The department of town and country planning (DTCP) wrote to police commissioner Kala Ramachandran, seeking to register an FIR against the developer of Malibu Towne — Malibu Estate Pvt Limited — for unauthorised construction and encroachment.
According to DTCP, the developer carried out unauthorised construction in the club building and encroached on the park area. District town planner (enforcement) Manish Yadav, in his letter to the police chief, sought registration of an FIR and action against the builder and any associates who were part of the illegal act.
The builder could not be reached for his comment. TOI has a copy of DTCP letter to the commissioner of police.
The DTCP office issued a show cause notice under section 10 (2) of the Act in October 2022 and further restoration orders were passed in March 2023 in respect to addition/alteration and unauthorised construction in the building of the club at Maple Drive in Malibu Towne. Another notice was issued in January 2023 for encroachment in the park area and restoration order was issued in February 2023. However, the developer submitted its reply which was found to be unsatisfactory.
As per Section 3B of the Act, no person shall direct or redirect buildings in the colony, save in accordance with the approved plan and subject to such restrictions in conditions as contained in the licence or as may be specified by the government or the director.
