Gurugram-based developer booked for setting up illegal colony without govt nod
A developer was booked on Wednesday for setting up an illegal colony covering over three acres in Ghamroj village following a complaint from the department of town and country planning (DTCP). The move is part of a drive against unplanned development in new sectors. After demolishing at least 23 structures in the illegal colony, DTCP on August 21 had written to police for filing an FIR against the land owner for developing a colony without necessary approvals from the government agency. On Wednesday, the FIR was registered against Mahesh Singh, a resident of Ghamroj village at the Bhondsi police station under sections 7A and 10 of Haryana Development and Regulation Of Urban Areas Act, 1975.
Ghamroj village falls within the urban area of Bhondsi as declared under Section 7A of Haryana Development and Regulation of Urban Areas Act, 1975, through notification dated December 2012. The land situated at khasra no. 98/14, 2/2, 9/1, 10/1,3/1, 4/1, 8 in Ghamroj village belongs to Mahesh Singh as per revenue documents. He carved out an unauthorized colony on the land in violation of rules. Assistant town planner (ATP) Amit Madholia said as per Section 3 of the Act, the land owner was required to get a licence from DTCP before carving out any colony within the notified area. “Sub division of the land and carrying out construction without due approvals from authorities are prohibited under the law,” said Madholia.
