Revenue dept mulls action against Point Blanc resort
Munnar: Intensifying the action against large- scale encroachments, the Revenue department is mulling to take action against the Point Blanc resort here for constructing the resort in the Ecologically Sensitive Area without procuring the necessary documents and violating the 'Kuthaka Pattom.'
As part of the plan, the Devikulam sub-collector has asked the Pallivasal Panchayat Secretary to submit the documents of the resort constructed at Lakshmi region.
The Revenue department has doubts regarding how the resort got the permission for construction in the first stage. Lack of clarity exists on the validity of the 'pattayam' also.
There are indications that the resort owners got the documents for building the resort following strong political pressure during the previous government's tenure.
Further action on the encroachments will be taken after the Idukki collector and sub-collector holds discussions with the Chief Minister today.
The authorities till now have not initiated action against the encroachments in Lakshmi region where huge corporates in Kerala are building resorts.
