Media Society is also not afraid of Law: Here is a letter written by one of the valuable member of the Media Society (the society comprises of members related to journalism) in the country. It is reported that this society is doing un-authorised construction and in spite of some of the member opposing it tooth and nail, the managing committee is not giving any heed to their request to follow proper legal procedure to get the construction done by legal methods. WHY IS IT SO ?
Following is the letter written to Lieutenant Governor of Delhi, with copy to DDA and RCS
Hon’ble Lt. Governor, 4th April, 2014
Govt. of NCT of Delhi
I am a resident of B-505, Media Society, Plot no- 18A, Sector-7, Dwarka, New Delhi. I am member of the Society and original allottee of the house. My membership number is 192.
Sir, the Managing Committee of our Society is constructing an additional room in the society without following the procedure laid down by DDA. The MC members are misguiding the residents that they have already talked the DDA officers and MC has got green signal from DDA officers with a condition that the matter should be kept very secret. The moment construction is complete, DDA will regularize the illegal construction by charging the penalty which is a nominal amount.
I have been continuously requesting the Managing Committee to complete the legal formalities/ procedure before starting the construction but no heed was paid to my request. We, three members wrote a letter to MC in this regard in the month of November 2013. They ignored our letter and started construction. I do not know, who is supporting them because they do not have any fear of legal action. They are behaving as if they are above law of land.
Sir, No map is yet approved by DDA. I have confirmed it from Director, Shri Amit Das. If the additional room is within approved FAR, then the map prepared by a competent Architect must be submitted to DDA for approval. It is mandatory, otherwise the construction will be considered illegal.
Sir, I request you with folded hands to kindly take an appropriate action for stalling illegal construction. I hope, DDA will never support any activity related to illegal construction.
However, I hereby mention the names of the office bearers of the society as below:-
- Soundeep Shanker (President)
- Rita Manchanda (Vice President)
- Brij Bhardwaj (Vice President)
- Sanjay Jha (Secretary)
- Girija Shankar Kaura (Treasurer)
Building of one additional room without requisite sanction from competent authority i.e. DDA , violative of DDA rules and regulations and liable to be penalized under the provisions of Indian Penal Code or Criminal law.
1.Vice Chairman, DDA, New Delhi.
3. Commissioner (H) DDA
2.The Registrar of Co-operative societies ,
