Owners of around 2,000 Delhi Development authority (DDA) flats in upmarket D6 block of Vasant Kunj are in dilemma.
Sub-registrar office has refused to register any property transactions in the area following Delhi High Court ruling, because of which owners are unable to sale their flats.
In July last year, the courts’s order came on a petition related to aviation safety filed by advocate Yashwant Shenoy.
High Court had stopped the new constructions of the building near the airport.
An “obstacle survey” was conducted by airport operation Delhi International Airport Ltd, in which it was found that eight-storey apartments in the Ganga, Yamuna, Saraswati and Narmada complexes are violating the height restriction on the building near the Airport.
All the 2,000 flat owners are being penalised for illegal constructions because of few, said the residents of Vasant Kunj.
“It is DDA’s fault that the height of the towers have breached the norms, why should residents of nearly, 2,000 flats suffers for no fault of theirs?” asked Vikram Ghelot, Chairman Federation of CWG RWAs, Vasant Kunj.
“The flats were bulid according to the height norms applicable near the airport and we had got an NOC from AAI,” said a senior DDA official.
“We have written to South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC) to undertake a survey and demolish structures wherever necessary,” he added.
“Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA) is directed to make available the list of all obstacles to the sub-registrar of documents and applicants, who shall ensure that no further constructions as forms part of the obstructions pointed out by the DGCA is permitted, “said the high court last year.
Residents living their are asking that why are they suffering, if they have not violated any norms.
