Unauthorised Colonies: Punjab notifies Revised Policy

Illegal Colony PunChandigarh, Aug 21, 2013 (YP Bureau)

The Punjab Government today notified the Revised Policy to regularize unauthorized colonies/constructions/buildings in the unauthorized colonies for one time regularization. The revised policy would only approve the unapproved colonies/buildings constructed before April 1, 2013.

According to an Official Spokesperson, the Policy has been framed with the objectives including to bring all unauthorized colonies/buildings into planning framework and to regularize the development, facilitating implementation of Master Plan’s land uses, improving the circulation pattern of streets/roads, providing basic amenities to residents/plot holders of these area besides making provisions to compound offences made under the relevant acts.

The policy envisages compulsory application for regularization by developers of unauthorized colonies/owners of plots/buildings for compounding/regularization of layout/plots within 45 days of notification of this policy.

The colonies have been categorized into three groups including where 65 percent area has been sold, where 35 to 65 percent area has been sold and where less than 35 percent area has been sold. The composition fee for regularization of unauthorized colony constructed before 17-08-2007 would be 0.5 % of collector rate as on 01-04-2013 subject to minimum of Rs. 25000 and maximum of Rs. 1 lakh per acre. For unauthorized colonies constructed after 17-08-2007, the fee would be 2 % of collector rate subject to minimum of Rs. 1 lakh and maximum of Rs. 5 lakh per acre.  To facilitate the public 10 % of total composition fee would be realized along with application, 15% within one month of application and 75 % in three equal six monthly installments along with 12% interest. A rebate of 5 % would be allowed if composition fee is paid in lump sum at the time of application. The new policy has slashed regularization charges especially for the small plot holders and poor giving major relief to all sections of the society.

Note:

*    The industrial plots/ buildings shall be charged at half the rates as fixed for residential plot/ buildings in the above table and institutional plot/ buildings shall be charged at par with residential plots/ buildings.

*    The plot size as mentioned in the registered sale deed or full and final payment agreement on stamp paper shall be considered for levying regularization charges even if the plots is owned jointly by more than one owner, i.e., the rates will not be calculated according to the share of the co-owners in registered sale deed or agreement, rather this calculation will be done on area transaction involved in the sale deed/ agreement.

*    The composition fee/ regularization charges on buildings shall be charged proportionately to the use of the building, i.e., as per the percentage of area used for residential, commercial, institutional use shall be charged accordingly.

*    In addition to regularization charges for plots the composition fee on unauthorized buildings shall be charged as under:
    
i) Residential              Rs 12.50/- per sq ft of covered area

ii) Other buildings       Rs 25.00/- per sq ft of covered area

*    Regularization charges and composition fee on buildings only shall be retained by the Department of Local Government, Punjab, if the site falls within municipal limits and by the concerned Development Authority, if the site falls outside MC limits.

*    In case of illegal colonies, where building plans have already been approved by the Competent Authority or where NOC has been issued after receiving EDC/ SIF in that case, the regularization charges as mentioned in the above tables shall not be charged.

But for future, to have strict control on the development of unauthorized colonies and building activity the stringent legal provisions are being made which provide seven years imprisonment and with a fine which may extend to Rupees five lakhs on conviction of the Colonizer of an unauthorized colony. Under the proposed provisions, unauthorized buildings in an unauthorized colony shall not be sanctioned water supply, sewer or electric connection, no Registrar or Sub–Registrar shall register their sale deed or any other document regarding the sale of that plot or building besides the building shall be liable for demolition.
