Gulshan’s illegal structures to be demolished Oct 18

Rajdhani Unnayan Kartripakkha (RAJUK) will demolish the unapproved and illegal portions of buildings at two plots in between road no 106 and 104 in the capital’s posh Gulshan area on October 18.

“We have served the notices on Golam Mowla, owners of Plot 18/c at road 106 and Abdul Hai Sarkar, owner of Plot 26 at road 104 and they failed to maintain the RAJUK orders,” authorized officer M Shafiqul Islam told BSS today.

The monitoring committee took the decision at a meeting at Rajuk Mohakhali office today, he said, adding, they will go for action to demolish the illegal portions of the two installations and requested the law enforcement agencies to deploy the force to maintain law and order.

RAJUK monitoring teams for different city areas were formed comprising of representatives of different professional bodies including REHAB and land developers to stop illegal constructions in the capital.

Shafiqul, who is also member secretary of the monitoring team of RAJUK zone 2B, said they have already served separate notices, giving one week’s time, on the owners of respective holding numbers Gha-182, 183, Ta-173/2, Ta-199, Gha-182 and 1839 along with the holding no 186 at Dhakkin Badda, Shahadat Swarani.

Following the notices, he said, a number of holding owners informed them that they had started work for demolition of their unapproved and illegal portions of the buildings. The owners who will fail will face tough actions of the regulatory bodies including imprisonment or fine for their misdeeds, the official said.

Earlier, he said, RAJUK fined Mominur Rashid, owner of plot 27 at road 176, South Avenue in Gulshan, fined Taka 50,000 and demolish his unapproved and illegal portions of the buildings to execute the monitoring team’s decision.

RAJUK officials said that some owners of the buildings are continuing their works deviating from the approved designs causing accidents in the construction sites that increase the number of casualty and damage of property.

Following the sections eight and nine of the Mobile Court Act, 2009, he said, owners of the illegal and unapproved installations would be sentenced to two years in jail or fine of minimum Taka 50,000 or both.

The regulatory body asked the concerned building owners to inform RAJUK immediately after removing illegal and unapproved parts of their buildings to avoid legal action
