PATNA: The Patna Municipal Corporation (PMC) has decided to demolish illegal parts of three buildings within a month. PMC commissioner Kuldip Narayan pronounced the order on Thursday after hearing vigilance cases against illegal highrise buildings in the city.

The buildings belong to Sunil Kumar Kanodiya, Asha Devi and Shashi Bhushan Prasad. Kanodiya's building is located on Exhibition Road. It is 19.95 metres tall and is B+G+5. However, the road facing the building is only 20 feet wide. As per the law, a building of that height should have at least 40 feet wide road.

The order said as per the approved building plan, there should have been only four floors besides the basement and ground floor. The fifth floor, the staircase at the setback area and a storeroom in the basement were declared illegal. The hall constructed on the ground floor was also declared illegal.

Asha Devi's building is located on East Boring Canal Road. The Jamuna Awas Apartment had the approved plan for B+G+3. However, the owner constructed three extra floors, making it 23 metres high against 14.95 metres approved. Its facing road is less than 20 feet. The extra three floors will be demolished. The construction in the basement has also been declared illegal.

Prasad's building is at P&T Colony in S K Nagar. It had an approved plan for G+3 with 11 metres height. However, the building is 14.96 metres high on a less than 20 feet wide road. Also, there is a construction on the fourth floor which has been declared illegal.

The commissioner has also ordered that in case the owners fail to demolish the encroaching projections and the illegal parts, the PMC will demolish them and the owners will have to pay the cost.
