Demolition of fresh un-authorized Constructions/Alterations


Chandigarh, 5th September 2019: The Chandigarh Housing Board demolished two fresh un-authorized constructions in Sector-40 today. One more fresh un-authorised construction in another flat was also scheduled for demolition today but the demolition was taken by the allottee himself prior to the exercise of the CHB.

So far the Enforcement Squad of the Chandigarh Housing Board has identified 168 fresh un-authorized Constructions/Alterations and on the site challans have been issued. Action taken in such cases is as under:

• 39 structures have already been demolished in Sector-45, Dadumajra, Sector-56, Maloya, Modern Housing Complex Manjimajra and Sector-40.  CHB has issued demand notice for cost of demolitions in 23 cases. In remaining cases demand notice for cost of demolitions will be issued shortly.  The allotttees have been given 10 days time to pay the demand. In case any of the allottee fail to pay the demolition cost, their allotments are liable to be cancelled.

• In 17 cases, the allottees have removed the violations themselves.

• In 13 cases, the violations have been regularized under Need Based Changes.

• In remaining cases, the violations will be demolished in next few days at the risk & cost of the allottees.  Though required pre-cautions are taken during the demolition but there is possibility that adjoining structures may get damaged and the alloteee will be responsible for such extra damage to own or adjoining units.

Here it is again informed that the Enforcement Squad is making daily inspections in all the sectors to identify fresh violations/alternations. On the Spot challans are being issued by the Enforcement Squad with the direction to immediately stop further construction and remove the same.
