In a move which is likely to benefit thousands of people who have brought plots in 15 colonies of Gurugram, the Haryana government has finally decided to regularize these colonies. Many of them have also constructed houses on these plots. These colonies are Cancon Enclave Part – I and II, Bheem Colony, Harinagar Extension, Part I and II, Shri Ram Colony, Devi Lal Extension, New Jyoti Park, Patel Nagar Extension, Shiv Nagar, Vikas Nagar, area in proximity to Tikri village, Ghasola village, Naherpur Rupa village, area in proximity to Jhadsa village Extension, Surat Nagar, Phase I Extension and area in proximity to village Harsaru.
Giving information on this decision, urban local bodies spokesperson said, “Civic facilities and infrastructure is lacking in these areas and the plot and building owners will have to fulfill the parameters as prescribed under policy mechanism within a period of six months. The owners who have already constructed their houses in these colonies are required to deposit building plan fee of Rs 10 per square metre and development fee of Rs 1,250 per square metre.”
He further said that the owners of vacant plots have to submit necessary documents and apply with a development fee of Rs 1,250 per square metre along with building plans. One the other hand, if the development fee is deposited in installments, only provisional approval of building plan will be given.
The urban body has also decided to take stern action on those who will not abide by these rules. He said that if the building plan approval for plots and buildings will not be applied within six months then they would be sealed and demolished.
