The Municipal Corporation of Gurugram (MCG) on Thursday announced that plots having an area of 100 square yards can be regularised.
The move comes at a time when the state government is trying to check mushrooming of illegal colonies.
MCG commissioner PC Meena said that earlier the regularisation and sub-division was allowed for plots with a minimum area of 200 sq yards, and now it has been changed to 100 sq yards.
“The state government recently issued a notification stating that sub-divided plots of 100 sq yards or more in area are eligible for regularisation. The applications for the regularisation of such sub-divided plots falling under the MCG limit will have to be submitted to the MCG commissioner. The owner of the plot will have to seek building plan approvals as per the provisions of the Haryana Building Code 2017. The front setback of the sub-divided plot should be as per the original plot,” said MCG commissioner.
Bringing in changes, urban local bodies department ordered that the minimum plot size eligible for regularisation and new sub-division will now be 100 square yards and above and the size of the sub-divided plot should not be less than 50 square yards.
“The applicant shall apply for regularisation of sub-divided/fresh subdivision of plot as per the prescribed format to the competent authority i.e. commissioner in case of municipal corporation and district municipal commissioner in case of municipal council and committees,” read the notification issued on January 3.
The district administration had also announced that the illegal colonies situated outside municipal areas in the city can now apply for regularisation by January 18 under the Haryana Management of Civic Amenities and Infrastructure Deficient Areas Outside Municipal Areas (Special Provisions) Act 2021. The application can be made by the developer or the RWA.
