GURUGRAM: The department of town and country planning (DTCP) has served notices to owners of 40 residential properties in Uppal Southend and South City 1 for unauthorised construction and illegal commercial activities.

The owners of these properties have not taken permission for running commercial activities, which lead to not only traffic congestion but overburdened infrastructure also.

The enforcement team is carrying out sealing and demolition drives against illegal commercial activities in licensed colonies. So far, more than 120 properties have been sealed for building violations.

In the notice, the district town planner of enforcement wing has directed the property owners to file their replies within seven days, failing which an action will be initiated against them.

“The department may recommend cancellation of occupation certificates, seal the property and direct revenue department not to execute sale or purchase deeds of the property,” said district town planner Manish Yadav.

The district town planner has so far issued notices to around 850 units in licensed colonies in a bid to tighten the noose on illegal commercial activities that are going on without mandatory permissions from competent authorities.

Following the action, more than 100 units have been sealed and dozens of activities were stopped after property owners received notices. “The sealing drive of the DTCP will be restarted within a day or two. The units against which written proceedings have been initiated and restoration order is completed will now be sealed,” Yadav said.

According to officials, illegal business activities are in violation of Haryana Urban Development Act 1975 and Haryana Building Code and Occupation Certificate rules. The department is receiving complaints through the CM’s window on a regular basis and action is being taken against violators, he said.

Yadav appealed to the people that permission for commercial activities can be taken from the department for some selected activities – up to 25% or 50 square metres of the total construction area of the ground floor in residential colonies.

These activities include running offices of property dealers, lawyers, chartered accountants, contractors, clinics, tax consultants, architects, town planners (without studios), company secretaries, ayurvedic and homeopaths, tourist guides, psychiatry clinics among others that fall under the no-nuisance category.
