Demolish six buildings near Chandigarh airport by Aug 10: GMADA
The Greater Mohali Area Development Authority (Gmada) has issued notices to owners of six illegally constructed buildings near the Chandigarh international airport to raze the structures by August 10 or else they will demolish them.
Gmada chief administrator Ravi Bhagat said, “The six buildings are near the boundary wall of the airport. The estate officer has been directed to identify high-rises constructed beyond the permissible norms. We had received complaints from the Indian Air Force and the airport authorities.”
Bhagat said the action taken report will be submitted in the high court.
The notices came after the IAF officials approached the district administration with a complaint of illegal construction and butcheries mushrooming near the airport. The matter was highlighted after additional deputy commissioner (ADC) Charandev Singh Mann conducted a survey and identified the illegal constructions and submitted his report to deputy commissioner Gurpreet Kaur Sapra. The report was further submitted to the Punjab government.
