As the managing committee (MC) members of DPS CGHS are blatantly defying the law in a number of criminal cases that they are facing, their arrest and custodial interrogation have become inevitable to check the incidents of crime.

Case Update

1. The Labour Court of Delhi has issued summons to DPS CGHS MC President Neeraj Vaish in a labour rights violation case filed by a group of poor workers whose jobs were terminated mercilessly by the DPS CGHS MC. The Court has directed the MC members to appear before the court authority on March 19, 2018.

2. Similarly, these DPS CGHS MC members are desperately trying to evade an inquiry ordered by the Registrar Cooperative Societies (RCS) of the Delhi Government to investigate the “financial and other irregularities” that have been happening in the Society for years. The total money lost in corruption is estimated to be crores of rupees.

3. The DPS CGHS MC members are also facing an inquiry directed by India’s top anti-corruption organization Central Vigilance Commission (CVC).

4. As the DPS CGHS MC members have been trying to deceive the civil authorities, now – in March 2018 – the Economic Offences Wing of Delhi Police has started investigating the case.

5. While various investigations are progressing, the RCS office must immediately dismiss / dissolve the DPS CGHS MC.

Labour Rights Violation Case

 

  • In the growing list of criminal activities at DPS Cooperative Group Housing Society (CGHS) in Dwarka, the managing committee (MC) members – who are facing multiple investigations – are threatening poor labourers who were illegally laid off by them a few months ago.
  • As the harassed labourers have filed a legal case against the accused MC members, they are now threatening the labourers to withdraw their case. The labourers are obviously terrified, but the accused MC members are using their influence to circumvent the law.
  • On January 12, 2018, the scared workers wrote a letter to the Labour Minister and Labour Commissioner of the Delhi Government with a request to save them from the criminal intimidation by the MC members of DPS CGHS. But the accused MC members have not yet been caught and punished.
  • The bureaucrats and politicians in Delhi Government as well as the Government of India have failed to protect the labour rights – which are human rights – in this case.
  • Justice delayed is justice denied.

Case Highlights

Poor workers – who are facing increased torture – allege that they were not being paid minimum wages while they were forced by the MC members of DPS CGHS to stay on duty continuously for 12 hours every day without paying overtime remuneration.

As this is an extreme case of labour rights violation, the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC), Home (Police) Department, and the Labour Ministry of Delhi Government have intervened to protect the harmed workers’ rights.

The office of the Labour Commissioner of Delhi Government has been trying to chase the accused with multiple notices. But the accused managing committee (MC) members at the DPS Housing Society – who are also facing multiple corruption inquiries – have not yet been caught.

A leading labour union – Hindustan Majdoor Union – has also been trying to help the workers by filing legal cases. But the accused MC members have been blatantly evading the long arm of law and have gone unpunished.

The accused MC members of DPS CGHS – who frequently terrorize the people who oppose their criminal activities – are issuing criminal threats to poor workers forcing them to withdraw their case.

On January 12, 2018, the scared workers wrote a letter to the Labour Minister and Labour Commissioner of the Delhi Government with a request to save them from the criminal intimidation by the MC members of DPS CGHS.

In their letter, the poor workers allege that the DPS CGHS MC – through MC member Manguram Tyagi – is repeatedly threatening them to withdraw their case. This is a case of criminal intimidation to oppress the poor workers who are being treated like slaves by the DPS CGHS MC members.

The Home Department of Delhi Government under directions from NHRC has asked the office of the Registrar Cooperative Societies (RCS) of Delhi Government – which is supposed to regulate the working of DPS Housing Society – to take action.

Role of RCS Office

The RCS office – which has been protecting the accused for unknown reasons in multiple cases of irregularities – has not taken any action in this case also to protect the labour rights. As a result, the accused MC members (names given below) are obstructing the investigation in order to deceive the law-enforcement agencies and avoid a possible arrest.

The accused are also misusing their authority as MC members to stonewall the investigations and they have also indicated that they will use public money collected from Society members to defend themselves.

In a letter dated December 13, 2017 (signed by MC Secretary M.N. Sampathkumar who is one of the accused in the case), the MC members have asked each member in the Society to pay them Rs. 2 lakh ostensibly for an illegal construction / repair project worth crores of rupees.

In all probability, the accused MC members will use part of this money collected from members to fight a number of legal cases that they are facing.

This is the height of injustice that the rich MC members are allowed by the government to use public money to defend their criminal activities while the poor workers who lost their jobs are fighting their case without any help.

