Licence for industrial colony granted in violation of rules in Haryana
During campaigning for the Haryana Assembly elections, Prime Minister Narendra Modi used to accuse the then Haryana Chief Minister Bhupinder Singh Hooda of benefiting builders against rules and promising action if his party came to power.

The BJP has been in power for more than three and half years now and Modi's personal choice, Manohar Lal Khattar, is the chief minister. But what to speak of probing various alleged acts of omission and commission of previous government headed by Hooda, the present Haryana government headed by Khattar is also obliging builders and industrialists by relaxing rules. On May 1 this year, the Haryana government issued licence to a Maharashtra-based industrial group for setting up an industrial colony in  fifty three acres in Jhajjar district. Interestingly, the   land on which the licence has been granted did not have road connectivity which is mandatory for such a project.

While KM Panduranga, Director Town and Country Planning, who had issued the licence did not responded to repeated calls but Rajiv Jain, media adviser of chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar while admitting that the licence had been granted clarified that it was subject to the condition that building /zoning plans will be sanctioned only after the company gets road connectivity certificate from the concerned authorities. Moreover, they are forbidden form creating third party interest by selling plots. The million dollar question being asked in media, political and official circles is that what was the urgency for granting provisional licence. Despande, director of the company also did not responded to the email sent by this scribe.

The department is not taking any action for recovery of millions of rupees from builders as external development charges.

The letter issued by DTCP says that the licencee shall not give any advertisement  for sale of plots/commercial area before the approval of layout plan. Again if the powerful licencee issuesan advertisement who will check him?The letter of intent for this licence was granted on February 2, 2018. Things moved with jet speed in this case. Letter of intent issued on February this year says that your application dated 27th November, 2017 and dated February 1, 2018  for grant of licence was examined and considered. Within twenty four hours of submission of latest application, the letter of intent was issued.
