The committee has also approached the SC seeking clarification on this. 

The Supreme Court-appointed committee to supervise the distribution of compensation has rejected the claims by Maradu apartment owners with multiple flats who sought Rs 25 lakh for each demolished dwelling. 

Meanwhile, the committee noted that if the SC issues a directive that the owners are entitled to get interim compensation of Rs 25 lakh for each flat, the committee will revisit this order and direct the release of the eligible amount to all the owners.

Nine owners, who owned multiple flats in the buildings demolished at Maradu on January 11 and 12, approached the committee seeking interim compensation of Rs 25 lakh for each flat they owned. The committee has also approached the SC seeking clarification on this. 

“The interim compensation is intended for rehabilitation. We (committee) think the said payment should be confined to Rs 25 lakh irrespective of the number of flats owned by a person. If the contention of the claimants is accepted, for the persons who own five flats, Rs 1.25 crore will have to be released for rehabilitation. We think, the same was not intended by the SC,” noted the committee.

The term of the three-member committee will expire on March 10. Meanwhile, the deadline set by the committee for owners to submit the documents sought in the proforma 3 expired on Tuesday. The owners had been asked to submit the proforma 3, along with the documents, for determining the balance amount, besides the compensation.
