HT Es­tates has re­ceived sev­eral email com­plaints of de­mands made by some rev­enue of­fi­cials in Noida for R22,000 as fees for reg­is­ter­ing a GPA. Ac­cord­ing to an e-mail by Satish Gupta, “When I took my client to a sub-reg­is­trar’s of­fice for regis­tra­tion of GPA, my client was made to write an ap­pli­ca­tion to ADM (fi­nance) Noida and then was told to pay R22,000. The per­son in­formed us that this amount was the ‘fixed rate’ for a GPA regis­tra­tion here.”

When con­tacted, ADM (fi­nance) Bhag­wan Singh said, “I don’t give any ap­proval on any ap­pli­ca­tion for GPA. I have also heard about these prac­tices. We will en­quire into the is­sue.”

An ad­vo­cate in Noida al­leges that some of­fi­cials have marked days for reg­is­ter­ing the GPA reg­is­tra- tions. All GPA cases are sent to one depart­ment on Mon­day and the rest to other de­part­ments on Tues­days and Wed­nes­days . This is an in­ter­nal ar­range­ment for shar­ing the booty equally,” he al­leges.
