GURUGRAM: The developer of Malibu Towne and five other companies have been booked for unauthorised construction and encroachment. Last month, the department of town and country planning (DTCP) had written to police commissioner Kala Ramachandran urging her to register an FIR against the companies.

According to DTCP, the developer, Malibu Estate Pvt Limited, carried out unauthorised construction in the club building and encroached on the park area of Malibu Towne.

The builder could not be reached for a comment despite repeated attempts.

District town planner (enforcement) Manish Yadav, in his letter to the police chief, had sought registration of an FIR and action against the builder and any associates who were part of the illegal act. The FIR was recently filed against Malibu Estate and its subsidiary firms Dinero Estate, Casa Estate, Sanpedro Estate, Geoid Estate and Santaluna Estate under sections 10(2) and 3 of the Haryana Development and Regulation of Urban Areas Act, 1975 (a copy is with TOI).

The alleged crime came to light after a resident filed a complaint alleging that the land belonged to the residents, but the builder encroached upon the land and then carried out construction.

Yadav said the change in the club’s building plan without permission from the department is a violation of the 1975 Act. “On the basis of the complaint, an FIR has been lodged against the builder. Police are carrying out an investigation and DTCP will provide all necessary documents and support to them,” he said.

The DTCP office issued a show-cause notice under Section 10 (2) of the Act in October 2022. Restoration orders were passed in March 2023 in respect to addition/alteration and unauthorised construction in the building of the club at Maple Drive in Malibu Towne. Another notice was issued in January 2023 for encroachment in the park area and restoration order was issued in February 2023. The developer submitted its reply, which was found to be unsatisfactory.

As per Section 3B of the Act, no person shall direct or redirect buildings in the colony, save in accordance with the approved plan and subject to such restrictions in conditions as contained in the licence or as may be specified by the government or the DTCP director.
