CHENNAI: Chennai Corporation re-sealed a building in N S C Bose Road after the owner failed to comply with a Madras HC order to bring down the third and fourth floors of the building within two weeks from the date of de-sealing the premises.

Chennai Corporation officials told Express that the owner Sharath Babu was issued lock and seal notice for constructing the third and fourth floors illegally on January 3, 2011. The building was sealed on December 12, 2012 following which he approached the Madras High court. The Madras High Court ordered Chennai Corporation to de-seal the building and permitted the petitioner to apply for regularization of the second floor and demolish the third and fourth floors. Following an undertaking by the owner to do so, the Chennai Corporation de-sealed the building on May 8, 2014.

However, the owner demolished only the fourth floor and was attempting to get the building regularized through CMDA.

Following these attempts by the owner, the Chennai Corporation re-sealed the building on Saturday.
