The Delhi government on Saturday cancelled allotment of three industrial plots in Bawana and Narela.
Delhi State Industrial and Infrastructure Development Corporation (DSSIDC) officials said the plots were being misused as they had property dealing and trading offices on their premises.
The plots were allotted under the relocation scheme of the Delhi government to enable entrepreneurs shift their industries that were earlier in non-conforming or residential areas.
About 23,000 units have been allotted industrial plots in new industrial area and flatted factory complexes developed in areas such as Bawana and Narela.
Senior DSIIDC officials said show cause notices had been served to nine more units where the property owners have been found violating the terms and conditions of the allotment and running activities other than the ones permitted in the area.
“These plots were allotted in 2005 and the government had given one year to the allottees to construct units and start industrial activities. However, on demand of entrepreneurs' associations and on payment of delayed-construction penalty, the government had extended the date,” A senior DSIIDC official said.
“In April 2010, the Delhi cabinet gave one final extension of six months to about 8,000 units to construct factory and commence operations,” the official added.
