Former Maharashtra Revenue Secretary Ramesh Kumar said he had highlighted alleged irregularities about Lavasa Hill city project near Pune in a report in 2010.
According to him, Krishna Valley Development Corporation had leased out a sizable portion of government and gram panchayat land for Lavasa project on a lease for 30 years at Rs 3.28 lakh per year.
Besides, the company building the project had also bought land from about 100 tribals allegedly without following due procedure, Kumar said.
Asked whether he felt victimised since he was not given posting in the Maharashtra Administrative Tribunal after retirement, he said he would not like to comment on it.
Earlier in the day, Industries Minister Narayan Rane, who had earlier held Revenue portfolio, said he had acted on Kumar's report by recommending disciplinary action against officials who did not follow due procedure regarding tribal land.
