GURUGRAM: Government corporations have not reduced business activities from residential buildings on Golf Course Road, notwithstanding repeated lawsuits. As per norms, business sports are not allowed in residential regions, be it colonies — which come under DTCP or plots in sectors — falling beneath HSVP (previously Huda). The companies are also failing to check industrial properties coming up on the stretch-marked as a residential area — flouting all norms and causing sales losses to the state exchequer that run into several crores. Sources said there are over 20 residential homes.
After procuring occupation certificates, the developers made modifications inside the systems to start business sports that consist of gyms, salons, showrooms, clinics, academic institutes, and many others. Not most effective are the property owners not worried about government norms; they may be openly defying them, hinting at a nexus with officials, said the source. “The enforcement wing of DTCP, chargeable for taking movement towards such sports, has not minimized these activities. These homes, permitted for residential purposes, which are strolling industrial establishments, are setting extra load at the infrastructure, causing inconvenience to other residents,” stated a DLF 1 resident.
The stretch has seen a mushrooming of business institutions after Rapid Metro rail services were inaugurated approximately years ago, which has led to property charges shooting through the roof in these regions. A local real property agent said, “A 500 squared plot here can fetch around Rs 20-25 crore. The investor can earn accurate rentals by leasing them out with commercial sports.
In May last year, TOI had suggested that around one hundred small and huge shops had come up illegally on 33 plots in DLF 1, amid the confusion that components of the place become demarcated commercial. DTCP officers had then assured that notices could be sent to such residences for violations and a few sellers for spreading rumors that the department had permitted industrial activities at a stretch. There are 29 plots in Lane 14, 14 properties in Lane 16 of DLF 1, and lots of greater in Sectors 27, 28, 42, and 43, wherein owners have advanced business residences.
When TOI spoke to the proprietors of several of these, they stated local belongings sellers had instructed them that parts of Golf Course Road were declared commercial zones.
Director K M Pandurang told TOI that DTCP would take strict action against violators. Not only will they be served clean notices, but a team of officials can even visit the area to check for violations. “We’ll bring illegal business activities in the region underneath manipulates,” stated Pandurang. Regarding the alleged nexus among officials and property proprietors, he said he’d inquire to see if the allegations are actual, find out in whose tenure(s) this can have occurred, and provoke movement against them sooner or later.
