Noida: In a major crackdown against misuse of residential property for commercial purposes, Noida Authority on Friday issued lease deed cancellation notices to six owners. These allottees continued to operate non-conforming units despite receiving notices from the Authority. A showcause notice has also been issued to another allottee for violating building plans and amalgamating two plots into one for commercial use.
Following the apex court’s directives on December 5, 2011, Noida Authority had formed a committee to take action against all allottees conducting non-conforming activity from their premises. After inspection of five sectors, the committee put 39 allottees on the black list. “We sent notices to these allottees and asked them to shut shop,” said Manoj Rai, OSD, Noida. “While 19 of these shut down activities, on 3 plots we found banks and clinics running, which we exempted from sealing,” Rai said.
The Authority then sent showcause notices to eight allottees. “These include properties in Sectors 39, 48 and 52,” Rai said. “Several allottees chose to ignore our directions. We have now decided to take action against three properties in Sector 14, two in Sector 30 and one in Sector 52. They have been issued lease deed cancellation notices and their premises will also face sealing besides the 5% penalty of the current sector rates for restoration,” Rai said.
The Authority also sent a showcause notice to another allottee in Sector 52 for violating building plans and bylaws and not seeking permission for amalgamation of two plots — B-1 and 2 — into one. “The allottee can do this only after seeking permission and paying a fee, which the property owner has not done,” Rai said. “Although the allottee has closed down the unauthorized guest house running from their property, he is likely to face action and penalty,” Rai added.
