TOI had recently reported about the registry of the illegal flats and power supply to these unauthorised colonies — one near Ansal Esencia in Sector 67 and another in Sai Lane colony of Sector 8 — pointing out a possible nexus between builders and officials of the departments concerned.
In a letter, district town planner (enforcement) RS Batth has sought an explanation from the tehsildars of Gurgaon and Badshapur about the registry of these illegal flats without the mandatory NOC from the DTCP and pulled up DHBVN’s superintendent engineers concerned for providing power supply to the two aunthorised colonies.
Batth wrote to the tehsildar of Badshapur: “The flat owners (some 150 of them in Sector 67) have obtained registries and submitted copies of their sale deeds. It has been found that the sale deeds have been executed initially between the companies and individuals by mentioning the said land as part of the licenced colony Ansal Esencia.”
On the electricity connection to the Sector 67 society, Batth said that preminiary probe has revealed that the local residents have obtained registries and power connection and they are also footing the required electricity bills. “I have sought a report from the superintending engineer of Circle II, DHBVN,” he said.
Similarly, in case of the 130 illegal flats in Sai Lane colony of Sector 8, the DTCP officials found that the sale deeds were executed initially between the Dev Samaj Trust and Indo UK E-services Company and thereafter individual sale deeds were carried out for the unauthorised colony.
