Gurgaon: The property owners in Gurgaon have improved their efforts to get the state to implement an amendment on the debated property rules of the industrial area in the city. The local association slammed on the industry authority HSIIDC, demanding for a special fee for transfer of illegal plots.
The law says that the authority cannot charge a lasing fee from the business persons who own these plots on a free-hold basis. The plot owners are complaining that the HSIIDC, by imposing the condition of approval of leasing has breached the Sec 11 of the Transfer of Property Act.
The Property Act in the country says that once an agreement is inked on a free-hold property, there should be no permission required for leasing that property and the free-hold transaction can’t be conditional.
The industry authority charges a lease fee of around Rs 600 per sq mt, provided an official approval is taken prior by the plot owner to filing the application. The association has already taken the legal route against the HSSIIDC and the case was referred by the Punjab and Haryana High court to the State Government.
The association will meet the principal secretary of the state soon and will put 15 points before him which were submitted in the High Court.
