SRINAGAR: Commissioner Srinagar Municipal Corporation, Dr G.N.Qasba Sunday said that stern action would be initiated against those SMC officials who provided No Objection Certificates (NOCs) to the owners of the commercial complexes that Corporation has sealed from past many days.
Qasba said that it was a serious matter and there were proper court orders to identify these officials who are part of the nexus and allowed the people to raise illegal commercial complexes.
He said so far SMC has sealed 37 commercial complexes in Jawahar Nagar, Karan Nagar, Habak and Shalteng. Various other commercial complexes are on our radar and we are going to seal them as well.
In fact, we have issued show cause notices to the owners of various commercial shopping complexes and those complexes would be sealed as well, Qasba said.
He denounced these allegations that SMC is selective in the drive. It is not a pick and choose process. We are following the Court directions and all those commercial complexes would be sealed which have been raised illegally and without seeking our permission, he said.
