UP govt. to constitute committee to probe into land allotment to Jaypee Group

The Uttar Pradesh Government will constitute a committee to probe

into the allotment of 25,000 acres of land to set up a cement factory in Sonbhadra district to the Jaypee Group.

The committee will submit its report within a month.

The state government had last week taken back the allotted land from the real estate group

after Uttar Pradesh Forest Department raised objection over the land allotment claiming that the company was carrying out illegal mining in the region.

The matter was taken up in Supreme Court recently where a reply was sought from the UP government on the matter.

The real estate is already facing heat over the delayed possession of apartments in its housing projects spread across Noida and Greater Noida. (ANI)
