Mysuru: The District Consumer Information Centre has advised the beneficiaries of Rajiv Gandhi Rural Housing Scheme, who have been denied civic amenities by the Mysuru City Corporation (MCC) to approach the permanent Lok Adalat Court here for getting justice.
Addressing a press meet here yesterday, the Centre President H.R. Sundareshan said that the beneficiaries of the scheme were selected and allotted Ashraya houses after consulting people representatives. But the authorities had failed to provide basic amenities such as drinking water, drainage, roads, power, etc., even after more than 10 years of allotment.
Alleging that the authorities were taking advantage of the lack of unity among allottees, Sundareshan said that the beneficiaries of Ashraya houses who have been denied civic amenities, contacted the Centre seeking help for getting back the money, which they had paid for the houses.
The Centre, in turn, has advised the beneficiaries to lodge a complaint with the permanent Lok Adalat, for which the beneficiaries need not have to pay any fee. Also, both the parties are bound by the verdict of the Lok Adalat, he said.
For details, call 92439-99713.
The Centre office-bearers G.L. Nagaraj Urs, M.N. Sooryanarayan, M.K. Raju, B. Geetha were present at the press meet.
