Promoter with the help of corrupt municipal official, building complete additional floor at 2/28, T N Chatterjee Street in gross violation of Municipality Building Rule 2007. In 2011, first vertical columns are built & when local residents objected, promoter run away as he was not in possession of any kind of approval. In Nov 2012, again the construction started where it left in 2011. What made municipality to make legal in 2012 which was illegal in 2011? Promoter started construction more than 5000 sq ft area without any approval in 2011. what action municipality took? No action. Also, municipality chairman, councilor not showing a single paper related to illegal construction. Even municipality did not replied RTI within mandatory 30 days asking the documents. On 07 Nov when local residents meet at chairman office, chairman said that if municipality CIC feels they can allow Gross violation of Law of land, in this case it was Municipality building rule 2007. It is dangerous sign when people in chair feels themselves all mighty to have license to follow or bend rule case to case basis. The matter was also put into chief minister notice on 30 Nov 12.
