The HC has also ordered that if Savitri Jindal does not vacate the premises within 15 days, eviction proceedings be started against her and completed within six months. Savitri Jindal, the Congress MLA from Hisar, was allotted a palatial government house in Chandigarh's Sector 7 in 2005, when she was made a cabinet minister. However, she did not leave the accommodation after losing the cabinet berth in 2009 and has overstayed for over three years.
Directions to initiate eviction proceedings under Public Premises (Eviction of Unauthorized Occupants) Act, 1971, were given by Acting Chief Justice Jasbir Singh and Justice R K Jain while hearing a petition against illegal and forcible occupation of houses by some VVIPs in the city.
Savitri Jindal also owes Rs 90 lakh as penal rent for staying in the house from November 22, 2009 till date -- the period she was not legally entitled to occupy the accommodation. The penal rent was calculated by Haryana government and presented in the HC during a hearing of the case.
Savitri Jindal had topped Forbes magazine's list of richest Indian women in 2012 with a net worth of $8,200 million.
She became the chairperson after her husband, O. P. Jindal, died in a helicopter crash in 2005.
Savitri Jindal's fortune fell $3.3 billion over the past year and is down $5.6 billion in two years as the OP Jindal Group, steel and power conglomerate founded by her late husband, which she chairs, faced another tough year. Youngest son Naveen who runs Jindal Steel & Power, family's biggest asset, faced flak when a government auditor charged that the company had unfairly secured coal mines from the government. He denied any wrongdoing saying the mines were allocated on merit but its shares have fallen 35% nonetheless. After conducting a sting operation against reporters from fellow billionaire Subhash Chandra's broadcaster Zee, he accused them of blackmailing him by demanding advertisements in exchange for favorable coverage. Shares of JSW Steel, run by son Sajjan, fell when it announced plans to merge with JSW Ispat, a company it had acquired from Lakshmi Mittal's younger brother in 2010.
