Bangalore, May 8: DLF Limited is in trouble with the Bruhat Bangalore Mahangara Palike (BBMP) over a new 18-storey complex, named Westend Heights, at New Town, DLF BTM Extension, in South Bangalore.
The state owned authority that passes all residential projects in Bangalore has realeased in public announcement that the project has not been approved by BBMP and therefore advised the public to refrain from booking these apartments. BBMP also said that in the DLF Limited ad the building projection consists of 18 floors and not four floors as stated.
“While the BDA is the competent authority to approve development plans in the BBMP limits, the BBMP is the only competent authority to approve building plans within its jurisdiction. The developer/promoter, mentioning that they have obtained sanction of building up to four floors from the BDA, is thus misleading," the statement read.
However DLF has clarified that it has obtained due approval for the development plan through its subsidiary company, Annabel Builders and Developers, for S+4 level from BDA. The company further said that construction will begin only after obtaining detailed plan approval from BBMP and other relevant clearances.
