Declare Jammu Old City as Heritage city, Change Master Plan: Citizens Forum

Early Times Report

JAMMU, July 8: Alleging corruption at the municipal bodies in approving the plans of construction and providing permission for the same, Citizens forum has pleaded for non-application for FAR as per the master plan in the cases of old structures in the old cities of Jammu and Srinagar.
In a request addressed to Governor Satya Pal Malik and to Mayor JMC, Citizens forum President R K Chadha has said that adhering to the FAR in cases of houses constructed in the past in the old cities of Jammu and Srinagar on, 2 to 3 marlas of lands by the marginal economically families, will lead to hardships for them. In view of growing members of family and demand for more accommodation, these economically marginal class citizens will not be able to meet the demand for more accommodation, with the number of family members growing, he said.
Chadha said that there is a cumbersome system to obtain NO objection certificates required to get Municipal plan approved from the Municipalities. This cumbersome process leads to arduous journey to different departments loaded with objection for one or other requirement.
"Previously the entire Jammu city was built by the courtesy of a Khilafwarzi officer @ Rs. 6 Lakhs for Commercial buildings and some reasonable price for residential houses. The entire old cities of Jammu & Srinagar have already a jumble of buildings. By applying FAR in these cases, requiring leaving of some more space while raising new constructions will only compound the problem," said Chadha.
The forum has requested that the old city Of Jammu be declared as Heritage City like Amritsar City and be developed as per the norms and specifications of old heritage cities. Other signatories to the statement include: Add. DGP {retd.} S S Wazir, Former PSC Member Dr. R Madan, Prof. Aman Rathore former PSC member, Arun Gupta Chairman MIER, ( Educationist) Arun Sharma Retd. Chief Engineer, R K Handa Retd. Vice Chairman JDA, M S Kapoor Retd. Engineer, Anil Sethi Advocate High court, Ashok Parihar Advocate High Court, Veena Handa Educationist, Sarita Oswal Industrialist, Sameer Bhasin PR and Media Consultant.
K K Khosa president KP Sabha, Jit Pal Sahni Businessman, and Sunny Dua Journalist.
