It has been a month since the officials were told to submit the final list. Only Zone C officials have come up with a list of four hotels where violations were found. The rest of the zones are yet to conduct the survey.
In 2015, activist Rohit Sabharwal had raked up the matter of irregularities in hotels. Following his complaint, the MC building branch came out with a list of 109 erring hotels in 2017. After the two-year-long survey, the activist had filed a petition in the Punjab and Haryana high court in 2018, saying no action was taken. The matter is still pending in the court.
MC commissioner Pardeep Sabharwal had recently asked the officials to update the list. In September, the officials identified 102 more hotels, besides the earlier 109, but no status report was submitted about the nature of violations there and action taken against the violators.
The officials were given two reminders to check if any other erring hotel is pending, but they are yet to act on it.
MC head draftsman Rajkumar said, “We have sent a reminder to the officials concerned for submitting the report. Only Zone C has submitted its report of four hotels.”
