Dtcp Tightens Grip, 2 More Sr Officers In City To Check Violations, ET RealEstate

July 8, 2023

GURUGRAM: In a first, the department of town and country planning (DTCP) has deputed two district town planners in its enforcement wing in addition to the district town planner (enforcement) to check violations.

The two officials — Binesh Kumar, district town planner in Mewat, and Sumit Malik, district town planner of MCG — will be deputed to the enforcement wing initially for three months, an official said.

The department also assigned jurisdictions to the three officers for better functioning of the enforcement wing. While DTP (enforcement) Manish Yadav will monitor sectors 1 to 57 along with all licensed colonies, Kumar will be responsible for sectors 58 to 80, Sohna, and Gwalpahari. Meanwhile, sectors 81 to 115, Manesar, Pataudi, and Farrukhnagar will be under the supervision of Malik.

In the departmental order, director general of DTCP TL Satyaprakash said the step is taken keeping in view multiple functions of the enforcement wing, including curbing violations in the licensed colonies and also within the entire controlled areas and urban areas of the city.

Yadav will also be responsible for checking all violations pertaining to licensed colonies and change in land u(CLU) sites, the preparation of comprehensive reports and databases, NOCs pertaining to urban areas, court matters, RTI, and complaints, along with the regularisation of colonies.

Kumar and Malik will be responsible for detection, notices, and demolition drives regarding violations pertaining to controlled and urban areas in their respective jurisdictions. They will also deal with applications pertaining to CLU, building plans, and occupation certificates, apart from court matters, RTIs, and complaints, the order said.

Gurgaon is spread over 1,400 square kilometres, and the staff strength of DTCP is insufficient to prevent illegal colonies, illegal construction, encroachment, and unauthorised commercial activities. The department is contesting over 200 cases related to land disputes and other issues falling under its jurisdiction, with some of these cases in the Supreme Court and Punjab and Haryana high court.

“Most of the time, the enforcement wing officials are representing the department’s view in the cases, which takes a toll on their enforcement responsibilities. This in turn results in the mushrooming of illegal colonies and encroachments in the city,” said a senior official requesting anonymity.
