The city corporation is likely to crack down on two major residential complexes for allegedly violating the building plan after it was approved.
Godrej Woodmans Estate and RMZ Latitude (both at Hebbal) are staring at uncertainty after BBMP commissioner M Lakshminarayana told the city council on Friday that he would cancel the building plan if the allegation of violation turns out to be true.
His statement came in the reply of former deputy mayor S Harish’s allegation. Harish said the builders of these apartments either fabricated the building plan or lowered the site elevation to gain maximum height clearance. He said the Palike had neither approved these changes nor claimed any betterment charges towards incorporating the changes.
To this, the BBMP chief assured the council that he would ask the builders to submit documents, after going through which he would cancel the building plan if violations are detected.
Another case of violation was brought to the notice of the council when former opposition leader MK Gunasekhar spoke about encroachment of a stretch of road near Poornima theatre. He said that earlier, the road was dividing two houses. He said someone bought the houses and built a huge building on the land, gobbling up the road too.
He said he had submitted all the documents to the Palike, but its babus approved the building plan and issued khata certificate instead of taking action. The BBMP chief took note of the case and said he would get the construction stopped and cancel the khata and the construction plan.
