Justice Dhingra panel to submit report on Vadra land deals today

The one-man commission is investigating irregularities in granting land development licences in Gurgaon during the earlier Congress government rule in Haryana

The Justice Dhingra Commission is set to submit its report to the Haryana government into controversial Gurgaon land deals, including the licence granted to Sky Light Hospitality Private Limited, a company owned by Congress chief Sonia Gandhi’s son-in-law Robert Vadra, ‘The Hindu’ has reported.

The one-man commission set up in May, 2015, under Justice Dhingra, retired judge of Delhi High Court, is investigating irregularities in grant of land development licences in Gurgaon during the earlier Congress government rule in Haryana.

The commission was initially supposed to submit its findings by December 8, 2015, but its tenure was extended first by six months and later by three months.

According to a report by Outlook magazine, the land in question, purchased by Vadra’s company for around Rs 7 crore, was sold to DLF for an amount of Rs 58 crore. The report added that in the period between its purchase and sale, the then Bhupinder Singh Hooda-led government in the state granted a Change of Land Use (CLU) permission for the land. Due to the CLU permission, the report said that the value of the plot of land in question shot up sharply.

Vadra has time and again dismissed the allegations against him and said he would always be “used for political gains”.
