prime 6,490-sq mt plot of land for over 60 years before the Adarsh Society highrise came up there in 2003.

The highrise is built on 6,450 sq metres within the Colaba naval area and the
land was cleared to built the society on the condition of housing war veterans but now has 104 members including senior army commanders, a former environment minister, legislators and state bureaucrats, top army officers and Navy officers.

A controversy has erupted over how the Adarsh society in upscale Colaba, originally meant to be a six-storey structure to house Kargil war heroes and widows, got converted into a 100-metre-tall building 31-storey building

A defence ministry probe has "prima facie" found a "criminal conspiracy" in scam-hit Adarsh Housing Society project in Mumbai in which some relatives of Maharashtra chief minister Ashok Chavan being beneficiaries has emerged.

The WNC objected to the construction allegedly as it also violates the stringent Mumbai Coastal Regulation Zone (CRZ) norms.

Under the Works of Defence Act, 1903, any development, private or public, falling within 1,000 metres of any defence establishment, must get a no objection certificate from the defence ministry.

We can not even make the laws , and we talk about becoming super power.

In a statement issued by retired brigadier M.M. Wanchu, president of the society, said: “The fact is that no defence land has been grabbed, not even an inch has been encroached by Adarsh Society.”

Each of the 103 members of adarsh society will get 90% discount and will pay just 10% of amount. And in future they will sell these flats with full profits .

"This property is in the same line as Taj President at Cuffe Parade and opposite the Ambanis' Seawind building, where residential prices are over Rs 60,000 per square foot. An average two- to three-bedroom-hall-kitchen (BKH) apartment could cost between Rs 6 crore and Rs 8.5 crore in this area," said a leading real estate consultant.

But these members will just pay Rs 60 lakh to Rs 85 lakh for their apartments in the sea-facing skyscraper.
Original and real cost of the each flat is more than Rs.8 Crore.

According to former Congress MLC and one of the leading members of the society, Kanhaiyalal Gidwani, the flats in Adarsh measure between 625 square feet and 1,000 square feet (carpet area) in size. "On each floor, there are four apartments — three are of 2 BHK and one of 3 BHK," Gidwani told TOI on Wednesday.
The politician and his sons own three flats in the building.
The members were asked to pay the amounts in installments over the past five years

The flats, including the land, cost the society and its members Rs 26 crore. The market value is anywhere between Rs 500 to Rs 800 crore

Former Army chiefs Generals Deepak Kapoor and N C Vij and former Navy chief Admiral Madhavendra Singh and Vice-Chief Gen Shantnu Choudhary also got the flats in this society.
Former chief secretary D K Sankaran's son, Sanjoy, is among the allottees.
The society sent out the names of the 103 flat owners in its press release clarifying its position, issued on October 26 and it also includes the names of former Union Minister for Environment Suresh Prabhu, NCP MLC Jitendra Avhad, Congress leader Kanhaiyalal Gidwani and his two sons, a close aide of a senior Maharashtra Minister, the children of some bureaucrats, serving bureaucrats, Seema Vyas and Idzes Kundan, and an individual by the name of S.B. Chavan and the name of Maharashtra Chief Minister Ashok Chavan's late mother- in- law Bhagwati Manoharlal Sharma. Seema Sharma and Madanlal Sharma.
Bhagwati Manoharlal Sharma, 77, passed away at 'Varsha', the Chief Minister's official residence in July.

If someone dies in our home, is he not our close relative ?

As the scam is exposed , now they are saying we do not want flats. We will returned them.

Maharashtra Chief Minister Ashok Chavan has denied that the Adarsh housing society land was meant for Kargil martyrs. For the families of those who died in the Kargil war it’s yet another betrayal.

As per CNN IBN this adarsh society land real estate address in Mumbai was supposed to be for the families of those brave jawans who lost their lives protecting our nation during the Kargil war.

Chief Minister Ashok Chavan said that land belongs to the State Government, and it was not reserved for Kargil widows or war heroes.
"The land belongs to the state government, based on the Collector's records. Revenue department land granted to the Society as per GR of 9.7.1999. This land falls outside defense boundary. It was not reserved for war veterans or Kargil heroes," said Chavan.

Defence officials say that if the allottees of the 31-storey complex move into the apartments adjoining Pethe Marg at Colaba, it would be a huge security hazard and even a possible soft target for terrorists.
While the engineering transport facility is located around 27 metres from the adarsh society building wall, the two army and navy depots are just 100 metres from the building.

Surprisingly, even the defence establishment till recently has been denying the risk. "In response to the RTI query filed by Yogacharaya Anandji in March 2010, their office said there is no security risk because it falls outside the defence area,"
Anandji who first blew the whistle on the scam. alleges that the fact that many defence officers are also involved in the scam must have influenced the RTI response.

The Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) is already investigating how the prime land in Mumbai which was marked for Kargil was widows and veterans was given to VIPs instead. The Union Environment Ministry has also raised a red flag saying they did not give the society any clearance.

Former army chiefs, politicians and bureaucrats have all been allotted flats here for a fraction of the market rate that is just 1 /3 rate.

