Gurugram: In a major relief to plot owners in colonies under the jurisdiction of the Municipal Corporation of Gurugram (MCG), the state urban local bodies department has reduced the minimum size eligible for regularisation and subdivision of plots to 100 square yards from 200 square yards, officials said on Friday.
As per MCG officials, plot owners can also subdivide the plots of 100 square yards. The decision will ensure that illegal subdivision of plots in municipal areas is curbed and more residents will apply for permission to get their building plans sanctioned, the civic body said.
As per the order issued by the urban local bodies department on January 3, the directions to reduce the minimum size for subdivision had been taken under the policy for regularisation of illegal subdivision of plots/ permission for subdivision of residential plots in town planning schemes, rehabilitation schemes and improvement trust schemes in municipal areas of Haryana.
Property owners in a large number of colonies, which fall under the jurisdiction of MCG, will benefit from the new guidelines as most buyers opt for smaller plots in the range of 50 to 60 square yards, said officials. A number of existing property owners who own plots of 50 square yards can now get them regularised by the MCG and get their building plans sanctioned, they added.
Gurugram municipal commissioner PC Meena said that a plot having an area equal or more than 100 square yards is eligible for regularisation in case of illegal subdivision of plots/fresh subdivision of plots under the policy. The size of the subdivided plot should not be less than 50 square yards. “Earlier, the minimum size of the plot allowed to be subdivided was 200 square yards but now it has been reduced to 100 square yards,” he said.
The order further said that the owners of subdivided plots will get their building plan approved as per the provisions stated in the Haryana Building Code 2017, subject to the condition that the front setback of the subdivided plots shall be as per the original plot.
Rakesh Rana, president of Sai Kunj residents’ welfare association (RWA) in Palam Vihar said that the decision by the state government will help a large number of plot owners as most buyers these days prefer plots in the range of 50 to 60 square yards.
“Residents owning such plots can now apply for building plans and get their houses regularised. Many people in Gurugram will benefit from this move taken by the government,” Rana added.
