Agency News

Chandigarh, Mar 8: Haryana Cabinet met under the chairmanship of Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar here today approved the proposal for regularization of illegal conversion from residential to commercial use in the colonies developed by Housing Board.

This decision is applicable for the colonies which stand transferred to the municipalities and situated in the area designated as commercial zone in the published Final Development Plan. The approach should be in accordance with the layout plan of the scheme. The property proposed to be regularized has not been sub-divided from its original size as per the approved layout plan of the scheme and no further sub-division of the property will be allowed.

The ground coverage, Floor Area Ratio (FAR) height of the building and parking etc. will be allowed in accordance with the Haryana Building Code (amended from time to time). Further, the building will be regularized in accordance with permission/compoundable limits as prescribed in the composition policy/Rules and the non-compoundable construction will be got demolished prior to grant of permission under this policy.

This will sort out the long pending litigation, giving relief to the public. Apart from this, the municipalities will also earn revenue by regularzing these illegal conversions. (UNI)
