“Before executing the process, the structure of the built-up area is required to be regularised as per the SDMC building bylaws. Each plot will measure 70 square yards,” the order stated. Anything beyond the permissible limit will be marked as encroachment and removed as a mandatory condition, it said, adding that if residents fail to remove such encroachments, SDMC will remove them and necessary action such as cancellation of allotment will be initiated.
A perpetual lease deed of 99 years will be executed as per the prevailing circler rates and ground rent will be charged as per rules.
The decision has been taken on the basis of an approval given by the standing committee in December and passing of a resolution in January. “The matter was pending for a long time. The properties are currently given on licence,” said an official.
After receiving applications, the department will conduct a survey and measure the houses to rule out any encroachment. “We may make the properties freehold later. The owners can develop the property as per the building bylaws and enjoy FARs approved in the master plan,” said the official.
All conditions mentioned in the redevelopment plan of Parda Bagh Rehabilitation Colony, approved by the standing committee in 2016, will be applicable to the residential properties. The services will be laid and later maintained as per norms of the respective service/engineering departments of SDMC. Development, augmentation and other charges will be recovered from the owners by the engineering department.
The building department will have to obtain all necessary no-objection certificates such as approval from the chief forest officer and Delhi Urban Art Commission, and environment and ASI clearances at the time of sanctioning the building plan.
“The redevelopment plan also included the local commercial site. After completing the residential work, we will start granting the ownership right to the shops. The standard plan for the shop plots will be prepared by the architecture department before sanctioning the building plan,” said the official.
