Chandigarh, October 13

The Property Consultants Association has started an awareness campaign to make people aware of the building bylaws and also launched a Facebook page in the name “Know Reality of Chandigarh”.

“For some time, people who dream of buying a plot are thinking that there is a ban on construction in the city and also believe that illegal construction takes place in the city, but in fact the situation is entirely different. Chandigarh Building Rules are being strictly followed and no one is violating the rules,” said Kamal Gupta, president of the association.

Association general secretary Jatinder Singh said the illusion was being spread that the burden of population would increase in the next 10 years.

He said in the Master Plan 2031, the population of the city had been estimated to reach 1.6 million in the next 10 years. Even if all private plots from Sectors 1 to 47 in the city are made triple story and people start living on each floor, the population of these sectors could not exceed 3 lakh.
