It has been alleged that the 14 industrial plots ranging from about 496 square metres to the size of 1280 square metres were allotted at throwaway prices after changes were made midway in the eligibility criteria.
Retd Justice S N Dhingra commission submitted its report this week to the Haryana government in which he had brought to light irregularities that were committed.
The commission had probed into the grant of the licenses for change in land use in four villages of Gurgaon, including license which was granted to the company which is owned by Robert Vadra who is son-in-law of Congress President Sonia Gandhi.
