Many of these flats and shops — in Dayanand Colony — have been sold and seven families have already moved into their houses. Construction of a section of the project was underway when a DTCP team visited the site on Wednesday.
The DTCP has now sent a notice to the developer, seeking a reply in seven days. District town planner (enforcement) RS Batth said they had received a complaint, alleging that an unauthorised colony was being constructed after dividing the land into small plots.
“The site was inspected on Wednesday and the allegations were found to be true. The land on which the project was being developed is on the revenue estate of Gurgaon village,” said Batth.
Taun Dua, the complainant, insisted that the buildings should be razed immediately. “The project has violated all the norms and has caused a huge loss to the government in terms of revenue,” he added.
This is the third such building violation to have come to the fore over the past few months. Two relatives of former Gurgaon MLA Umesh Aggarwal and the husband of current MCG councillor Sheetal Bagri were among 22 people who were issued showcause notices by the DTCP for allegedly constructing 130 flats in Sai Lane in violation of the Haryana Development and Regulation of Urban Areas Act.
Before that, 150 flats were constructed without any approval in Ansal Esencia Extension in Sector 67. Former councillor Gaje Singh Kablana, the husband of senior deputy mayor Pramila Kablana, and 20 others were booked for the violation.
