PMC Sets Six-Month Dead­line To Le­gal­ize Unau­tho­rized Con­struc­tions

Citadel - - FLASHBACK -

Own­ers of il­le­gal prop­er­ties in the city will be able to get them reg­u­larised till July, ac­cord­ing to the new state gov­ern­ment di­rec­tive. The Pune Mu­nic­i­pal Cor­po­ra­tion (PMC) has started ac­cept­ing pro­pos­als. The cor­po­ra­tion has given six months’ time for sub­mit­ting ap­pli­ca­tions to com­pound il­le­gal build­ings. The State Ur­ban De­vel­op­ment Depart­ment in Oc­to­ber 2017 had is­sued rules to reg­u­larise il­le­gal struc­tures on pay­ment of a penalty. Il­le­gal con­struc­tions done be­fore De­cem­ber 31, 2015, in res­i­den­tial, com­mer­cial and in­dus­trial zones would be con­sid­ered de­clared as ‘com­pounded struc­ture’ on pay­ment of com­pound­ing charges. Ac­cord­ing to the state’s guide­lines, struc­tures would not face the dan­ger of de­mo­li­tion once the own­ers or res­i­dents pay the charges. No new de­vel­op­ment would be per­mit­ted in such struc­tures, though. Only main­te­nance works would be al­lowed. Re­con­struc­tion or re­de­vel­op­ment will be al­lowed, only if the pre­vail­ing reg­u­la­tions per­mit it. The no­ti­fi­ca­tion states that if an unau­tho­rized con­struc­tion is on a land re­served for pub­lic pur­poses, it will be con­sid­ered for reg­u­lar­iza­tion, pro­vided the ur­ban lo­cal body shifts the reser­va­tion to another plot or deletes it. The en­tity seek­ing reg­u­lar­iza­tion will need to pay the costs in­volved.
