Bhubaneswar: The Bhubaneswar Development Authority (BDA) has warned of land allotment cancellation against those who are yet to construct house on the land allotted by it, even after five years of allotment.
It has come to the notice of the BDA that many allottees are yet to construct their houses or complete the core houses despite multiple warnings and public circulars given through newspaper advertisements by BDA since 2012. In some cases, the BDA has got to know that the allottees wait for land prices to soar and later they sell it at a much higher price to builders, which is a gross violation of the scheme.
All allottees of different housing/ plotted schemes have been informed that they have to construct their houses on the allotted plots or to complete the core houses by 31.03.2022, failing which execution of lease deed and issue of NOC would not be allowed.
The BDA has allowed one more year considering many allottees who are staying abroad have not been able to construct their houses due to the COVID-19 pandemic and yet to register the lease deed of the asset allotted in favour of the allottees.
“This is the final warning to all the allottees who are not constructing houses on the allotted plot despite multiple notice and reminders. Upon non-compliance and defying the order, we will initiate stringent action against them as per the provisions and act. They will be penalized, and if required, their allotment can be revoked,” said Kabindra Kumar Sahu, Secretary, BDA.
Action will be initiated against the plot owners under the provisions of the Property Management Allotment Regulations, 2015 and BDA Land (Disposal and Allotment) Regulations, 2015.
