Former guardian minister Son bought MHADA flat on bogus affidavit

Nagpur News: Son of former guardian minister and senior Congress leader Satish Chaturvedi, Dushyant has landed in trouble after the Maharashtra Housing and Area Development Authority accused him of submitting a false affidavit for purchasing a house.

According investigating officer of MHADA Dushyant claimed in the affidavit that he did not own any other house and it was on basis of this claim that a house was allotted to him. Moreover, Mhada has also issued a notice for him to vacate the flat within a week warning him to comply with the order or legal action would be initiated against him.

Dushyant Chaturvedi had purchased a flat in residential complex constructed by MHADA on the Amrawati road. As per norms Dushyant submitted an affidavit that clearly stated that he did not own any property within city limits. On the basis of this affidavit he was allotted a flat in the complex on July 17, 2004.

MLA Krishna Khopde brought the matter to light in 2009. In his complaint Khopde informed MHADA that Dushyant also owned property in Kotwal Nagar and Karorpati gali in the city. After the complaint a probe was initiated against Dushyant and during course of investigations the complaint was found to be valid. Soon after Dushyant was issued the notice of eviction.

Register fraud case against Dushyant

This clearly is a fraud case, claimed Khopde. Khopde further accused that Dushyant had also purchased a flat from MHADA near the RTO office as well.
