GURGAON: The Department of Town and Country Planning (DTCP) has rejected a proposal for setting up a colony by SS Group, whose Mayfair Gardens project licence has not been renewed due to delay in payment of the fee. The developer had submitted the proposal seeking licence for setting up a colony on a 2.9-acre piece of land in Sector 84 near Hayatpur village.
In a letter to the builder, the director general of DTCP, T C Gupta, has written: “Since you are not able to manage a single colony, it is not worthwhile to consider additional licence for another area.”Reacting to the development, Sukhbir Jaunpuria, owner of the SS Group, said: “There is nothing wrong in this. The licence is not permitted because of other reasons. The land is owned by us and we will try to take the licence for another project.
“Earlier, the DTCP had issued a show-cause notice to the builder on account of payment default. In his response to the notice, the builder had contended that the payment defaults were due to other builders who co-owned the Mayfield Gardens project. The SS Group has only 8 % share in the project.But Gupta didn’t accept the argument and said that none of the co-owners in Mayfield Gardens will get a new licence in Gurgaon.It may be recalled that the DTCP had cancelled the licences of the builders involved in Mayfield Gardens on account of non-payment of the dues.
