The PCNTDA i.e. Pimpri Chinchwad New Township Development Authority pushed the earlier set deadline for property regularization till February 2019.
Sadashiv Khade, the newly-elected president of the authority shared the news. The compounding charges will be levied on several illegal constructions in all including the residential, commercial and industrial zones to regularize them. According to an official, the owner of an illegal construction is required to get a stability certificate from a- licensed architect. The source also said that the deadline extension will benefit several residents of Pimpri Chinchwad as they now have more time to get their properties regularize.
Currently, there are more than 30,000 illegal constructions within the limits of Pimpari Chinchwad New Township Development Authority. Apart from regularizing more than 30,000 illegal constructions, the unauthorized constructions being done in the buffer zone, red zone, blue lines of rivers and on hill slopes will not be regularized by the authority.
The Maharashtra State Government’s urban development department had issued a notification to regularize the illegal constructions till December 31, 2015, under the Maharashtra Regional Town Planning (MRTP) Act in October 2017. But now the deadline for the same has been extended till February next year.
The owners of illegal construction are required to submit their complete details along with the survey and sector numbers under the PCNTDA limits. Also, the owners have to offer land free of charge to widen roads. The owners are required to seek the permission of PCNTDA [Pimpri Chinchwad New Township Development Authority] to carry out any new construction on the plot.
Also, it is mandatory for the owners to provide service lines, water supply and sewerage lines. Also, the owner can’t block a canal or any other water body passing by, an official said. Out of the 42 sectors the planned development is only carried out in1st to 32nd sectors. While quoting the PCNTDA chief, an official said that a total of 12.5% land will be reinstated for the reserved landowners within the Pimpri Chinchwad New Township Development Authority limits.
