NEW DELHI: Realty firm DLF Ltd today said it had taken all the required approvals for the development of housing project at Kochi and would take appropriate measures after reading the full order of Kerala High Court.

The company was reacting to the Kerala High Court's order yesterday directing it to demolish certain portions of its apartment complex, constructed on the banks of Chilavanoor backwaters in Kochi in violation of Coastal Regulation Zone (CRZ) norms.

Justice A V Ramakrishna Pillai issued the direction while disposing of a petition by one A V Antony of Kochi against the construction alleging that there was violation of CRZ norms.

Responding to the order, India's largest realty firm DLF said in a filing to the BSE, that "the company awaits the full text of the Order so as to get a detailed understanding of the matter after which it will take appropriate remedial measures in consultation with its legal counsel".

The company's arm, DLF Home Developers has just been made aware of the Order passed yesterday by single bench of High Court regarding its 'Riverside Project' at Chilavanoor, Vyttila, Cochin, the filing added.

Stating that the company is highly compliance oriented and takes all necessary approvals very seriously, DLF said: "In case of 'Riverside' project also, all required approvals like Building Permit, NOC from Pollution Control Board, Fire & Rescue Department, Naval Airport and also final orders of Environment cum CRZ clearance have been taken".

DLF asserted that it has not "committed any violations", and that its actions have been consistent with various approvals that have been obtained by due application of proper process, and as have been endorsed by concerned authorities in various forums from time to time.
