Developer ‘submits Forged Papers’, Dtcp Seeks Fir, Real Estate News, ET RealEstate

GURUGRAM: The department of town and country planning (DTCP) has ordered its officials not to process any licence application or approval for a city-based developer and its subsidiary companies and directors, who are allegedly submitting forged documents to the department.

In an order issued by DTCP director general TL Satyaprakash on Tuesday, the department has also recommended an FIR against Mahira Homes Pvt Ltd, its directors, associate companies, authorised signatory and the architect who submitted the forged plans to GMDA for two project licences. Last year, former DTCP chief KM Pandurang had blacklisted the developer for submitting forged bank guarantees to the department.

Despite repeated attempts by TOI, the developer couldn’t be reached.

The developer was granted licences for the development of an affordable group housing colony in Sector 88B last year. The building plan for the parent licence to develop the project over 6.7 acres was approved on May 10 last year. Mahira then sought another licence for the project for the development of another 3.3 acres. The building plan of the additional licence was to be approved by DTCP’s building plan approval committee (BPAC) in a meeting on April 11 this year. But the panel didn’t sanction the plan due to irregularities, according to officials.

Mahira, however, allegedly submitted forged and fabricated building plans with the signatures of BPAC members to GMDA. On the basis of the fake plans, the GMDA chief engineer (infra-2 division) earlier this year recommended service plan estimates for the entire 10-acre project without ascertaining whether the papers had actually been sanctioned. After DTCP came to know about the forgery, it recommended the filing of an FIR.

In his order, DTCP chief Satyaprakash said despite blacklisting, the developer neither improved its conduct nor stopped its wrong practices.

“The developer had earlier submitted forged bank guarantees for other licences and was blacklisted by the department on May 9 last year,” he said.

In the order, he said the department has suspended the licences issued to Mahira for the Sector 88B project under Section 3(3A) of Haryana Development and Regulation of Urban Areas Act, 1975. It has also issued a show-cause notice directing the developer to file a reply within seven days, failing which further action regarding cancellation of licence shall be initiated in accordance with the norms, officials said.
