Eight years…Muhammadali is still walking for building permit

N. Muhammadali from Nankunnath, Pattarthodi, Payyanakkal in Kozhikode has become a victim of bureaucracy and what he says the inefficiency of the Calicut Corporation. He has been approaching pillars to post for justice for the last eight years. However, his application for getting a residential building permit has been neglected ,mercilessly.

Now, this is the eighth year Muhammadali is continuing his effort to get the plan, approved. The construction work was halted long back  and he and his joint family stay in this incomplete structure by shielding the building with  aluminium and tarpaulin sheets.

Once rain comes, the life becomes miserable because this house is quite near to the Payyanakkal beach.

Muhammadali applied for building permit in 2007.It was rejected by the officials, stating that the land lies in the proposed coastal road.

At the same time, another person got building permit   in the  neighboring plot with the same resurvey number. The plan was approved for constructing a three storied building.

Muhammadali says it was a mini flat and rented out for families,already.

Muhammadali was surprising what was the reason behind the refusal  since the neighboring land with the same survey number got easy approval.

“When I inquired, the nearby building owner told me, “I have spent lot to get this approval.”

A shocking Muhammadali again approached the concerned officials.

When he asked the officials what was happening to his application when his neighbor’s flat construction was easily approved, they told him; “You need not mind other’s application”

 

His application for  residential building permit has been rejected by the authorities by stating that the proposed coastal road passing through this way and he had not mentioned the road expansion in his master plan.

Meanwhile, Muhamamdali secured a certificate from the Land Acquisition Tahsildar that his property  was not included in the coastal road project.

It reads like this:

“This land belongs to survey number 2/296, does not include in the land acquisition of Kothy-Pallikkandy approach road.”

The certificate was issued on December 30, 2011.

However, the corporation authorities gave him a contrary certificate, saying that the land was included in the coastal road project.

He didn’t stop his effort for justice.But,the response from the department was that he should go to Thiruvananthapuram to clear all documents.

“I have lost lot of money and time, so far.” says Muhammadali .

His wife, mother, children and grand children stay in this incomplete building.

But, Corporation Councillor N.Avaran who represents this locality has another version.

He says that there are around hundred families live in this Payyanakkal, Kappakkal areas without building permits and all have to leave when the evacuation process begins for the proposed coastal road.
