Khukri Eco Park Converted to High Rise Scam posing a Security Risk

Adarsh Co-operative Housing Society
Land was under uninterrupted in continuous possession of the Army for over 40 years. The said plot was a garden known as ‘Khukri Eco Park’ with 135 grown up trees and was under the management of local military authorities. The GOC M&G Area Maj Gen B A Cariappa inaugurated the said park on 27th October, 1996 on the Infantry Day. The park was surrounded by a wall constructed by the Military Engineering Services and the same was adjacent and contiguous to other Army units located in the Zone VI. The said Eco Park continued to remain under control and management of Army till 2004 where army personnel were detailed round the clock regularly for guarding it like any other army establishment.

The land was abandoned by the Army to be allotted to Adarsh Co-operative Housing Society by a conspiracy hatched by senior serving officers, bureaucrats, politicians and officers of Defence Estate. The conspiracy was hatched in the year 2000 when Maj Gen AR Kumar was the General Officer Commanding MG & G Area and Brig TK Kaul was the Sub Area Commander. Brig TK Kaul came back as GOC MG & G Area in November 2002. Since the year 2000, each of the Generals Officer Commanding, Maharashtra & Gujarat Area, Maj. Gen. A. R. Kumar, Maj Gen VS Yadav, Maj Gen TK Kaul, Maj Gen Tejinder Singh, Maj Gen RK Hooda, have become members of Adarsh Society for allotment of flat to them or their relatives as if it was a pre-requisite of the appointment of General Officer Commanding, Maharashtra & Gujarat Area and in return these General Officers remained silent on the conspiracy hatched even at the risk of the security hazard posed by construction of 30 storey building overlooking the sensitive defence area. Not only did they remain silent on this issue but provided immunity and protection to the Society in continuing their manipulation.

The 30 storeyed building constructed completely dominates the entire Army & Navy area and sensitive installations like Tata Institute of Fundamental Research. The building causes a security concerns of great magnitude in the longer run.

The Army and Navy in Mumbai are in great need of land to meet shortage of accommodation for its officers, JCOs, NCOs and Sepoys. Presently they are being made to share married accommodation. Sharing of married accommodation by more than one family has caused several social problems of privacy and illicit relationships.
