GURGAON: The office of the District Town Planner (Enforcement) has sent a second notice to 17 owners of EWS houses in Sector 54 for illegal constructions in the area.

The move comes after TOI reported on November 23 that residents of the sector were filing a PIL demanding action against the violators.

The notice states that any alteration/addition made in EWS houses at ground, first or second floor is a non-compoundable violation, as it has been done without any approval from the competent authority. The notice is issued under Sub Section (2) of Section 10 of the Haryana Development and Regulation of Urban Areas Act, 1975.

This is the second notice issued by DTP (enforcement) to the owners. "We issued a notice to all 17 owners on October 29. We have sent them a notice once again, as the issue has been highlighted by a few individuals and the newspapers," said Sanjeev Mann, the district town planner.

When asked about the action that can be taken against the owners, Mann said, "If they don't restore the building to its approved state within a week, an FIR will be lodged against the violators and unapproved floors will be sealed." He added the concerned police station has already been informedabout the illegal activity.

Illegal construction in houses for EWS (Economically Weaker Section) in Sector 54 is widespread. As per the law, EWS houses can only be built up to two-and-a-half floors. However, over 90% EWS houses in the area have a third or fourth floor.

TOI highlighted the issue after a few residents decided to file a PIL (Public Interest Litigation) against the illegal construction in high court. "I am happy that the DTP has taken a prompt action and issued notices to house owners. It will, however, not affect our decision. We will go ahead and file the PIL in the court," said Harish, one of the petitioners.
