Gurgaon, June 10
Complying with the orders of the Supreme Court and the Punjab and Haryana High Court, PC Meena, Deputy Commissioner, Gurgaon, has directed the officials concerned and public at large to maintain status quo within a 900-metre radius of the Air Force Station and the local ammunition depot.
He said no new constructions were allowed in this restricted area though constructions in place on the ground as on February 10, 2012, would not be demolished.
Meena said as per the directions of the high court, if any person is found raising construction despite status quo orders, he/she would be booked for contempt of court.
He maintained that if a neighbour was found providing power supply for taking up illegal constructions in that area, he/she would also be treated as an offender and his electricity connection would be disconnected. Directions in this regard have been issued to the officials concerned of the power utilities.
The Deputy Commissioner has also directed the officials concerned of the Town and Country Planning Department, hydrologist, police and the Municipal Corporation of Gurgaon to carry out joint inspection of the area at least twice a week to check illegal constructions and digging of new borewells in the restricted area.
Such illegal borewells will be sealed and cases registered against the violators under the Water Act. The departments concerned will also be answerable in this regard.
Meena said the Gurgaon Tehsildar had also been directed not to register any property without obtaining an NOC within the restricted area. The khasra numbers of the land falling in this area have been fed into the computers of the Tehsil office to ensure this.
