The Haryana government has approved a new policy for grant of no-objection certificates (NOC) in urban areas falling outside controlled areas.
A spokesman of the Haryana town and country planning department in a release on Saturday said the NOC would be granted only in those cases where there was no violation of provisions of the Haryana Development and Regulation of Urban Areas Act, 1975, and the land was not part of any controlled area subject to fulfillment of the prescribed norms or parameters.
He said as per these norms, the applied land should be located on any metalled road or revenue pathway not less than 22 feet. However, such revenue pathways could be required to be widened in future to at least 6 feet width by donating 1 foot wide strip on either side. Therefore, the applicant would have to transfer 1 foot wide strip of his land abutting the road in the name of panchayat before grant of NOC.
In case of medium and large-scale industries, warehouses of more than 5 acres and big institutions like colleges and universities, the minimum approach should be through 11 feet wide revenue pathways or metalled road having a minimum of 10 metre right of way.
The applicant or the owner of the land would have to submit an undertaking or affidavit to the effect that in case the land, for which NOC was sought, was acquired by any government agency for widening of road or pathway in future, he would not object to the acquisition proceedings, the spokesman said.
