The enforcement wing of the department of town and country planning has given developers in the city time till January 5 to submit documents regarding sale of independent floors before 2009 in violation of zoning regulations in the state at the time.
District town planner Sanjeev Mann said that after the December 2 order to prepare a list of all such properties in the city, he had met with developers of Unitech, DLF, Ardee City, Malibu Towne, Mayfield Gardens among others.
“The developers have asked for extra time to submit the documents of properties that fall in this category, saying that documents will have to be dug up. Though some even asked for an extension of two months, January 5, 2015, will be the last date to furnish all records,” said Mann.
Mann said that if the developers do not submit the documents in time, the department would initiate penal action against them. The developers of Malibu Towne on Sohna road were served a second show-cause notice on December 19 as they refused to comply with the orders. “If they fail to respond to the notice within seven days, FIRs against the developer may also be filed,” Mann said.
He said that after the government did away with the norm against sale of independent floors in 2009, it had issued an order citing that a composition fee of Rs 250 per sq foot will be levied for area covered on all floors. However, a large number of developers had defaulted on the payment which resulted in loss of revenue to the state exchequer.
