CHENNAI: Chennai Corporation on Saturday re-sealed a building in N S C Bose Road here after it failed to rectify the violation by bringing down third and fourth floors of the building as ordered by Madras High Court.
Chennai Corporation officials, who sealed the building, told Express that the owner Sharath Babu failed to adhere to Madras High Court order to demolish the unauthorized third and fourth floors of the building within two weeks from the date of desealing the premises.
It is learnt the owner was issued lock and seal notice for constructing third and fourth floor illegally on January 3, 2011. The building was sealed on December 12, 2012 following which he approached Madras High court.
The Madras High Court ordered Chennai Corporation to deseal the building besides permitting the petitioner to apply for regularization of the second floor and demolition of third and fourth floor.
Following this an undertaking to the High Court was given by the owner on April this year and Chennai Corporation de-sealed the building on May 8, 2014. However, the owner only demolished the fourth floor and was trying to get the building regularized through CMDA.
After giving the owner ample time, Chennai Corporation on Saturday re-sealed the building.
