Bsl asks the eminent Bokaro school to release a 5,000 m² plot by August 29 | Ranchi News
Bokaro: The Inheritance Court bokaro Steel Limited (BSL) served an eviction notice on a major city school to vacate 5,000 sq m of land after its hearing concluded that the institute had encroached on the BSL land illegally.
BSL management pasted copies of the eviction notice on the perimeter walls and the main gate of the Chinmaya Vidyalayain Sector 5 of Bokaro Steel Township. The school operates on the eight acres of land donated by BSL to set up the institute.
On Friday, BSL’s head of communications, Manikant Dhan, said, “The school has illegally occupied 5,000 square meters of land, which is located on the side of the school playground. BSL management has ordered the school management to vacate the grounds by August 29. If not, an anti-encroachment campaign will be conducted and the structures on that land will be demolished. The school management will also be charged Rs 1 lakh.
The school administration did not respond to calls and messages from TOI for comment on the development until the time of the filing of this report.
Meanwhile, BSL management said Chinmaya Vidyalaya management requested additional land to build staff quarters through a written request in 1979. power supply handed over 5,000 square meters on April 1, 1980, on the condition that the school management submit plans and drawings of its quarters within 90 days of handover to allow for a lease agreement. “However, the school management never submitted the drawings,” a BSL official said.
The school management is said to have built sheds, steel gates and iron gates on the grounds, but not the staff quarters. It takes more than three dozen rental accommodations from BSL to house its staff.
The PSU then sent several reminders to the school, which did not respond. In 2009, a formal show cause notice was sent to the school but their response was not satisfactory. Eventually, BSL management canceled the land allocation on August 22, 2017 and asked the school to vacate it. “When the school failed to comply, a case was formally filed with probate court (a quasi-judicial body) the same year,” the official added.
