YEIDA smells another scam, starts inquiry into land purchase in Hathras

Smelling another scam, YEIDA has ordered inquiry into the land purchased in a village in Hathras district in 2013. Authority officials said this purchase too was made using a modus operandi similar to that used in the Rs 126 scam. The inquiry was ordered after YEIDA chairman and Meerut division commissioner Prabhat Kumar received a complaint from a Noida resident about Ramesh Bansal. YEIDA CEO Arunvir Singh told TOI Kumar has asked for an inquiry and named GM (planning) Meena Bhargava as investigating officer. He said the extent of land purchased and amount of taxpayer’s money involved in the purchase, can only be revealed after the inquiry. A written order has been passed by the CEO to this affect on Tuesday.
