Totally 15 buildings that had resorted to various violations were sealed by the officials of town planning wing of the Coimbatore Corporation during the second day of the drive against illegal structures here on Monday.

Three buildings in central zone and 12 buildings in East, North and the West zone respectively were sealed under the 56, 56 2 (a) and 57 of the Town and Country Planning Act 1971.

While two buildings located on TV Samy Road near RS Puram deviated from the actual plan and had utilised more space, an additional floor without approval was constructed at a  building on NSR Road near Saibaba Colony.

Some complexes located at Sukrawar Pettai, Mill Road, Mettupalayam Road, Ganapathy, Saravanampatti, Nanjappa road, Thudiyalur where structures had been raised without allocating space for parking were also sealed.  Two buildings on Sathy Road in Saravanampatti and Ganapathy that have constructed additional floors also faced the tune. 

The Corporation claimed that it had sent notices to owners of those buildings, which have committed violations, one month ago. However the owners failed to rectify their violation. 

 Sources said that out of 55 buildings that have violated norms, three were residential complexes built on a space of 3000 square feet. Action on these structures would be initiated in the third phase, sources said.     

However, the building owners can get court or government order to reopen their complexes, informed sources said.