With their continuation as MC members in the DPS Housing Society, the accused are trying to influence the investigations which is also a case of ‘obstruction of justice’.

The accused MC members are also misusing the Society website and office to spread false, concocted information to deceive the Society members as well as authorities.

As massive corruption has been happening in the DPS CGHS, the RCS office has intended to hold an investigation under Section 61 of DCS Act 2003 into the “financial and other irregularities”at the DPS CGHS.

But this investigation will only be reduced to a farce, as the RCS office has not dismissed the MC members who are misusing their positions to interfere in the investigations and intimidate key witnesses.

In its letter dated December 26, 2017, the RCS office has also asked the current MC members to respond to 11 different cases that I had filed in different government departments against the misdeeds of the MC members – who have not yet responded.

So, the dismissal of the MC is an absolute and immediate necessity for all investigations to happen in a fair manner. The government and law-enforcement agencies must also seek the custodial interrogation of the past and present MC members of DPS Housing Society in order to know the extent of crimes.

The RCS office should have dismissed the DPS Housing Society MC to get the investigation happened in a fair, unencumbered manner. But strangely the RCS office has not yet dismissed the MC and the accused MC members have gone scot-free while their nefarious activities are increasing.

This is not a one-off case. Today, the rights of thousands of poor workers are being violated in Delhi’s cooperative group housing societies which are mostly controlled by criminal MC members.


The 2016 Global Slavery Index revealed that India has the maximum number of slaves – including men, women, and children – living in some form of slavery.

This fact is manifested by a bone-chilling case in India’s capital New Delhi. An upmarket group housing complex in Delhi’s Dwarka region – which is said to be the largest residential suburb in Asia – is still employing men as bonded labourers and the managers of the building treat the poor men as slaves.

This case is being studied and pursued by RMN Foundation – a humanitarian organization in India. Among its various philanthropic activities, RMN Foundation runs an exclusive service Clean House on its global news service to reveal the cases of corruption and other illegal activities in Delhi’s cooperative group housing societies where millions of people live.

This particular case is of DPS Cooperative Group Housing Society, Plot No. 16, Sector 4, Dwarka, New Delhi – where extreme labour rights violations and other illegal activities have been happening for years.

Summary of the Case

A group of security guards, who were appointed by the managing committee (MC) of DPS Housing Society, filed a complaint with the office of the Labour Commissioner of Delhi alleging that they had been facing increased torture inflicted upon them by the MC members of the Society.

In their complaint, the security guards allege that they were not being paid minimum wages while they were forced by the MC members to stay on duty continuously for 12 hours every day without paying overtime allowance.

The office of the Labour Commissioner of Delhi issued a notice to DPS Housing Society MC members who are blatantly trying to ignore the notice under false pretexts and have refused to honour their written contract with the security guards.

The MC members (MC has 7 members) took the decision to appoint the security guards and fix their wages without taking formal approvals in the General Body Meetings (GBMs) or without the approval of other members of the Society. Obviously, the MC members are personally responsible for this alleged crime. If other ordinary Society members support this action, they should also face the legal consequences for abetment to crime.

It is not only a case of labour rights violation and breach of contract, but also a case of extreme corruption. After terminating the jobs of Society’s security employees, the MC members hired new security guards through a private agency without GBM approvals and without following the financial process while the security contract is worth lakhs of rupees.

As it was difficult for the MC members to take bribes from the terminated security guards who were employees in the Society, they hired a private agency fraudulently. Now, in order to hide their crime, the MC members are showing some fake documents suddenly inserted in the Society records about security guards’ case.

Although the Registrar Cooperative Societies (RCS) of Delhi Government – which is supposed to regulate the Society affairs – has been formally informed about this case, strangely the RCS office is reluctant to take any action against the MC members.

NHRC has directed the Labour Commissioner and the Registrar (RCS) to take action in this case.

The DPS Housing Society MC members are already facing an inquiry directed by India’s top anti-corruption organization Central Vigilance Commission (CVC). They are trying to get this inquiry scuttled unscrupulously in connivance with the RCS officials who are also the target of the inquiry.

Strangely, the office of the Labour Commissioner which is supposed to protect labour rights is showing its helplessness and inability to deal with the MC members and protect labour rights of the persecuted security guards.

In a letter (dated January 10, 2018) written to NHRC, a Labour Officer in the Joint Labour Commissioner (South-West) office of the Delhi Government has informed that the case has been sent to Labour Court Dwarka for adjudication.

