Gurugram: Property owners carrying out illegal construction may lose OC

Unauthorized construction and building plan modifications can soon lose their occupation certificates (OCs). A team from the DTCP will visit the properties a month after the issue of the OCs and examine them to assess if the construction plans have been implemented by the owners. The Department of Town and Country Planning (DTCP) has confirmed that buildings of licensed colonies given OCs will be inspected for property owners to check whether they have adhered or not to the original building plan.

The FAR of plots measuring 300 metres (264 percent) and 240 percent in large plots increased last year by DTCP. The Department has recently allowed a guardroom and a toilet to be installed in the stilt area, which used to be one of the most frequent violations. The Association of Gurgaon Home Developers and Plot Owners, which initially made demands for increased FARs, had pledged it would monitor the unauthorized building but failed to avoid any violations.

Now, approved building plan a must for property registry in Gautam Budh Nagar

In the absence of an approved building plan or letter of no opposition from the authority concerned for registration of any house, individuals shall send an approved building plan. Similarly, officials shall not proceed without verifying the structure status with the local authority for registering a unit in a building with more than four floors.

Moreover, during property registration, both categories are expected to mention the overall number of floors of a building, as well as the height. After the 2018 twin building collapse in Shahberi, which claimed the lives of nine people, the clamor for improvements in the registration of residential, agriculture, business, institution, and commercial land intensified.

These are some of the guidelines for the Registry of Land under the jurisdiction of the three industrial development authorities notified by the district authorities to end unauthorized buildings in Gautam Budh Nagar. The goal is to ensure that properties built illegally are not registered in the area.
