GURUGRAM: The department of town and country planning (
) has said action will be taken against illegal structures in
1, 2 and 4. This comes after realty major DLF alleged that around 23 houses in the upscale areas of the city were built illegally.
The developer had written to the DTCP, deputy commissioner and MCG alleging that such constructions were done after getting occupation certificates (OC) from DTCP.
DLF, in five letters written between January 31 to February 6, provided a list of buildings with illegal constructions. They also filed a complaint against unauthorised constructions done by plot owners and provided a list of such plots as well.
“We would like to bring to your notice that some plot owners are illegally constructing their houses beyond the sanctioned plans,” DLF stated in its letter.
DLF alleged that after plot owners get OC from the DTCP, they make additional constructions violating the approved building plans. In some of the cases, buildings were allegedly constructed for residential purposes but later used for commercial practices.
“Such illegal constructions are a burden on the existing infrastructure like sewerage, roads and power supply of the colonies, thereby causing inconvenience to people living here,” said a resident of DLF 1. These buildings are used as guest houses and sometimes leased out to app-based services, the resident added.
District town planner (DTP) R S Batth said occupation certificates are given to only those buildings which are constructed as per the approved plans. “Department will inspect and issue notices to plot owners if additional construction was done after getting OC,” said Batth adding that action would be taken against the guilty.
