Ut Plan To Hike Charges To Face Cabinet Test, Real Estate News, ET RealEstate

CHANDIGARH: The approval of the Union cabinet for an increase in the building misuse charges is imminent, with the UT administration and ministry of home affairs (MHA) finalising the ‘cabinet note’ on the issue.

“After back and forth exchange of information and queries, spanning more than a year, on the proposed amendments in the Capital of Punjab (Development and Regulation) Act, 1952, the administration has now sent a final cabinet note on the issue to the MHA, which will be submitted before the cabinet,” an official said.

After the cabinet consent, the proposed amendments will be put before the Parliament for its approval.

The administration in June last year had submitted a proposal with the MHA to increase building violation and misuse penalty for violations from Rs 500 to Rs 1 lakh. The fine amount was also proposed to be increased from existing Rs 20 to Rs 4,000 for each day of contravention once the offence is proved.

The changes in the penalties warrant an amendment to the Capital of Punjab (Development & Regulation), Act, 1952, which in turn requires the cabinet approval and finally a stamp of the Parliament on the proposals.

“The administration once empowered after the amendments will be able to formulate rules specifying varying penalties for the nature of misuse and violations in different types of properties,” said an official.
