GURUGRAM: The department of town and country planning (DTCP) has issued directions to officials of its planning wing not to issue occupation certificate (OCs) to residential properties where owners have constructed four-storey buildings without prior approval of the building plan.
According to DTCP officials, many residential plot owners have constructed four-storey buildings whereas they got approval for only two floors. They constructed stilt plus four floors hoping that they would get the building plan revised later, but with the recent restrictions on four floors announced by the state government, additional construction is now illegal.
Sources claimed that many property owners are approaching officials to regularise the additional construction by depositing a fee and getting the revised plan approved as per previous norms. Such property owners are in a fix about the future of their building, as some of them have accepted token amounts from buyers.
