Haryana Government: The Department of Town and Country Planning, Haryana (DTCP) revoked the permit given by Mahira Infratech Private Limited (also called Sai Aaina Farms Pvt. Limited.) on May 20, 2022, to construct an affordable housing development in Sector 68, Gurgaon due to a few severe violations.
On Monday, the government renewed the Mahira Infratech Private Limited license and required the developer to complete its affordable housing development located in Sector 68 Gurgaon by the end of six months and transfer the power to the owners. This is an enormous relief for homeowners.
Haryana government has reimposed the license
In May 2022 in May 2022, the Department of Town and Country Planning, Haryana, was able to cancel the permit granted for Mahira Infratech Private Limited for the development of an affordable housing development located in Sector 68 area of Gurgaon in the wake of serious violations made by the company.
Because of the offense, the DTCP had block listed its directors, developers, and stakeholders for having submitted fake bank guarantees and false signatures on alliance agreements when they acquired the license for the project.
Mahira Infratech Pvt. Ltd. was permitted to set up the affordable housing society on a total area of 9.96875 acres within Sector 68 in Gurgaon in 2017.
Arun Kumar Gupta, the Principal Secretary, told the Government of Haryana, Town and Country Planning Department, that the finality of justice could be fulfilled if an impugned order has stayed to the point that it is canceled and taking over the project licensed as per rule 19 of 1976.
Haryana government asked developers to finish the housing project in six months.
The developer must complete the housing development within six months and then hand over ownership to the owners.
The order states that the interests of allottees must be safeguarded. It may be the case that the developer might have committed some fraud or inconsistencies in the document that was submitted to obtain a license from Mahira Infratech Pvt. Ltd.
However, it is an established law that allottees cannot be penalized because of no fault of their own and DTCP can always choose to pursue legal action against the developer violating the law and committing these violations. However, the interest of allottees must be protected at all costs.
Finish the housing project in six months.
Another reason to direct the developer to finish the project was that it would be an unjust improvement for the developer since they repaid the allottees. It was a sign of their commitment to complete the project before handing it over to an allottee.
The process of taking over the project in the case at hand per Rule 19 of Haryana Development and Regulation of Urban Areas Rules of 1976 seemed to be infeasible since the allottees had to pay only a tiny amount, which meant that the DTCP was not able to raise funds to complete the plan.
