Haryana urban local bodies department has framed a policy for extension in time limit for construction in improvement trusts beyond the stipulated period of three years. The policy is valid both for construction on residential as well as commercial plots.
An official spokesman of the department said in a release on Saturday that though the improvement trusts were empowered to take the decision for allowing the time extension as per the said provision, presently there was no comprehensive and uniform policy in the department, as mentioned in the allotment letter and the requisite fee charged.
He said that in the absence of such comprehensive and uniform policy, the extension cases were generally pending, resulting not only in revenue loss to the trusts, but also harassment to the allottees.
He said that in case the period of construction had expired before October 2013,the allottee of a residential plot in the schemes developed by an improvement trust that had failed to construct the building within the stipulated time would be, henceforth, allowed to construct the building subject to payment of such extension fees and charges.
