Adhere to CDP rules, DC tells builders

Addressing a gathering at an interaction programme organised by the Mangalore unit of the Confederation of Real Estate Developers Associations of India (CREDAI) at the TMA Pai Convention Hall here on Sunday, Ponnuraj said that the district administration may form enforcement squad to nip violations in the bud. “Most of the buildings in the City have one or other violations. Stop floating rules and start thinking positively for the development of the City or else face music. Completion certificate will be denied if builders violate rules,” the DC warned.

Further, he called upon people to be cautious before buying flats or other buildings in the City. “Check all documents thoroughly, verify whether all conditions in the agreement are followed and ensure whether the builder has obtained completion certificate. File petition in the court if the builder does not adhere to the agreement,” he added.  Ponnuraj said that the problem of traffic snarls in the City will be solved once the CDP was implemented properly. “The number of vehicles plying in the City is approximately equal to the number of population. The faulty parking policy is the major reason for the traffic congestions in the City. Nearly 50 per cent of the occupants in most of the buildings in the City are forced to park their vehicles on the road since their buildings do not have sufficient parking space.

Similarly, most of the buildings do not have parking place for customers too,” he pointed out.

Cameras to control traffic

The DC informed that Rs 5 crore has already been sanctioned to install surveillance cameras at all traffic junctions in the City. The police department has already prepared a plan, he said adding that the system will in place soon.

Information centre

Ponnuraj said that a system will be introduced to provide information on the CDP to people at the Mangalore Urban Development Authority (MUDA) office. People, who want to buy or build houses, flats and buildings can obtain information regarding rules and regulations in the CDP through the system.

He said that the building bylaws will be revised to match the new CDP. A four stage spot inspection system will be introduced to check violations, he added.

CREDAI President K C Naik, Secretary P K Abdul Razak, Mangalore City Corporation (MCC) Town Planning Officer Balakrishna Gowda and KCCI former President Kumble Narasimha Prabhu were present.
