GURGAON: Acting against “erring” developers, the department of Town and Country Planning has lodged an FIR against a builder in Gurgaon for selling plots without obtaining a licence from it. District Town Planner (DTP), Gurgaon, Anil Dabas said in a release that the builder company was booking plots in Sector 78 and 79 in Gurgaon under its project named ‘Cambrian Island’.
This is a prelaunch type of project and the company used to lure investors through advertisements on the internet though it still has no licence for selling plots, so thereby making the entire project illegal, he said. He said the FIR has been registered in Kherki Dhaula police station and the police were investigating the matter. Dabas appealed to prospective buyers to verify the legal status of any construction company from the local office of DTP before booking a a plot or a flat. No one can book or sell plots without obtaining a valid licence from the department of Town and Country Planning, Haryana, and if anyone does so it is illegal, he said. Getting a licence is a mandatory condition before launch or prelaunch of a construction project, he said.
