HC to be notified about unauthorized construction in Munnar
Kochi: The Additional Accountant General (AAG) will notify the court regarding the unauthorized construction in Munnar panchayat.
A decision to this extent was reached in a meeting between Devikulam sub collector Renu Raj IAS and AAG Rajith Thampan. It is learned that the AAG will seek legal action including contempt of court petition against Munnar village panchayat secretary.
In a letter sent to the AAG, the sub collector had pointed out that the construction without taking No Objection Certificate (NOC) was against the 2010 high court order.
As this order was violated, the district administration had sent a stop memo. However, the panchayat administration went ahead with the construction. As such, a contempt of court petition should be moved against the village panchayat secretary, she had demanded.
Sub collector Renu Raj IAS clarified that stringent action will be taken against unauthorized constructions in Munnar.
