Indian Real Estate News : Kolkata
KMC building rules
Source: The Times of India Aug 05, 2014
Get your facts corrected before you want to submit your building plan before the Kolkata Municipal Corporation for necessary sanction before you begin the construction. And donít plan to start construction before submitting your plans though the construction may be of minor nature.

Close on the heels of a Calcutta High Court order asking the KMC authorities to demolish all structures which have been illegally constructed majorly flouting the KMC building rules, the civic body building department officials are treading cautiously regarding regularizing illegal constructions. Though the KMC building department regularized against charging penalty hundreds of buildings, the owners or the developers of which were engaged in minor violations, now after the HC order which has categorically stated that from now the civic body could not regularize buildings merely charging penalty.

The KMC building department officials recently held a meeting with the civic legal officials to chalk out a plan for adopting a new policy for dealing with unauthorized constructions following the HC order. It has been decided that the KMC building department won't allow regularization of any constructions if the owners or the developers donít submit plans for new construction, renovation or repair.

"We won't be rigid if an owner or a developer gets involved in deviation from the original plan but such deviation has to be minor in nature. But in any case, a plan has to be submitted for any kind of constructions," a KMC building department official said. However, the KMC building and the law department officials could not come to a conclusion how would they define a deviation a minor one. "We are in touch with the legal experts before arriving at a decision to fix a definition for minor violation in case of a construction which is made flouting the KMC building rules," a KMC building department official said. However, the KMC law department officials have advised the building department not to take any hasty steps in connection with giving relief to owners of houses in cases of minor violations.
