Unauthorised construction after getting OC has emerged as a major challenge for the department in private developer colonies. The district town planner (DTP) of the enforcement wing, RS Batth, issued 100 notices for gross violations of building plans and OCs on Saturday. The department had received several complaints and recently carried out a detailed survey of the area.
“We have issued notices due to violation after OC. The plot owners have been given seven days’ time to reply. Thereafter, we will initiate action,” DTP Batth said, adding that people need to follow the rules and refrain from making unauthorised and illegal construction.
In February, the department had directed DLF to disconnect water and sewer connections of buildings with illegal construction. The developer was also directed to coordinate with the electricity department to disconnect power connections. The directions were issued after the department during a survey found that multi-storey buildings have been constructed on small plots allotted under economically weaker section (EWS) category in violation of norms in DLF areas along Golf Course Road.
Meanwhile, the department also issued notices to four illegal guesthouses in Uppal Southend.
“After receiving a complaint on the CM Window, a site inspection was carried out. It was found that guesthouses have been constructed illegally,” Batth said.