Poor workers - who are facing increased torture and threats - are running from pillar to post in order to seek justice.
Poor workers – who are facing increased torture and threats – are running from pillar to post in order to seek justice.

With this letter, the Joint Labour Commissioner’s office has tried to wash its hands of the case instead of catching the culprits who are in fact capable of influencing any investigation with their money and resources.

The concerned authorities fail to comprehend the fact that with all this delay in throwing the case from one office to another, the justice is being delayed – and hence denied to the harmed workers. Moreover, these workers do not have financial resources to fight their case in different courts.

Why can’t the authorities and law-enforcement agencies catch, prosecute, and punish the DPS CGHS MC members who have been circumventing the law?

The offices of the Chief Minister of Delhi and Lt. Governor (LG) of Delhi were also informed about this case. But they work as mere post offices and just forward the public complaints from one desk to another without taking any decision.

Finally, the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) – which is India’s top organization to protect human rights – had to intervene in this case (NHRC Case No. 4807/30/07/2017). The Home Department of Delhi Government under directions from NHRC urged the Labour Commissioner and the Registrar Cooperative Societies (RCS) of Delhi Government to take action in this case.

So far, all the MC members involved in this case have deceptively managed to hoodwink the authorities and circumvent the law in order to get off scot-free.

The government and other law-enforcement agencies should immediately frame the charges and start legal proceedings in order to catch and punish the culprits in this labour rights abuse and corruption case.

Now, in order to seek justice, the poor guards are running from pillar to post.


Here is the list of accused in the case:

Current MC Members of DPS Housing Society who failed to protect labour rights of the security guards:

  1. President: Neeraj Kumar Vaish
  2. Vice President: R. Balasubramanian
  3. Secretary: M.N. Sampathkumar
  4. Member: Ms. Leela Swami
  5. Member: Sandeep Taneja
  6. Member: Manguram Tyagi
  7. Member: Ms. Naseem Afshaque

Past MC Members of DPS Housing Society who were responsible to appoint the security guards:

  1. President: Col M.M. Shukla (Retd.)
  2. Vice President: Neeraj Kumar Vaish
  3. Member: Geeta Gautam
  4. Member: Leela Swami
  5. Member: R.K. Saggi
  6. Member: H.L. Kaul
  7. Member: K.L. Narayanan

The government and other law-enforcement agencies must also investigate the role of RCS officials who have failed to take any action against the DPS Housing Society MC members. The investigation should also extend to include the top officers in the RCS office.

Complaint in the Case

In the already spiraling spate of illegal activities at the DPS Housing Society in Dwarka, the managing committee (MC) members of the Society are now embroiled in a serious labour exploitation case.

A group of security guards, who were appointed by the MC as employees in the Society, have filed a complaint with the office of the Labour Commissioner of Delhi alleging that they had been facing increased torture inflicted upon them by the MC members of the Society.

In their complaint particularly against DPS Housing Society President Neeraj Vaish and Secretary M.N. Sampathkumar, the security guards allege that they were not being paid minimum wages while they were forced by the MC members to stay on duty continuously for 12 hours every day without paying overtime payment.

Although the past and present DPS Housing Society MC members who are accused in this case have not yet been caught and punished, these MC members have grossly violated the labour laws.

Labour Laws

The UN agency International Labour Organization (ILO), for example, treats workers’ rights by incorporating them into two articles of the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights, which is the basis of the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights.

Of these, Article 23 states that “Everyone has the right to work, to free choice of employment, to just and favorable conditions of work and to protection against unemployment.”

Identified by the ILO in the ‘Declaration of the Fundamental Principles and Rights at Work’, core labor standards are “widely recognized to be of particular importance”.

Moreover, according to ILO, the labour rights are universally applicable, regardless of whether the relevant conventions have been ratified. Core labor standards are important human rights and are recognized in widely ratified international human rights instruments including the most widely ratified human rights treaty with 193 parties, and the  International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR) with 160 parties.

According to the International Labor Rights Forum (ILRF), the ILO estimates the total loss of compensation to victims of forced labor at $21 billion annually, which is a lucrative financial incentive for those who perpetrate this crime.

It further states that the victims tend to be from vulnerable poor and migrant populations, and this financial loss only perpetuates a generational cycle of poverty that often passes from parents to children.

