No relief for 15m unauthorised construction in Master Plan: Maken
New Delhi, Aug 25 (UNI) Union Minister of State for Urban Development Ajay Maken today said buildings with more than 15m of unauthorised construction and those above four storeys would not get relief under the New Master Plan.
In the wake of the Supreme court order staying some provisions of the Delhi Laws (Special Provisions) Act, 2006, Mr Maken said any commercial activities in 'A' and 'B' category areas of Delhi would not be allowed under the new Master Plan, which was likely to be implemented by early next month.
Addressing a delegation of MCD councillors Mr Maken said interests of those from the poor as well as the middle class sections would be protected under the Master Plan as commercial establishments set up by these people earning them their bread and butter.
Assuring the councillors included Leader of the MCD House Jitender Kochar and Standing Committee Chairman Jaikishen Sharma. Mr Maken said the Government was fully aware of the situation arising out of the August 10 Supreme court order and every attempt would be made to protect the interests of the people from the poor and middle class of Delhi under the new Master Plan.
''However, unauthorised constructions by the big fish would not be tolerated,''he said.
The minister said the DDA was considering nearly 200 objections and suggestions recieved from people of the national capital on proposed modifications in the Master Plan 2021 and the entire process was expected to be completed by early next month.
Denying any contradictions between the government notification of the Delhi Laws (Special Provisions) Act, 2006, the opinion of the RWAs and the court order, Mr Maken said,'' The Court order, the stand taken by the Resident Wefare associations and the Government notification are in agreement that more than 15 m of unauthorised construction and more than four storeys should not be allowed.''
