No construction in Durgapur Ex-Servicemen’s Co-operative Housing Society Limited without formal approval: Calcutta HC

-

Kolkata, May 27 (ILNS) The Calcutta High Court has directed the Durgapur Ex-Servicemen’s Co-operative Housing Society Limited that no construction will be made in the premises without formal approval by the Durgapur Municipal Corporation and the Asansol Durgapur Development Authority.

Petitioner Binoy Majumder claimed to be a member of the Durgapur Ex-Servicemen’s Co-operative Housing Society Limited. His grievance is that the Co-operative Society is effecting construction without any sanction from either the Durgapur Municipal Corporation or the Asansol Durgapur Development Authority.

There is a letter dated March 6, 2021 issued by the Durgapur Municipal Corporation, holding that the construction by the respondent-Society is illegal and that a stop work notice has been issued.

S Chatterjee, Counsel for the Asansol Durgapur Development Authority, also submitted that the proceedings have been initiated and the Society as well and the parties, have been called for hearing.

After hearing the Counsel for the Society, a Single Bench of Justice Rajasekhar Mantha said that since the proceedings have already been initiated by the Asansol Durgapur Development Authority, the same may be concluded in accordance with law.

“In view of the order to stop work dated March 6, 2021 issued by the Durgapur Municipal Corporation, the Society shall not effect any construction whatsoever in the said premises without formal approval by the Durgapur Municipal Corporation and the Asansol Durgapur Development Authority”, the order read.

It was also clarified by the Court that this order shall not prevent the Durgapur Municipal Corporation from proceeding against the Society or any person for violation of any statute and in accordance thereof. ILNS/SHV/RJ
