President and her extended family eyes for grabbing A1 defence land

President had eyes set on classified A1 defence land

If new revelations are anything to go by, there is more than what meets the eye behind the allotment of two bungalows for the construction of President Pratibha Patil’s post-retirement home at Khadki in Pune.
First, informed sources in the Defence Estate Office of the Pune-based Southern Command, have revealed that the two plots where bungalows
number 38 and 26-A were located, are on plots of land which have been classified as “A1 defence land” which should be “in active occupation of the forces and allied services” and the where civilians should not be allowed to undertake construction.
In essence, it is surprising why Army Commander of the Southern Command Lt Gen AK Singh, under whose jurisdiction the Military Engineering Services (MES) undertook the construction of the President’s new bungalow on two plots of land, did not raise any objection to locating the civilian residential structure on plots of land classified as “A1 defence land”.