In addition, according to ILRF / ILO, “victims of forced labor are often left with emotional and physical scars that make their reintegration into society difficult.”

Violation of Labour Laws

Obviously, all the labour laws are applicable in India which is a member state of the United Nations (UN) and its labour rights agency ILO.

However, the accused MC members of DPS Housing Society are blatantly violating the labour laws and they have refused to honour their own written contract that they signed in their personal capacity (without GBM approval) with the workers. But the Delhi Government and law-enforcement agencies have failed to frame specific charges and catch the culprits.

The government’s failure in this case to protect people’s rights will further tarnish India’s image in the global arena. Recently, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein voiced his concerns about the increasing human rights violations in India. He also said that the “human rights situation in India is darker and dangerous.”

The security guards of DPS Housing Society – who are being treated as slaves – are experiencing this dangerous human rights situation. The guards allege in their complaint that Neeraj Vaish and M.N. Sampathkumar always told them that their balance money is being deposited in a separate fund, but they were never told about the details of that (secret) fund and they never received the money from that fund.

Thus, in order to deprive the security guards of their minimum wages and overtime payments, Neeraj Vaish and M.N. Sampathkumar told lies to cheat the poor guards.

Corruption and Threats with Labour Rights Violation

This is also a case of corruption and criminal intimidation. According to the Vigilance Manual 2017 of India’s top anti-corruption organization Central Vigilance Commission (CVC), corruption is manifested in various forms such as bribery, nepotism, willful action or willful inaction to benefit someone or to deny benefit to someone known or unknown.

It also states that corruption includes cases of favoritism and failure to follow laid down processes leading to unintended benefit to someone or denial of benefit to the deserving.

Going by CVC’s definition of corruption, Neeraj Vaish, M.N. Sampathkumar, and other MC members should also face corruption charges because they “failed to follow laid down processes leading to denial of benefit to the deserving.”

When the guards objected to this torture, Secretary M.N. Sampathkumar through a letter dated September 3, 2017 suddenly terminated their employment from September 30, 2017 without stating any reason for the job termination.

Sampathkumar ordered the poor guards to leave the job with a notice of less than a month, although they were supposed to be given 3 months’ notice as per a written agreement with the security guards. The agreement was signed in his personal capacity by a former President M.M. Shukla, who had resigned under mysterious circumstances before completing the term.

The current President Neeraj Vaish and Secretary M.N. Sampathkumar refused to honour that agreement under the pretext that it was not proper, although they never mentioned about the impropriety of the said agreement for more than a year when guards were working in the Society.

Therefore, it is not only a labour rights violation case, but it is also a “breach of contract” case for which the accused MC members need to be prosecuted.

While the case is still under litigation, the accused MC members of DPS CGHS have arbitrarily decided to become the judge, jury, and executioner in the case and refused to compensate the harmed security guards.

Worse, the accused MC members of DPS CGHS – who frequently terrorize the people who oppose their criminal activities – are issuing criminal threats to poor workers forcing them to withdraw their case.

On January 12, 2018, the scared workers wrote a letter to the Labour Minister and Labour Commissioner of the Delhi Government with a request to save them from the criminal intimidation by the MC members of DPS CGHS.

In their letter, the poor workers allege that the DPS CGHS MC – through MC member Manguram Tyagi – is repeatedly threatening them to withdraw their case. This is a case of criminal intimidation to oppress the poor workers who are being treated like slaves by the DPS CGHS MC members.

Since the accused MC members of DPS CGHS are known for telling lies, the workers fear that Manguram Tyagi and other MC members might refuse to admit the repeated threats that they had issued on January 4 and January 7, 2018. In that case, the workers claim that the police or other authorities can check the call records.

Wrong Termination Decision

When guards complained in the Labour Commissioner’s office, these MC members even called the police to threaten them and justify their unscrupulous termination decision. According to the guards, the MC members also asked them to leave the guard room when they were on duty. The guards were virtually treated like bonded labourers or slaves by the MC members which is also an offence according to the Bonded Labour System (Abolition) Act, 1976.

The DPS Housing Society MC members terminated the guards’ services arbitrarily without getting the decision approved in the General Body Meeting (GBM) of the Society members – which is mandatory.

As the MC members are known for their corrupt practices, it is possible that they might produce fake GBM approval. In that case, all those members who support this termination decision of security guards must be treated as the accomplices in the alleged crime and interrogated separately.

