Early Times Report
Jammu, Feb 8: The slackness of Municipal Committee Rajouri can be gauged from the fact that it has totally failed to stop illegal constructions, which are being carried out across the town.
Sources told Early Times that building permissions are being issued by Municipal Committee in sheer violations of by- laws which are clearly visible from the constructions, which are taking place in the town.
“As per rules, there is permission of construction of maximum two floors including ground floor and two more floors over it but people have constructed 6-7 storey building and the concerned department see to be in deep slumber, which shows that it deliberately doesn’t take action due to exchange of commission,” they said.
They further said that there are many schools in the town which has multi-storey buildings despite the fact that construction can’t be raised to up to two floors but violation of building permission has been done. Even Enforcement agency of the MC Rajouri never takes action against such offenders. The maps of buildings permission are cleared in lieu of huge commission, sources said.
“A thorough inquiry should be conducted in those cases, in which building permissions were issued in violation of nor as it can cause huge disaster in case of natural calamities,” said the locals of Rajouri.
EO MC Rajouri, Kasturi Lal, when contacted said that whenever action is taken by department against such violators, they bring court stay order, which make them helpless.
