Department pulled up for issuing layout plans without RERA nod

Chandigarh, January 30

The Punjab Real Estate Regulatory Authority (RERA) has pulled up the Local Government Department for issuing partial completion and layout plans without approval to projects by the authority.

Earlier, builders would get plans sanctioned for a row of units by showing each as a separate unit, whereas in reality, they were part of a larger project.

As a result, the department had banned passing maps of these buildings categorised as “ground plus two floors” and “stilt plus three floors” on July 2, 2019. Stilt plus three floors mean the ground floor will be meant for parking. But later, the department framed new rules and made RERA registration mandatory.

Now, the Urban Local Bodies have to ensure there is no violation of building bylaws and the builder must obtain change of land use (CLU) and licence for the purpose. There should not be any violation of RERA and the layout plan must be approved by the competent authority before the construction of such independent floors. RERA has pointed that partial completion and layout plans of two projects in Zirakpur were approved by Local Government officials. A communication has been sent to the Local Government by NS Kang, chairman, RERA. — TNS
