Robert Vadra Got Profit of Rs 50.5 crore Illegally:Dhingara Commission

According to an English newspaper, the son-in-law of Congress President Sonia Gandhi had illegally got a profit of Rs 50.5 crore from a land deal.
New Delhi: The report of Dhingra Commission, formed by the Manohar Lal Khattar government of Haryana in 2015, has revealed that Robert Vadra, son-in-law of son-in-law of Congress President Sonia Gandhi, had made a profit of Rs 50.5 crore illegally from a land deal in Haryana in 2008, while he did not spend a single penny in that deal.

According to the English newspaper Economic Times, Vadra was negotiated to benefit the company. The Dhingra Commission was asked to investigate the license to change land use in four villages of Gurgaon. It also included a screening of the license given to Vadra's company Sky Light Hospitality Private Limited. The Commission submitted its report on August 31, 2016. The report of the commission was presented to the Supreme Court last week by the state government in a sealed envelope.
Replying to ET's questions in an e-mail, Vadra and lawyer of Skylight Hospitality, Suman Khetan said that Vadra and Skylight had not done any wrongdoing and did not violate any law. He also said that the entire price of land has been paid according to the market value and its income tax has also been given.

Constitutional Challenge to the Commission 

 Former Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda had given constitutional challenge to the formation of Dhingra Commission. Hooda had filed an application in the High Court alleging that some officials of the Haryana government leaked the Dhingra Commission report. The Punjab and Haryana High Courts have recorded the assurance that the report will not be published. Those who give information about the case say that a Haryana government official had testified before the Commission. He testified in the context of Skylight's real estate capabilities. The officer had said that Vadra is a very special person and in this connection he has the ability to make colony.

Irregularity in License 

According to the Economic Times, Dhingra report has given information of more than 20 properties which Vadra and his companies had purchased. One of these properties was purchased from Vadra's Skylite Hospitality Private Limited from Omkareshwar Properties. Later, its land use was changed and sold to DLF and thus got a profit of Rs 50.5 crore. The Commission has expressed doubts that the second land was bought from this profit. 
According to ET, after reviewing several land deals, it has been recommended in the report that land use licenses issued by the then Hooda government should be audited by an independent agency and cancellation of licenses given illegally.

Referring to the sources, ET said that after the deal was done by Omkareshwar Properties in favor of Skylight Hospitality, the company of Vadra made only Rs 50.5 crore on the basis of their name and no money was spent on it.
