CHENNAI: The Madras High Court has dismissed a petition by a person seeking to cancel the allotment of 0.27 acres of land by the Tamil Nadu Housing Board to actor M.C.Joseph Vijay in Padi and reconvey the same to his family.
The petitioner, P.Karthikeyan, said that out of the 2.37 acres acquired from his family, nearly 0.27 acres had been allotted to the actor. This was illegal. The petitioner said he was entitled to reconveyance of the land.
In its counter affidavit, the housing board submitted that the land had been granted to Mr.Vijay as per the government’s direction as an alternative place since the actor who was a successful purchaser of nearly eight grounds in Ashok Nagar in a public auction conducted by the board in 2002 could not use the property. That was because the place was likely to be affected by the Inner Circular Corridor Road alignment.
In his order, Justice P. Jyothimani said from a reading of the counter affidavit and also after perusal of the various orders by the High Court, it was clear that the allotment of land at Padi was by virtue of allotment of an alternative site as the actor could not use the Ashok Nagar property. There was no illegality or irregularity in the allotment, he said.
