DTCP to renew sealing of illegal commercial establishments
Gurugram: The department of town and country planning (DTCP) has ordered a survey of the entire Golf Course Road stretch to check the status of all the buildings which fall under residential category but have carried out commercial activities.
Officials have been directed to start the survey submit the status report within a week.
On Thursday, senior town planner Sudhir Chauhan directed district town planners (DTPs) of planning and enforcement wings to carry out a survey of buildings on the service lanes on both sides of Golf Course Road and submit the ground report to the department on whether the building has been issued occupation certificate or not and the purpose for which it is being used.
Earlier this month, the DTCP team cancelled the OCs of 100 houses in DLF, Sushant Lok and Palam Vihar after it found that their owners had violated sanctioned
In May, the planning wing of DTCP had cancelled the OCs of 38 residential buildings on Golf Course Road and in Sushant Lok 1 after a team of officials found that illegal commercial activities were going on in those properties.
The move followed a survey of the houses that got OCs since January this year under the self-certification scheme.
As per rules, commercial activities are not allowed in residential areas, be it licensed colonies that come under DTCP or plots in sectors falling under Haryana Shahari Vikas Pradhikaran (HSVP).
Recently a complaint was sent to the Department of Town and Country Planning (DTCP) by the Resident Welfare Association of DLF Phase -2 that has stated there are over 159 houses that are allowing commercial activities to take place in their premises.
In one of the action initiated by the public agency a notice was sent to one of the owners in Saraswati Kunj that was running a hotel in his house.
The chaos and conflict that can take place with a delayed action were experienced last year in Beverly Park situated along the MG road.
The public agencies literally clashed with residents of Beverly Park who prevented the public personnel to demolish the commercial structure in their area.