The Ministry of Environment and Forests (MoEF) formally stated that it has not given any clearance to the controversial Adarsh Housing Cooperative Society in Mumbai's Colaba, which falls in the Coastal Regulation Zone (CRZ) limits.

CNN IBN got the letter which shows that three of 104 allottees are chief minister Chavan's relatives. The society also agreed to allocate 40 per cent of the flats to non-defense personnel.
“My family members have given up their society membership today,” said Chavan.
This came after CNN-IBN exposed the housing scam.

Chavan also issued a clearance letter to Adarsh Housing Cooperative Society when he was revenue minister.
The letter said that Adarsh Housing Cooperative Society should be cleared and flats in the society should be alloted in open catagory.

Presently, there are 103 members in the society, of whom 37 belong to the defence (forces).
All the plans were approved by the BrihanMumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC)”, he said, putting the blame at the door of the civic body governed by the opposition Shiv Sena-Bharatiya Janata Party combine.

This clearly shows that all the Indian political parties are united when matter comes to the corruption or salary rise and pay hike and security .

SM – I will rob the bank, and if found I will return the money to bank, do you think judiciary will forgive me.

Now what will happen –
Blame game will start
Rules will be changed
Documents will be created
No one will go to jail
No FIR will be registered
Committee will be established which will give report after 10 or 20 years.

Update – Saturday, October 30, 2010 - 3.50 PM

Maharashtra Chief Minister Ashok Chavan has offered to resign. Chavan said this after his meeting with Congress party chief Sonia Gandhi and Defense Minister AK Antony.

After the meeting, while speaking to the media, Ashok Chavan said, “I have offered to resign. I have given my resignation letter to Sonia Gandhi.
I have given all the details to party high command.
I have told her to see and it is up to her now. Investigations are on.
CBI will investigate the matter. After the investigation it will be clear about the land ownership.”

Senior Congress leader Janardan Dwivedi said that a two-member Congress committee including AK Antony and Finance Minister of India Pranab Mukherjee will review the Adarsh Society scam.
The two-member Congress committee is likely to submit its report by Sunday. The final call will be taken at the AICC meeting on November 2.

the Defence Ministry has now admitted that the land belonged to the Army as of May 2010. The admission comes in response to an RTI application filed on the matter.

Who will take over from chief minister Ashok Chavan? Who will be next chief minister of Maharashtra ?
51-year-old Chavan, son of late Union Home Minister and former Chief Minister S B Chavan, became chief minister on December 8, 2008 after Vilasrao Deshmukh made his way out in the wake of 26/11 terror attack in Mumbai.

it would be difficult to select a new chief minister. Vilasrao Deshmukh and Sushil Kumar Shinde both are involved in the Adarsh Housing Society scam.

This is good opportunity for Mr.Narayan Rane to fulfill his dream of becoming Chief Minister of Maharashtra but media says he also got the flats in this society, which he has refused and still it is not proven.
Minister of State for Science and Technology and the Prime Minister's Office, Prithviraj Chavan, is one of the frontrunners for replacing Ashok Chavan at Mantralaya.

Vilasrao Deshmukh as the Chief Minister gave initial permissions to Adarsh society, while Sushil Kumar Shinde as Chief Minister gave final sanction to the project.

Highly placed sources said tonight that Chavan, who became chief minister a year ago, is likely to be asked to step down in the wake of the Adarsh Housing scam.

Chavan had been involved in clearing papers for the upscale high-rise Adarsh building project in his previous capacity as the Revenue minister.

This sounds like the makings of a Bollywood movie. What a tragedy, really. I think so highly of India and its people and it is ridiculous for me to be so unrealistic because I know corruption exists. It's bad enough that VIP dignitaries and military officers who are not deserving of accomodations in this building are living there but they are getting the apartments for an outrageously low price. You'd think, at the very least, they would pay a fair rate. Deplorable, really. Please keep us posted on all this.

We, too, have a great deal of corruption in the U. S., my friend. It is universal, I'm afraid.

This are the most Shameless Culprits, who cooked their bread on Shaeed Jawan's Cremations. A respectable society for Kargil Widows has turned into BADMAASHON ki SOCIETY. Every illegal ones on this plot must be Court Martial. More shocking was to see some Shameless Congress Politicians on TV, justifying the loot from Kargil Shaheed Widows that Homeless Politicians and Officials has birth right to get the plot. CM Ashok Chavan's lame argument about land as an Govt Propriety does not give right to Politicians and Officials to loot Govt or Public resources by paying fraction of price. Some of them by giving excuse about the unawareness of ownership of land and paying fraction of price, can't they imagine that they are shopping at Grey Market. CBI inquiry is welcomed as Restaurant Menu. Disease of Corruption has spread from Congress to Army and other Officials. In past we use to see Politicians relationship with Land Mafia, today we see Politicians, Army Officials, Govt Officials becomes LAND MAFIAS, Today, India has became the DEN of Corrupted Politicians, Officials and Citizens with Dead Soul. Rahul, Sonia, PM should ask their own CM and Politicians about any progress besides LOOTING India, rather than asking Nitish in Bihar. Surprisingly, we don't find AICC spoke person Manish Tiwari to give his Sugar Coated Lies on Media. GOD BLESS INDIA.
