The Apex court upheld the conviction of former Uttar Pradesh chief secretary Neera Yadav in Noida land allotment scam case and awarded two-year jail imprisonment.

Former IAS officer Rajiv Kumar gets two-year jail term as he has also been convicted in the scam.

A CBI court in Ghaziabad had convicted Yadav and Kumar in 2012 in the scam that took place between 1994 and 1995 and sentenced them to three years’ imprisonment.

Yadav was the CEO of Noida Authority at the time of scam and Kumar was her deputy.

The 1971 batch IAS officer, Yadav, who went on to become UP’s first woman chief secretary during the Samajwadi Party’s government in 2005, took voluntary retirement in 2008.

The CBI probe was ordered by the Supreme Court on a petition filed by one Noida Entrepreneurs Association in 1997.
