Chandigarh, February 18
In yet another populist decision ahead of the Lok Sabha and the state assembly elections, the Hooda Government has unveiled a policy aimed at regularising thousands of illegal constructions in nine municipal corporations (MCs) — Gurgaon, Rohtak, Faridabad, Ambala, Panchkula, Karnal, Panipat, Hisar and Yamunanagar.

“The policy is aimed at checking the rampant problem of illegal constructions which have come up in violation of the zoning and building regulations within the MC limits over the years,” official sources said.

They said the composition fee for compounding of offences had been conveyed to MC Commissioners.

Under the new policy, Rs 20 per square feet (PSF) will be charged from the owners of the illegal constructions in the residential colonies for the constructions raised without approval of the building plans.

For the group housing societies, the penalty for this offence would be Rs 40 PSF while for the industrial buildings, it would be Rs 10 PSF. The penalty for raising a sanctionable construction without getting the revised plan approved would be Rs 10 PSF, an order of the Director, Urban Local Bodies, said.

The area added during the course of construction will invite a penalty Rs 10 PSF while the extra covered area beyond the permissible limit within the zoning line (up to a maximum of 5 per cent) will invite a fine Rs 200 PSF up to 2 per cent and Rs 800 PSF beyond 2 per cent.

For commercial sites, the constructions raised without getting building plan approved will attract a penalty of Rs 100 PSF. The sanctionable construction, which has been raised without getting the revised plan approved, will attract a penalty of Rs 40 PSF.

In case of excess area added during the construction, the penalty will be Rs 20 PSF. The excess area covered beyond the permissible limit, but within the zoning line (up to a maximum of 5 per cent) will be regularised after paying Rs 1,000 PSF up to 2 per cent and Rs 4,000 PSF beyond 2 per cent.

No stair winder will be allowed in the public buildings and group housing societies. Similarly, a reduction in the number of stairs, ramps and lifts as approved in the building plan would be a non-compoundable violation.

Meanwhile, the construction of roads and parking areas by the developers without the approval of a layout plan will be charged Rs 10 PSF of the metalled portion for residential, institutional, industrial and commercial buildings.
