DELHI: The city municipal corporation has sent a proposal to the state authorities asking them to allow sub-division of plots measuring less than 1,000 square metres at a nominal fee. At present, owners whose plot is lass than 1,000 square metres cannot further divide it.
According to a source, their have been some cases in the past where owners in connivance with MCG officials have managed to divide such plots and have got their building plan approved as well.
“Due to the clause that prohibits further division of plots, residents do it on the sly and that is why we want the state government to give us the permission so that we can officially divide such plots,” said an official.
Right now, there are around 77 applications pending who want to divide the plot so that they can sell them further. “We have proposed that we will collect a sub-division charge of around Rs 60 per square metre from those who want to divide their 1,000 square metre plot into further small portions,” the official added.
“Once this relief is granted to the residents, such cases where they are done illegally will come down. We hope the state authorities allow us to carry out these changes,” he said.
