Patna: The Patna Municipal Corporation (PMC) court on Wednesday ordered demolition of illegal parts of four buildings in the city within a month.

The court ruled that the third and fourth floors besides the guardroom and lavatory of Chandra Shraddha Apartment at Buddha Colony near Hospito India were in violation of the building bylaws. It is a 15.56 metres tall G+4 structure but the road facing the building is less than six metres wide. As per the norms, a building taller than 11 metres should at least face six metres wide road. Despite inquiry team's repeated orders to produce a copy of the building plan, the developer did not respond.

The fifth floor of another apartment under construction in Buddha Colony and owned by Usha Devi has been declared illegal. Being built by Ravindra Kumar, the prescribed height of the building was 14.95 metres as it faces 8 metres wide road, but the G+4 structure is 17.80m high. There is also deviation in its construction. Also, the developers didn't have NOC from the Airports Authority of India. The court has ordered construction of a boundary wall around the building after leaving a desirable patch of the road for the purpose of its widening. The court said the PMC will approve the building plan if it follows the bylaws and the illegal parts are demolished. If its orders are not complied with, the entire building will be considered illegal.

The fourth floor of another G+4 structure at Nehru Nagar has been declared illegal for being more than 15 metres high. The building is owned by one Sudha Gupta and faces only 4.25 metres wide road.

Parts of another building on a residential plot at S K Nagar, owned by Birendra Kumar Singh, have been considered illegal. The structure is 17.37 metres high against the approved height of 11.58 metres. Also, a clinic, Hospital Shreni, is running in the building despite the plot meant for residential purposes. Instead of a parking area, rooms have been created in the basement. The court declared the third and fourth floors and the rooms in the basement illegal and ordered for their demolition. It has also ordered the removal of the clinic.

The PMC commissioner also ordered if the owners failed to demolish the encroaching projections and the illegal parts, the PMC would take the initiative and the cost incurred on demolition would be charged from the landowners.
