Realtor Accused Of Selling Plots/Flats Illegally, Police Asked To File FIR

The district administration has recommended registration of an FIR against a private realtor for allegedly selling plots around the Northern Peripheral Road in Gurgaon without taking a valid licence from the Haryana government’s department of Town and Country Planning (DTCP).
However, a spokesperson of the realtor, Earth Infrastructure Ltd, clarified that they had no information about any recommendation for an FIR and that they have the “requisite licences”.
Police have been asked to investigate the allegation that the realtor sold “plots” or “flats” illegally and get finer details before a case is registered.
The projects in question are Earthcopia I and II located in Sector 112 and 107 which, according to preliminary findings by the DTP (enforcement) have not obtained the necessary licences from the director general, town and country planning, Haryana. The builder is promoting these projects through online advertisements, maintain the district officials.
“We have received complaints via e-mails that the realtor has already begun bookings of plots or flats for their projects named Earthcopia I and Earthcopia II. However, there are no records of any licences or permissions issued in the name of Earth Infrastructure Ltd from our department. Most of these transactions have been carried out online and hence, we have informed the administration and asked them to examine the matter,” said DTP (enforcement), Anil Dabas.
According to Gurgaon deputy commissioner P C Meena, “Earth Infrastructure Ltd has contravened Section 7 (1) which is a cognizable offence as per provisions of Section 10 (1) of the Haryana Development and Regulations of Urban Areas Act, 1975 since it is mandatory that a realtor or developer obtain permission from the DTCP before starting the sale of plots.”
However, when contacted, a spokesperson of Earth Infrastructure said, “We have licence number 35 of 2011 for Earthcopia and licence number 23 of 2012 for Earthcopia II issued in our names. Also, we have not sold plots under any project and are yet to launch Earthcopia II in market.”
According to the latest data of the DTCP (available till December 2011), licence 35 of 2011 is issued in the name of Aurochem Buildprop Pvt Ltd for 11 acres of Sector 112 in city. Market watchers say that it is possible that a project is a part of a joint venture and there is nothing unusual in case the licence for a project is issued in the name of a joint venture partner.
However, according to.Dabas, “The licence may have been acquired by a different company. As per norms, only that company which has got the licences can advertize for its projects.”
