Those allotted stalls at Dimapur by the previous DMC under the name and style of DMC Allotees Welfare Committee Monday expressed total opposition to the legal draft agreement prepared by the DMC Advisory Committee.
At a hurriedly convened press meet, the newly formed DMC Allottees Welfare Committee said they contested the new legal document as it superseded the agreement made during the tenure of the previous DMC. Maintaining that the present advisory committee did not have necessary powers to issue such legal documents, the allottees also questioned the validity of the notice as it was issued by one of the DMC advisors. Further, the allottees also questioned the powers and functions of the DMC chief advisor. They said the government order appointing advisors did not contain any designation as “chief advisor” but only as advisors.
It may be mentioned the DMC Advisory Committee decided to lease out spaces for construction of stalls to be supervised by the DMC and adjusted with rent.
The issues contested by the allottees were on certain terms and conditions incorporated in the legal agreement and the fee fixed at Rs. 1500. IT was pointed out that during the tenure of the previous DMC no legal agreement was signed except certain terms and conditions authorized by the then chairperson of the DMC. The allottees had also submitted a memorandum objecting to the draft agreement to the CEO of the DMC. When contacted, some members of the DMC Advisory Committee said former DMC members allotted most of the shops to themselves. They also said the previous agreement itself clearly stated, that in the event of any dispute, the decision of the DMC shall be final and binding.
Chief Advisor DMC Advisory Committee Er Keditsu asserted that the DMC would go ahead with the deadline for signing the new agreement as planned and added that the Advisory Committee was only trying to streamline the entire process of allotment. He also added that the DMC Advisory Committee was not averse to meeting the allotees in this regard.
It may be mentioned that the deadline for New market area was on August 31, Millenium market, Durga Mandir and Old market area on September 15 and Hazi Park on September 30. The new draft agreement has been signed by the CEO and chief advisor DMC.
