My Father was working in Chandigarh Municipal Corporation and in May'1995 he was allotted with a Govt owned accomodation. Rent and Maintenance Charges were getting deducted from the Salary. Water and Electricity bills we have to pay by ourselves since the both Utility connections were on my Father's name We have taken the NDC from Electricity and Water Supply department where our Zero Dues were pending and submitted it to the Municipal Corporation after retirement. My Father retired in January 2022 and after that We are constantly following up with Concerned members of Municipal Corporation for NDC of Govt Accommodation because without this they will not pay Gratuity. Now Suddenly they are saying We don't have record of some specific years and in return of this you have to pay 25000 Rupees as Dues. Without paying 25000 NDC of House will not be given and Hence No Gratuity No official notice or Dues descripttion is received by us till now.
My Request is Do we have any legal standing in this case, if yes then how could we process Some Key points which I thought was 1. Since House rent was supposed to be deducted by Department, Do My Father have any fault here 2. If record is not found by Department, then is it our fault or We are supposed to Re-pay the money
