GURUGRAM: Acting on a complaint, the department of town and country planning (DTCP) has issued a show cause notice to the developer of Vatika India Next society for allegedly installing gates at the exit and entry points and allowing commercial outlets to operate within the residential area in clear violation of the approved layout and the licence terms and conditions.
As per DTCP guidelines, installing gates at entry and exit points in licenced colonies is illegal, if prior permission from a competent authority, as envisaged in the Haryana Development and Regulations of Urban Areas Act, 1975, are not taken.
On Wednesday, a team of officials visited the colony and noted violations throughout the society in sectors 82 and 83. Developer Vatika Ltd, maintenance agency SK Mehta of Enviro Rapid Response Service Centre and residents’ welfare association president of the Block E of the township, where the gates and commercial outlets have come up, were issued notices, district town planner (enforcement) Manish Yadav said.
“The offenders have contravened the provisions of Section 3B of the (Haryana Development and Regulations of Urban Areas) Act and the same is liable for penal action,” the notice reads. TOI has a copy of the notice.
The developer did not respond to queries sent by TOI.
The Vatika India Next was granted a licence under Section 3 of the Act 1975. Section 3B of the Act provides that no person shall erect or re-erect building(s) in a colony, save in accordance with the approved plans and subject to such restrictions and conditions as are contained in the licence or as may be specified by the government or the director.
Yadav told TOI that the developer has been directed to immediately remove the illegally installed gates and commercial outlets or appear in the DTCP office within seven days to show cause as to why legal action should not be initiated against them for violating the approved layout.
