Who is responsible for regulating development in Haryana?

Postby webmaster » Sun Feb 10, 2013 12:03 pm

The Department of Town and Country Planning, Haryana, is responsible for regulating the development and checking the haphazard development in and around towns in accordance with the provisions of the following statutes:

  • The Punjab Scheduled Roads and Controlled Areas Restriction of Unregulated Development Act, 1963
  • The Haryana Development and Regulation of Urban Areas Act, 1975
  • The Punjab New (Capital) Periphery Control Act, 1952

In order to involve the private sector in the process of urban development, the department grants licences to the private colonisers for development of residential, commercial, industrial and IT park/cyber park colonies in accordance with the provisions of the Haryana Development and Regulation of Urban Areas Act, 1975 and rules framed thereunder.

Parameters for grant of licence

The different parameters for each category of colony are:

Residential plotted colony:

  • The plotable area/saleable area in a plotted colony cannot exceed more than 55% of the area of the colony (inclusive of 4% commercial area for need of the residents of the colony) and remaining area is to be utilised for planning of roads, community buildings like schools, hospitals, utility buildings/sites and open spaces
  • The coloniser is required to provide for community building sites in accordance with the norms approved for the purpose. These norms are population based and are arrived at by taking into account the designated densities as envisaged in the development plan proposals. The minimum width of the road is 12 metre.
  • Almost 20% of the plots are to be reserved for EWS housing with a minimum plot size of 50 square metre
  • As many as 25% of the total plots are to be allotted under the category of no profits no loss plots (NPNL) ie at the rate prescribed by the director. The size of these plots is between 125 square metre to 225 square metre
  • The population to be achieved in the colony cannot exceed beyond the designated densities in the development plan.

Group housing

  • The group housing site is governed by the zoning regulations approved by the director
  • The ground coverage in the group housing project is 35% of the site area and the floor area ratio (FAR) is 175
  • The maximum habitable height in a group housing complex is 60 metre
  • The group housing project should not exceed 20% of the sector area
  • The community facilities are to be provided in accordance with the norms approved by the department and are based on the population to be achieved as per proposed density of the group housing complexes which ranges from 100 to 400 persons per acre
  • Provide convenient shopping within the group housing complex 0.5% of the site area can be utilised towards convenient shopping. These are single storey with a maximum height of 4 metre
  • As many as 15% of the total number of flats are reserved for EWS and 10% of the main dwelling units is required for service apartments ie for domestic help
  • The minimum two-level basement for parking and services with a compulsory provision of one car space for every flat of the group housing complexes (except EWS) is allowed

Note: The Haryana Apartment Ownership Act does not recognise the concept of super area

“Home, the spot of earth supremely blest,

A dearer, sweeter spot than all the rest”.
English poet, Robert Montgomery, expressed a serene fondness for his home in the 1800’s and this same sentiment is still shared by millions of homeowners and most importantly by the new dreamers for many generations.Our homes are truly “a dearer, sweeter spot than all the rest.” They are a heaven from life’s turmoil and demands, a resting place and our safe harbor. However, for many, the dream of owning a home has been shattered at the hands of so called reputed builders who, happen to be self acclaimed powerful lobby. Most of the times they refuse to listen and care about the concerns of their own buyers; they follow and keep doing what they think right that too with force. In that case, the buyers feel helpless, even scared to take any action against them. therefore, it is made out that they are not there to help fulfill the dreams of the buyers but to help fulfill their own i.e. making immense profits at the cost of anything and everything. So long as their concern does not involve the woes of the buyers, everything appears normal. But the moment the buyers find themselves trapped, a never ending saga of grief and despair starts.

In past times, the projects of Greater Noida West and other NCR regions have turned up to be the above narrated story. Almost all the builders have indulged in grabbing the hard earned money (khoon pasine ki kamai) of thousands of buyers on this or that count.What adds more to the woes of the buyers is the fact that there is no authority which can be approached in such cases. therefore, no one is to listen and understand the genuine problems of the buyers.NEFOWA has been running from pillar to post to help protect he concerns of thousands of buyers of Greater Noida West and has been raising the issues by reporting to Govt. officials, political leaders etc. Everybody so reported, however, has just to console the buyers. No one has to come concrete. there is no Act, no Regulation to curb the frivolous callous attitude of the builders or at least to make them accountable towards the issues and concerns of buyers.

A delegation of NEFOWA met Mr.Ajay Maken,Minister of Housing and Poverty Alleviation, Govt. of India in December 2012 and pressed for its demand of getting the much promised and awaited Regulatory Bill in this regard passed in Parliament in this winter session itself but to no avail despite assurances.
NEFOWA, however, would not fear and sit quite, rather it will fight for the causes of innocent buyers who are always hopeful of an amicable solution having their own concerns involved.

In its continuous fight of rights NEFOWA is organizing a protest "Dharna" at Jantar-Mantar on 24th February (Sunday) from 10 AM. NEFOWA requests all home buyers and those who dream for own home, join this protest with family.

We also request all buyers group of NCR to join this event and give strength to home buyer's voice.
