The Chandigarh administration has asked the allottees or lessees, who have not obtained mandatory completion or occupation certificate, to apply for the same, failing which proceedings under Section 8A of the Capital of Punjab (Development and Regulation) Act, 1952, will be initiated against them.
UT deputy commissioner-cum-estate officer Mohammed Shayin observed that some of the allottees or lessees have not obtained mandatory completion or occupation certificate in respect of sites allotted, transferred or leased out to them. According to the terms and conditions of the allotment or lease, every allottee or lessee is required to complete the building in a time bound manner and obtain completion certificate.
On account of breach of any condition of the allotment or lease, the allotment or lease can be cancelled by the estate office under the provisions of the Capital of Punjab (Development and Regulation) Act, 1952. Besides, in the absence of completion or occupation certificate, no request for transfer or for any other purpose can be entertained by the estate office.
Assistant estate officer Balbir Singh advised all allottees or transferees or lessees, who have not obtained completion or occupation certificate till date, to apply for the same immediately.
Shayin said some of the allottees or lessees had not executed statutory redemption deed although no due certificate in most of the cases stood already issued. Since the execution of redemption deed after getting the no due certificate is a legal requirement, no request for transfer of property or for any other purpose can be entertained by the estate office in the absence of redemption deed.
