Corporation has prepared a list of 55 buildings

The Coimbatore Corporation on Monday continued its drive against buildings where construction was in progress in violation of the approved plan.

According to sources in the Corporation, officials in the Town Planning section fanned out across the city to seal buildings.

They sealed three buildings in the Central Zone and four each in the North, West and East Zones.

They did not seal any building in the South Zone.

The first building in R.S. Puram on T.V. Samy Road, according to the Corporation, did not have adequate setback space.

The second building on T.V. Samy Road did not have adequate setback space.

In the third building, the Corporation officials found out that the builder had not provided adequate setback space on the sides and rear and had constructed more than what the Corporation permitted.

The fourth building on Mettupalayam Road near the North Coimbatore Flyover did not have sufficient setback space and the builder had constructed a cellar without permission.

In the fifth on Sukhrawarpet, the builder had not provided parking space.

The sixth building on Dr. Nanjappa Road was without permission.

The builder here had constructed 1,080 sq ft each at cellar, ground, first, and second floors.

The officials found that the seventh building on Mill Road did not have parking space and in the eighth they found that the builder had constructed the second, third, and fourth floors without permission.

The ninth building for the day on Sathyamangalam Road in Ganapathy was in deviation of the approved plan and had additional construction.

In the 10th building on Sanganoor Road the builder had diverted the semi-basement, ground floor and first floor for commercial use.

The builder had not provided adequate open space.

In the 11th building in Saravanampatty and 12th building on Tiruchi Road, the builders had constructed more than what the Corporation had permitted.

The last three too were no different.

Please stop talking about rights of the tenants. Life of the people is
more important than their rights. The tenants should sue the building
owners for selling the property to them without proper permissions.

This is good, but don't you know before the accident happens, why always
taking action after an incident meaning the lives.., irresponsible in
either directions..,

How does this affect the rights of those who have purchased units in the affected buildings. It is the responsibility of the government to ensure that the corporation parameters are followed throughout the building process and also through regular inspections at random. Why is it that the consumer will end up being punished for governmental apathy, bureaucratic dysfunction and builder greed???
