Major goof up in construction of flats at Muthi by JDA
No prior permission sought from PCB
1/29/2020 11:57:13 PM


JAMMU, Jan 29: In a major goof up, the Jammu Development Authority (JDA) constructed the flats at Muthi in the outskirts of Jammu city without prior permission from the Pollution Control Board (PCB) as the construction has been carried out in violation of norms.
As per the details available with “Early Times”, contrary to its own policy where JDA makes the people to run from pillar to post while granting permission for construction of house to common netizens while at the same time it has come to fore that illegal constructions of flats at Muthi has been carried out by the JDA as it did not sought the prior permission from the PCB which is mandatory as per the norms coupled with giving damn to the Solid Waste Management rules while carrying out the construction of these flats numbered in hundreds.
As per the sources, PCB has now issued a notice to the Vice Chairman JDA stating therein that the flats constructed by the JDA without seeking the permission from the pollution board with regard to the pollution and Solid Waste Management Rules (SWMR).
It stated that the work on these palatial flats is going on for the last several years and cursory look at the flats are enough to conclude that whopping amount has been spent upon them and on some flats work have been completed and taken by the people as the vehicles, bikes, cars seen parked therein in the flats.
"Some big shark is reportedly involved in this palatial construction of flats as how come JDA without seeking permission from the Pollution Board constructed these flats without any fear of law" sources rued, added that it has to be seen now what will be the reply of the JDA to the Pollution Control Board notice as the JDA now has caught in a fix because the JDA flats have come in a residential area and Jammu and Kashmir state pollution board directed the JDA to make the flats non operational which are operational presently as there are no pollution devices coupled with no pollution measures has been taken by them and ask the authority to take back the flats if allotted to a person or persons.
It is pertinent to mention herein that Pollution Control Board has directed the JDA in case the JDA utterly fails to take any remedial measures to their notice, then the Pollution control board will take legal action and direct the JDA to take immediate measures as the same even causes environmental pollution including water pollution.
Several residents of the Muthi lashes out at the JDA for constructing the illegal and unauthorized flats due to which the inhabitants are facing pollution problems adding further that at the time when flats are already constructed and few left from getting completed— it is quite intriguing and baffling that State Pollution Control Board woke up from deep slumber only and served a notice to JDA for not seeking mandatory permission from the Board.
