GURGAON: After repeated complaints on violations in building norms, the department of town and country planning (DTCP) on Monday constituted teams to check 30 residential properties in licensed colonies where owners have carried out illegal construction after procuring occupation certificates (OCs).
The list of properties was prepared on the basis of inputs provided by the field staff. Teams will visit and check the violations and initiate action against the offenders.
District town planner (enforcement) Manish Yadav said the enforcement wing is in action mode to clamp down on illegal construction being done indiscriminately in the residential colonies by property owners who procured occupation certificates. “For this, teams have been formed and a list of 30 houses has been prepared and handed over to the teams for site inspection in the first round,” he said.
Last week, senior town planner (STP) Renuka Singh gave instructions to DTP(E) that many OC related complaints are being received regarding illegal construction and it needs further investigation. In November last year, the department had empowered architects to grant OC to residential houses on individual plots within license residential plotted colonies in Haryana under self certification scheme.
As per the DTCP guidelines, any architect registered with the Council of Architecture (CoA) can issue an occupation certificate for a property after going through all concerned documents. Within three days of issuing the OC, a physical copy of the application along with documents has to be submitted to the department for record. The order further said that there may be chances that architects are not following the professional ethics in issuance of occupation certificate under self certification therefore the concerned DTP in all the districts will be liable to check 10% of total OCsreceived from architects.
During the checks, if violations are detected or the building is found to be incomplete the concern DTP can issue show cause notice and if required blacklist the concerned architects and even withdraw the OC and register FIR. The department may also make recommendations to the registration authority for not registering any floor/building of such architects.