After removing the affected security guards, the MC members hired new security guards without discussing it in the GBM and without informing the members about the hiring process that the MC followed. The MC also failed to show the tendering process and comparative proposals of different security agencies to Society members while the security contract runs into lakhs of rupees.

This is a gross violation of the RCS (Registrar Cooperative Societies) rules and the violation can be termed as corruption according to the CVC’s definition of corruption stated above.

While the MC members control public money worth crores of rupees, they are running the Society work like it is their personal shop. The people familiar with the case believe that the MC members are behaving like the villains of a Hindi movie. They fail to realize that since the guards are thrown out of their jobs, it may be difficult for them to get a suitable job because the new employers will always hesitate to employ terminated workers.

The MC members have, in fact, mercilessly attacked poor guards’ livelihood and their dignity. They will also face social persecution at home and in the society when others will come to know that they have been thrown out of their jobs.

The individual MC members are personally responsible for this inhuman and unlawful act. So, along with other punishment prescribed in various laws that they would have violated in this case, these MC members – including Neeraj Vaish, M.N. Sampathkumar, Manguram Tyagi, and other past and present MC members – should personally compensate the guards instead of using Society funds for the purpose.

Unlawful Resistance by MC Members

As this is a case of labour rights violation, the Office of Joint Labour Commissioner (SWD) issued a notice dated 25.09.2017 to Neeraj Vaish, President of DPS Housing Society. But Neeraj Vaish and other MC members ignored that notice arrogantly.

On September 29, 2017, inspectors from the office of Labour Commissioner Delhi visited the DPS Housing Society office to meet the MC members – particularly President Neeraj Vaish and Secretary M.N. Sampathkumar.

The MC members argued illogically that since the housing society is governed by the office of the RCS (Registrar Cooperative Societies, Delhi Government), they will follow only the RCS orders. In other words, they resisted the inspection ordered by the office of Labour Commissioner – which must be treated as a case of obstruction of justice.

Neeraj Vaish and Sampathkumar failed to explain how RCS rules were preventing them to comply with labour laws for which they were questioned with a formal notice by the Labour Commissioner’s office. They also failed to explain how they terminated the services of the guards without following the GBM rules prescribed by the RCS office.

As there seems to be a clandestine arrangement between the DPS Housing Society MC members and the RCS officials, the MC members always try to take refuge behind RCS office when they are questioned for their inappropriate acts.

For example, when a few months ago Delhi Police – under the directions from the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) – came to check illegal car parking in the DPS Housing Society building, the MC members hoodwinked the police by saying that only RCS rules apply on them.

Strangely, Delhi Police accepted this weird argument and did not bother to get the illegal car parking stopped. The illegal parking in the building is posing a serious risk to people living in the Society, as it is preventing the entry of fire-fighting vehicles and ambulances in emergency situations.

Although the Assistant Director (Vigilance) of the Delhi Police informed the RCS office, the RCS office, as usual, did not take any action against the MC members of DPS Housing Society.

The MC members are also defying the order of Delhi High Court which has ruled that only one car per flat will be allowed in housing society parking lots. But the DPS Housing Society MC has brazenly decided to ignore the court order as well as the Society norms to allow about 40 members (out of a total of 90 members) to park multiple vehicles in the Society building.

On average, a car parking space covers about 100 sq. ft. and the price of one car parking space is an estimated Rs. 500,000. If the DPS Housing Society MC has allowed 40 members to park their additional vehicles under a secret deal, the corruption money in this case is estimated to be Rs. 2 crore.

Mysterious Protection from RCS Office

During the past about a decade, the successive MCs of DPS Housing Society have been committing numerous illegal activities under the mysterious protection that they enjoy from the RCS office.

In order to conceal and condone the illegal activities of the MC members, strangely the top officers in the RCS office accept the frivolous responses of the MC members while working in a perfunctory manner.

Most would know that the RCS office has a long history of corruption and reportedly many of its officers have been caught even by the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) in corruption cases. You can read about Case 1 and also Case 2 and a recent case that is being investigated.

As an excuse to protect the lawless MC members of DPS Housing Society, the RCS office unnecessarily gives a big importance to the decisions of the General Body Meetings (GBMs). But despite receiving numerous complaints from the affected members, the RCS office has refused to realize the fact that GBMs have become a big fraud at DPS Housing Society.

For example, the MC’s permission to allow illegal car parking to about 40 members is a kind of bribe to those members to win their vote and support in elections and GBMs – and thus get even the illegal decisions approved by the majority of members – which is in fact a group of law-breaking members.

