JMC seals commercial building at Sidhra



JAMMU: Jammu Municipal Corporation sealed the Commercial building owned by Naseema Rashid Wani and Asra Wani at Sidhra Jammu. The huge commercial Building had been raised in violation of extant building Bye-laws and Jammu Municipal Corporation had accordingly initiated action against the violations as per provisions of Control of Building Operations Act, 1988 wherein the violative part of the Building had already been sealed by the Corporation.


In a recent development, Revenue Department after undertaking fresh measurements of the land of the building had observed that the owner had encroached 3 marlas of State land, owing to which the Commissioner Municipality after affording due opportunity to the violator has cancelled the building permission of the building rendering the whole structure as illegal.


After following due course of law under provisions laid down under Jammu Municipal Corporation Act, 2000 and Control of Building Operations Act, 1988, the Enforcement wing of Jammu Municipal Corporation today sealed the Building to restrain the violator to undertake any fresh construction at the site.


It is worthwhile to mention that the Corporation has already filed an appeal against the violator in the High Court of Jammu and Kashmir and has simultaneously rejected the Compounding fee deposited by the violator for violations committed in the raised structure.


Jammu Municipal Corporation in its endeavor to make the City encroachment and violation free, fervently appeals the residents to adhere to the extant Building and Civic laws
