The Madras High Court has expressed concern over people selling the property allotted to them by Tamil Nadu Slum Clearance Board (TNSCB) to third parties and directed the authority to amend the rules of agreement to ensure that such activity does not continue.
“This court has come across several instances where the allottees had sold the properties to the third parties. As the place is meant for poor, they cannot sell it to third parties,” said Justice S Vaidyanathan. “The object of the allotment itself is defeated, if sold within a short span of time and thereby the allottees occupy the original place in slums.”

Justice Vaidyanathan said this in an order on a writ petition filed by S Michel Sugirtha that  sought directives to ensure the Chennai Metropolitan Development Authority (CMDA) stopped interfering with the petitioner’s “peaceful possession and enjoyment of her property comprising house, ground and premises” at Koyambedu.The court dismissed her plea on December 4 as being one that did not merit relief as the judge said that she was an encroacher in the area identified by government for giving allotment to hut dwellers.

Therefore you may better rethink about buying such properties.

It is better to avoid purchase of such property.
