Attention! Building law violators of Gurugram, the department of town and country planning (DTCP) has decided to take strict action on those property owners across the district, which were found to be violating the land use norms. According to sources, DTCP will write in this regard to the deputy commissioner, urging him to serve recovery notices to the property owners seeking expenses incurred by the agency.
A senior official from DTPC said that this is the first time such a recommendation is being made in the city. As many as 113 property owners across the district were found guilty of violating land use norms and now they will have to cough up the cost of demolition and sealing drives carried out by the department.
The official further said that cost of the action would be recovered from the owners who were found to be flouting the land use rules. Sources said that these properties are located in Sohna, DLF 2, Farrukhnagar, and Pataudi. The properties owe around Rs 29 lakh demolition cost to the town planning agency.
Amit Madholia, assistant town planner, Gurugram said, “The department has identified 113 properties on which action has been taken. However, the recovery of cost has not been made so far. We will now approach the district administration to record these in the land revenue documents until the dues are cleared. The district town planner (enforcement) will write to the deputy commissioner on Thursday seeking recovery of the expenses as the ‘arrears of land revenue’.”
Once the administration will approve this, a notice will be sent to these property owners asking to pay expenses. The registrar will then collect the arrears from the defaulters. Till the time, the whole money is not recovered owners can’t sell their property to anyone else.
