Proposal To Register Additional Floor Approved; Over 600 HUDA Plot Owners To Benefit
Those who have bought plots in the legal colonies of Gurgaon and were planning to extend up to a fourth floor can heave a sigh of relief. The Haryana Urban Development Authority (HUDA) may now allow you to register the fourth floor.
Previously, the restriction on construction was till three floors. In February 2017, such owners could go for a fourth floor as well. However, the Directorate of Town & Country Planning, Haryana, in March 2018 said that fourth floors could not be registered. This angered those who had built the extra floor in order to sell it as an independent unit.
The latest development suggests that Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar has cleared the proposal to allow the construction and registration as an independent structure. “The government had allowed construction of a fourth floor, but disallowed its registration. Property owners have been demanding this be allowed. So I’ve directed concerned officials to allow registration,” the CM was reported as saying in Times of India. The state government will now have to work around to accommodate the new announcement. The move will benefit about 600 owners who had built the fourth floor in their plots. This number is expected to go up to 1,000 as more and more interested beneficiaries raise the structures.
Ever since the amendment, residential sectors witnessed a surge in demand and sale of plots. Brighter sales scenario helped developers consider building the fourth floor given a chance to earn more. With the CM’s announcement recently, demand for plots may be on the rise.
At the same time, those who had unlawfully registered illegal construction previously would be taken to task including those government officials who were hand in glove said SDM Sanjiv Singhla.
