Damage to House no. 4/11767 due to Unauthorized/Illegal Construction at House no. 4/11766, Sat Nagar, Karol Bagh, New Delhi-110005
The commissioner (MCD, North)
This is to inform you that my father, Sh. Ishwar Chand Gupta is a resident of house no. 4/11767, Sat Nagar, Karol Bagh, New Delhi-110005. He is a senior citizen (age 77 yrs ). There is an unauthorized construction going on at the adjacent house (no. 4/11766), and due to this unauthorized construction there is development of a no. of gaps/fissures in the walls and floor of our house (4/11767) and this has now increased due to ongoing unauthorized construction in 4/11766. Our house is at a great risk of collapsing esp. if damage increases further. The owner has dig a basement up to 14 feet or so. He has also encroached the electrical pole in to his house's balcony ( 5 feet on both the sides ).
Sir on 18th Sept. 2012 even MCD ( in presense of police force from Prasad Nagar Police station) put a seal on this unauthorized construction with a direction to demolish the unauthorized portion, still the construction is going on illegally.
My father has already complained to MCD Zonal Office, KBZ , Anand Parvat (also submitted a copy to SHO, Prasad Nagar Police Station) on 28th Jan,2013. He also sent the copies of the complaint (through Speed Post) on 31st Jan, 2013 to You, Dpty Comm(MCD,KBZ), Chief Vigilance Officer (North), Director Vigilance and Lt. Governor of Delhi. He also met our area Councillor Mr. Rajesh Bhatia twice and pleaded to him regarding stopping unauthorized construction. Sir, no body is bothered and there is no respect for senior citizens. It is really very sad and shameful.
One day Mr.BP Singh (JE, Karol Bagh Zone, Ward no. 149)) instead of taking action against the culprit (owner of 4/11766) told my father that he can get some compensation (money) from the owner of 4/11766, else he might get my father's house demolished if my father does not compromise. Sir, this is state of affairs in Delhi (Capital of india) i.e. a govt. servant is threatening the victim (a senior citizen). It seems that the palm of the JE has been greased. Unfortunately the MCD officials have failed to perform their duties and as such have a very bad image in the society. Sir, Your Excellency may order/call the record and reports on the aforesaid property to check that whether the prior approval has been obtained by the owner of the aforesaid property (4/11766). If yes, who has given the approval of the aforesaid unauthorised construction? And If MCD has not given the permission, then what action MCD has taken to stop and demolish the aforesaid Unauthorized Construction (even after our written complaint).
Sir, I request you to please take a strict action against Mr. BP Singh and also get this unauthorized/illegal (already sealed by MCD on 18.09.2012) construction stopped immediately to prevent further damage to our house. Sir, my father is quite old ( age 77yrs) and can not run from door to door. Please look in to the matter seriously, and take prompt & appropriate action. We shall be highly obliged to you.
