Fake Construction Firm DD Construction Booked For Illegally Collecting Money In Name Of PMAY
A fake construction firm in Delhi has been booked for illegally asking money from customers for allotting flats under the Prime Minister Awas Yojana (Urban). DD Construction Company allegedly also created a fake website pmayhousing.com, thereby allegedly violating the copyright held by the government.
The FIR was registered by the union ministry for housing and urban affairs at the South Avenue police station after it received several complaints against the firm. However, no arrests have been made so far. Police have served notice to the directors of the construction company, asking them to join the probe.
Undersecretary said the ministry has not given authority to any construction company to either implement or to collect money in the name of Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana (Urban).
One of the complainants, a resident of Laxmi Nagar, said the fake website was asking for money from people who are registering themselves for allotment of flats under the PMAY-U mission. The complainant had mailed and sent a handwritten complaint letter to Nirman Bhawan, which houses the Ministry.
The FIR has been registered under sections of impersonation, forgery of the Indian Penal Code and the Information Technology Act.
Pradhan Mantri Awas Yojana Urban (PMAY-U) for the urban poor is an initiative by Prime Minister in which affordable housing will be provided to the urban poor with a target of building 20 million affordable houses by March 31, 2022.
