Tenant, help verification a must in Gurgaon
The Gurgaon district magistrate clamped Section 144 of CrPC in the city on Wednesday, making it statutorily compulsory for residents to verify the antecedents of their tenants and domestic help from the police department within 10 days.
This unprecedented move comes close on the heels of recent incidents of crimes committed by domestic helps and tenants in various towns of the National Capital including Noida.
Gurgaon DM Rakesh Gupta promulgated Section 144 in the city, making it mandatory for residents to provide full details including the original address as well as attested photograph of the domestic help to the police station concerned in 10 days.
Property owners who rent out their premises to strangers are also required to provide the antecedents and photograph of their tenants.
Mehra said the antecedents of tenants and domestic helps would be verified from earlier employers as well as from their place of origin.
Gupta said that those flouting the orders would tried under section 188 of IPC making the liable for imprisonment for one month to six months.
According to legal experts section 188 is applicable in the case of disobedience to order duly promulgated by public servant. Those flouting the orders promulgated by public servant (the DM in this case), causing obstruction,
annoyance or injury to any persons could be punished with simple imprisonment for a term, which may extend to one month or with fine of Rs 200, or with both.
The imprisonment could, however, be extended to six months or be fined up to Rs 1,000 if such disobedience caused danger to human life, health or safety, caused a riot or affray.
