Corporation Commissioner Anshul Mishra had warned late last week that the Corporation would take stringent action on cases of building rules violation.Parking space
The civic body and the planning authority wanted to prevent the violation that mostly pertained to parking space.Many owners/builders got building plans approved by earmarking parking space. But, the buildings came up with shops taking up parking space.In the case of the building sealed on Monday, structures for shops had been built in the basement meant for parking of vehicles. A portion of the basement itself was a violation as it extended to a point below the pavement along the road, Mr. Mishra said.
The Corporation took action only after serving a notice on the building owner two months ago, he said.The building was about to be inaugurated with a puja on Monday morning.Learning about this, teams from the Corporation rushed to the spot and vacated the people from the building.Officials from the civic body and also the Local Planning Authority sealed the building.Warning
“We first warned of action. Now, we are into taking it. This will be the fate of all the buildings that have been constructed in violation of rules,” the Commissioner said.
