The Indian Navy today said it has submitted its report on the Adarsh Housing Society scam to the Defence Ministry.

The report along with the recommendations of the Navy for the future course of action has been sent to the Defence Ministry, Navy sources said here.

After ordering a probe into the issue, the Defence Ministry had sought reports on the controversy and its past background from the Army, Navy and the Defence Estates.

A controversy has erupted over how the Adarsh Society in upscale Colaba, originally meant to be a six-storey structure for housing Kargil war heroes and widows, was converted into a 31-storey building.

The high-rise is built on 6,450 sq metres within the Colaba naval area and was cleared on the condition of housing war veterans but now has 104 members, including former service chiefs, senior serving Army officials, a former Environment Minister, legislators and state bureaucrats.
