Land auction money of Gag Dhagara village; High Court to hear Execution Appeal on May 24


The Punjab and Haryana High Court will hear on May 24 an Execution Appeal filed by  Gag Dhagara village.

As per HC case status posed on its website case id EA-13-2023 filed by Gram Panchayat and another against the state of Punjab and others will be heard on May 24.

Village sarpanch Banat Kaur has submitted in the court that said the former sarpanches had filed a petition in the Punjab and Haryana High Court in 2015 seeking directions to a private contractor to deposit the balance amount of the contract money with the panchayat.
 She said in her appeal that then Justice Surya Kant and Justice PB Bajanthri, disposing of the petition, had said in their judgment on February 2, 2016, that the needful, including the determination of the amount payable by the private contractor, should be done within three months. It had directed the Mining Department to deduct the amount from the security deposit and release the gram panchayat’s share within a month.
The sarpanch submitted that an amount of Rs 1,48,15,757 was deducted by the Mining Department from the security deposit of the contractor, but the gram panchayat still didn’t get anything.


She said the gram panchayat, in its meeting held on November 19, 2002, had passed a resolution for recovering the pending amount from the Mining Department and the Block Development and Panchayat Officer, Nurmahal. It sent the resolution to the Sub-Divisional Magistrate, Phillaur, but still, the panchayat was waiting for the release of the amount.
The sarpanch said the Mining Department had auctioned village mining khud in 2013 which remained in operation till 2015.
