PMRDA receives 500 applications for regularisation

The official said that the development charges for land is 0.5 % of land charges and 2% of built-up area as per the ready reckoned rates. The rates for these 566 structures were assessed and given permission for regularisation.

The Pune Metropolitan Region Development Authority (PMRDA) has received 566 applications for regularisation after over 7,000 structures were identified as illegal, said, officials.

These structures have come up for regularisation per the Development Control Regulations of PMRDA, 2018. “These structures were examined and decided to be regularised as per the rules after collecting regularisation charges. The regularisation charges are twice that of the development charges,” said an PMRDA official.

The official said that the development charges for land is 0.5 % of land charges and 2% of built-up area as per the ready reckoned rates. The rates for these 566 structures were assessed and given permission for regularisation.

Monica Singh, in-charge, illegal department wing, told TOI that according to the data of the last eight years, while 7,631 structures were identified as illegal constructions, only 566 have come up for regularisation. The department has already demolished 263 structures and 94 FIRs have been registered.

“These structures are regularised if they comply with the norms and pay penalties,” she added.

Of the structures that have been regularised, the maximum proposals have come from Haveli followed by Maval and Mulshi. The illegal structures identified by the authorities are either being regularised after following due process or they are pulled down and first information reports (FIRs) registered.

An official said due process has been followed by issuing notices under section 53 (1) of the Maharashtra Regional Town Planning Act. The official added that the structures are razed if the owners do not respond to the notices.
