During a span of only one year, more than Rs. 29 crores were collected from approx. 250 gullible investors in the garb of providing DDA approved flats under Land Pooling Policy of DDA and only 6.75 crores have been utilized for purchase of dedicated land for questioned project of the society and remaining 22.25 crores (approx) have been misappropriated and siphoned off to various other entities. During investigation, it has been revealed that almost all cheques through which the funds of Society of approx Rs.20 Crores were diverted to one M/s Easing Life consultant Pvt Ltd without any justification and it bears signatures of accused Aakash Bhardwaj and other office bearers.

As per the notified policy , in order to make the sector eligible for development, a minimum of 70% contiguous land of the developable area within the sector free of encumbrances, is to be pooled. As per the investigation and the contents available on the alleged website, it has come out that the name of land pooling policy of DDA has been used to give an impression and spread a message in the masses that the projects are duly authorized by the competent authority. In this way, the facts have been misrepresented and the material information with regard to the DDA’s approval pertaining to the proposed projects has been suppressed in order to induce the public at large, the officials said.
