CBD BE­LA­PUR: Even as the antien­croach­ment depart­ment is curb­ing il­le­gal­i­ties in the city, fol­low­ing the or­ders of mu­nic­i­pal com­mis­sioner Tukaram Mundhe, two petrol pumps at Be­la­pur were sealed on Thurs­day by NMMC.

Both es­tab­lish­ments are ac­cused of not hav­ing oc­cu­pancy cer­tifi­cate and yet start­ing their busi­ness.

Dur­ing his ‘Walk with the com­mis­sioner’ ini­tia­tive’ at sec­tor 15 of CBD Be­la­pur, Mundhe had re­ceived a pe­ti­tion fol­low­ing which he had asked the town plan­ning depart­ment of the civic body to check on the petrol pumps.

The depart­ment con­ducted tech­ni­cal in­spec­tion of the three petrol pumps.

The Bharat Petroleum Cor­po­ra­tion petrol pump in sec­tor 15 of Be­la­pur sit­u­ated on plot num­ber 2, it was found had been given com­mence­ment cer­tifi­cate in 2011. How­ever, de­spite not get­ting the oc­cu­pancy cer­tifi­cate, busi­ness at started at the petrol pump.

Sim­i­larly the In­dian Oil Cor­po­ra­tion Ltd. petrol pump at plot num­ber 8 in sec­tor 29 of Be­la­pur had re­ceived con­struc­tion per­mis­sion in 1993. It too had not taken the oc­cu­pancy cer­tifi­cate and started busi­ness.

Both the prop­erty hold­ers had been given 24 hour no­tice on June 15 to stop com­mer­cial use by Be­la­pur ward of­fice.

Since the no­tice was not com­plied with, by the prop­erty hold­ers, the petrol pumps were sealed on the or­ders of the mu­nic­i­pal com­mis­sioner.

The ac­tion was car­ried out un­der the guid­ance of ad­di­tional com­mis­sioner Ankush Cha­van by deputy mu­nic­i­pal com­mis­sioner (anti-en­croach­ment) Sub­hash In­gle and other top NMMC of­fi­cials in the pres­ence of the po­lice of­fi­cials.
