Jalandhar, November 19
The municipal company sealed an illegal multi-story building on Ladowali Road on Wednesday. A team from the MC’s building branch, led by ATP Rajinder Sharma, sealed the entire building. Previously, an upper floor of the building had been sealed by the authorities concerned.
Two weeks ago, La Tribune had highlighted gross irregularities in the said structure.
Complaint Kuldip Singh alleged a violation of building regulations and massive corruption in a complaint submitted to the MC on October 23.
He alleged that the illegal commercial building was constructed in violation of the laws of the Department of Local Agencies. He also marked the complaint with the Chief Justice (High Court of Punjab and Haryana); Lokpal; Chief Minister; Vigilance office; Minister of Territorial Communities and Principal Secretary.
Kuldip alleged that âCentral Townâ was being built without getting Land Use Change (ULC) and parking in the back and front. He said the building was being constructed in total disregard of the floor area ratio (FRA) in collusion with MC officials.
The complainant mentioned that the multi-storey building was under construction after filing false documents and plans. He alleged that the builder caused massive losses to the Treasury.
Kuldip said: âBuilding ownership, registry, CLU, front and rear parking areas, FRA and height approval should be reviewed. “
