HC land hurdle for 4 builders

( 0 Votes )


GURGAON: The Punjab and Haryana high court has directed the department of town and country planning (DTCP) not to issue licences allowing change of land use (CLU) to four private firms for their group housing projects in Gurgaon.

The order was passed by a division bench of justices Surya Kant and Surinder Gupta on October 3 after Pawan Bhatia, a Delhi-based businessman, filed a petition alleging the DTCP had favoured these builders. The bench issued notices to the four companies – Commander Realtor, Mahamaya Exports, High Responsible and Anant Raj Industries – DTCP and the Haryana government. They must respond before February 19, the date of the next hearing. Bhatia alleged his CLU application was rejected but those from the four firms accepted despite ” deficiencies”.

The petitioner has also raised questions over the proceedings for land acquisition by the state government. “In case a landowner refuses to tow the said lines, the application submitted by him is rejected by citing some frivolous reason,” alleged the petitioner.

The petitioner’s counsel advocate Puneet Bali submitted that the malicious intent and scandalous proportions in the grant of CLU licences could well be understood from the fact that 90% of the licences were granted to top 12 builders in the past five years.
