In 80s, 13 city schools got land at Rs 60 per acre: Estate Officer

A day after the High Court asked the Chandigarh Administration to furnish details about the rate at which Carmel Convent was allotted land, a local RTI activist has received information regarding the same. Over the last three decades, the Estate Office had given land to various schools free of cost while some were charged up to Rs 3000 per acre. The Estate Office does not have any information on the price charged from the Carmel Convent School. In reply to an RTI application filed by RK Garg in November 2009, the Estate Office said while the Air Force School was allotted land free of cost, Navodya Vidyalya was given at a token money of Re 1 and Kendriya Vidyalya, Sector 47, was allotted at an annual rent of Rs 100. The reply does not find any mention of the price attached to 28,171 square yards of land allotted to Central School allotted in 1977.
