Rogue buildings face axe

Jamshedpur Notified Area Committee (JNAC) has decided to act tough on unauthorised constructions, which have ignored its regularisation fiat despite repeated reminders.

A fortnightís deadline to explain the delay in submitting applications will be issued individually to more than 300 errant builders/owners by next week, failing which the civic body will be prompted to demolish all structures that do not follow approved plans.

Acting on the Jharkhand Regularisation of Unauthorised/Deviated Constructions through Compounding in Urban Areas Ordinance, which was promulgated on May 9, 2011, the JNAC had ordered regularisation of all buildings constructed in deviation of sanctioned blueprint in lieu of a token penalty.

Between May and June, it conducted a survey and found 340-odd residential and commercial complexes violating their approved plans. By July 31 this year, only 40 applications were received. On August 8, the JNAC issued a fresh deadline of November 8, but response was dismal again.

Special officer R.N. Dwivedi said showcause notices would be served within five days

He conceded that there might be several other buildings that were fully unauthorised, but yet had not figured in the short survey owing to manpower crunch.
