Illegal construction

  • 2 Answers
  • 243 Views

We lived in a old house at our own property, but at present I have broken my house for reconstruction in shot place (420 sq feet). The building plan is not possible in this situated area. In this situation Pujali Municipality noticed to me through Police to stop the illegal and unauthorized construction on the same. I have appealed to Chairman to solve this matter consulting with ward councillor, but she is not agreeing to solve in this matter. Have any solution on this matter? I look forward to hearing from you at your earliest convenience. Thanking You,

Sir,

As you already know, each and every building construction plan needs to be approved by the government before it can be constructed in reality. Although it is your land, prior approval of the building plan is a mandatory requirement. If such approval is not granted, one cannot proceed towards its construction. If anyone, disregarding the non-permission continues with the same plan, the government has the right to demolish the same construction after obtaining a court order, which will be easy to obtain.

In your case also, until the plan is sanctioned and approved, you cannot proceed with the construction. If you do so, it will be illegal and thus liable to legal actions. Unfortunately, there exist no other solution to your problem unless you get the approval of the government. However, if you feel that you are genuinely not granted permission for no rationed reason, you can challenge the decision in the Court.