Similarly, to fraudulently win members’ support, the MC has allowed illegal building alterations in individual flats. Thus, all GBMs – which are mostly attended by such law-breaking members – are bogus. Multiple objections have been raised by the aggrieved members about the faulty process of holding GBMs but strangely the RCS office has always ignored them.

When a group of senior citizens requested the RCS office to save them from dust and noise pollution that will come from the planned construction activity at the DPS Housing Society, the RCS office again did not take any action against the MC members.

People fail to understand the secret behind RCS officials’ extreme attachment with the MC members of DPS Housing Society.

The DPS Housing Society MC members are committing all unlawful acts under the garb of an ‘elected body.’

Society Election and Corruption

The MC members boast that they have come unopposed in the MC office. That has been happening for the past many years for no honest person wants to contest election and become part of the MC because of the persisting mess in the Society’s accounts.

Only dishonest people whose eyes are on making easy money become MC office bearers and oppose all attempts to get Society financial records investigated by the authorities. The MC members also boast about their connections with the politicians, police, and authorities – indicating that no action can be taken against their frauds.

Shockingly, that may be true. Despite their visible malpractices, the RCS office has refused to take action against the MC members. The RCS office is working hand in glove with the MC members to the extent that it has shelved even a CVC-directed inquiry against the DPS Housing Society MC members for unspecified reasons.

The inquiry was ordered by the Directorate of Vigilance of Delhi Government – under CVC’s direction. As the RCS officials have been secretly protecting the MC members, they were also the target of the inquiry. Although the RCS office had formally initiated the inquiry against the MC members, it was suddenly stopped without giving any reason.

CVC Inquiry Letter References:

RCS: F.47/Coop./1350/GH/SW/2011/7051 dated 4.5.2011
Directorate of Vigilance: F.27/2/2011/DOV/1080 dated 15.2.2011 forwarded by CVC
CVC: O.M. No. 1716/10/8/104428 dated 01.10.2010 and O.M. No. 1716/10/8/117161 dated 24.01.2011

While all the details of the CVC-directed inquiry should be available on the RCS website as well as the DPS Housing Society’s website, these are missing from both the sites.

As the MC of the DPS Housing Society is working in a totally dictatorial manner, it is using the Society website to propagate only its own interests while it does not upload the important communications including objections from other members on the website.

Meanwhile, the RCS office has intended to hold an investigation under Section 61 of DCS Act 2003 into the “financial and other irregularities”at the DPS CGHS.

But this planned investigation is meaningless because the RCS office has not dismissed the MC members who are misusing their positions to interfere in the investigations and intimidate key witnesses.

Now – after the labour rights violation case – it is expected that the RCS office will discharge its duties honestly and immediately dissolve the present DPS Housing Society MC so that the investigations could be held in a fair, unhindered manner.

Case Objectives

  1. To get full compensation for the security guards whose services were arbitrarily terminated by the DPS Housing Society managing committee (MC) members who are personally responsible for this act.
  2. To get the charges framed and legal proceedings started against all the accused MC members and their accomplices so that they could be caught and punished.
  3. To get an immediate stay / restraining order against the present DPS Housing Society managing committee (MC), prohibiting it from taking any decision and carrying out any work in the Society.
  4. To get the present managing committee (MC) dismissed through the office of Registrar Cooperative Societies (RCS) of Delhi Government.
  5. To get a government administrator appointed through RCS office for investigating the past and ongoing corrupt practices by the successive MCs of the Society. This should also include a Special Audit of Society’s accounts right from its inception, as the estimated corruption money runs into crores of rupees.
  6. To get the prosecution started and charges framed against the guilty MC members (past and present) and their internal and external accomplices under Labour Laws, Human Rights Laws, Prevention of Corruption Act, Consumer Protection Act, Indian Penal Code (IPC), the Benami Transactions (Prohibition) Act, and other legislations which are aimed to protect human rights and reduce corruption.
  7. The government and law-enforcement agencies must order the arrest and custodial interrogation of the past and present MC members of DPS Housing Society in order to know the extent of crimes.
  8. To get an inquiry instituted against the government officials who have failed to take any action in the DPS Housing Society case despite repeated complaints and multiple directions from the higher authorities.
  9. Similarly, to get an inquiry instituted against the government officials who may help the MC of DPS CGHS in future, as it will be construed as a case of complicity or connivance in crime.
