Jaipur. Udaipur House, spread over 12 thousand square meters, located in Civil Lines, Delhi, will now be returned to the Rajasthan Government soon.
Previously it was the residence of the Maharaja of Udaipur. But after independence, this property came to be part of the Rajasthan government. It is currently under the possession of the Delhi government. Recently, the Supreme Court had directed both governments to settle the dispute with consent. In a meeting held between representatives of the two governments on Friday, it was agreed to administer Rajasthan. Chief Secretary DB Gupta attended the meeting on behalf of Rajasthan. Now Delhi government will present consent to vacate Udaipur House and hand it over to Rajasthan in next hearing to be held in Supreme Court on August 5.
CS DB Gupta told that after independence, Rajasthan had rented Udaipur House to Delhi government. The Delhi government stopped paying rent after 1965. After that the paperwork continued but the solution was not found. Now there has been a mutual agreement between the two governments on the directions of the Supreme Court. Gupta said that the Rajasthan government had given the Delhi government the option of giving the land of the same price elsewhere in exchange for it, but the agreement could not be reached due to the bottleneck of the Green Tribunal.
In 2010, Ashok Gehlot, who was the Chief Minister in the then government, had talked to the Delhi government for the return of Udaipur House to Rajasthan. But then the Delhi government did not agree to it. After this, the Vasundhara government could not take Udaipur House but like it, it had taken the prized Bikaner House in its possession.
