Gujarat HC may take action against GMC for an 11-storey building

The Gujarat High Court (HC) has pulled the Gandhinagar Municipal Corporation (GMC) and clarified that it might take action against it, including sealing, for the 11-storeyed building in Sector 11, if GMC has withdrawn its permission and no occupancy certificate is issued.

The HC Bench of Justice, including Chief Justice Aravind Kumar and Justice Ashutosh Shastri, ordered two lawyers to inspect the building constructed by J K Infrastructure and submit their reports.

An ex-councillor filed a petition complaining that the building was built without permission and was utilised without any occupancy certificate.

The commissioners had a complaint against the occupancy and usage of the building. The HC questioned the civic body why the building was operated without any occupancy certificate.

The HC ordered the building developers to file an affidavit, clarifying which permission it received to construct the building and permit occupancy and use. The court had also clarified that the petition would not come to the civic body from taking any action if it has withdrawn the development permission and no occupancy certificate is issued.
