The Deputy Chief Minister, during an interview expressed a view that there is a proposal to STOP the construction of Apartments for 5 years, it is applicable for the legitimate builders, who are coming up or building apartment complex by complying all the rules and regulations, but for majority of scrupulous and fraud builders, who construct apartments in 30 feet X 40 feet, 40 feet x 60 feet and 50 feet x 80 feet sites in revenue areas, converted lands and everywhere, do not require any sanctions or plans.
At the same time, there are financial institutions, funding such illegal activities, the scrupulous builders thrive with the assistance and help of these financial institutions and sell the illegal flats to the buyers. Majority of the buyers are very well aware of what they are buying. They are not ignorant. They need some space to live in and are not bothered about the sanctions, laws, plans and compliance.
All these illegal activities are very well supported by local goons and politicians and sometimes, financed by the mafia cartel.
In such a scenario, stopping or banning the legitimate constructions does not make any sense.
If the Government is serious, it must BAN OR STOP the illegal constructions.
1). The Town Planning Department, Engineering Department and Revenue Departments must take severe penal action of illegal constructions.
2). Block the funds flow or finance from these financial institutions, automatically, the illegal constructions will come down.
3). Stop the power, water supply and do not allow for the septic tanks to be built or provide sanitary connections to illegal building.
4). Do not issue B Form for these illegal buildings.
5). Cancel the B forms issued to all buildings which have violated sanctioned building plans.
6). Permit only one vehicle per family, who have the financial capability and financial credit worthy to own a vehicle and permits must be given only for those, who have parking slots or parking area.
7). Penalise footpath parking.
8). MOST IMPORTANT.
STOP PROVIDING FINANCE FOR ALL AND THE SUNDRY IN THE NAME OF ARTIFICIAL DEVELOPMENT.
a. Only genuine cases must be issued permits to buy the vehicles.
b. Only genuine and capable individuals must be provided with bank loans to buy vehicles.
Automatically, illegal constructions will come down, Genuine activity will begin. Traffic management will be easy.
THERE WILL NOT BE ANY BAN ON THE CONSTRUCTIONS. SO NEED NOT WORRY.
