Catch-22 in Haryana

manohar lal vs builders

Catch-22-in-HaryanaTHE Haryana builder lobby and its facilitators are a worried lot. They are unable to figure out how to deal with Chief Minister Manohar Lal. Leading colonisers and builders have approached the Chief Minister’s Office many times for increasing the FAR (Floor Area Ratio) and change of land use (CLU) permissions over the last two years. The Chief Minister listens to them patiently but reportedly does not intend to move in that direction. Surprisingly, one of the top industrialists of the country pleaded with Manohar Lal to streamline his SEZ project so that he is able to bring `70,000 crore investment into the state. Representatives of the top industrialist have visited the Chief Minister’s Office many times but nothing is moving. Manohar Lal is facing a tricky situation as his predecessor, Bhupinder Singh Hooda, had envisaged the Master Plan of major towns till 2030. The property business is in a recession and an increase in FAR and CLU permissions can prove to be a respite for the colonisers, but Manohar Lal is in no mood to oblige, especially as most of the builders are known to be close to Hooda. Any action would mean indirectly benefitting Hooda. It is a Catch-22 situation, indeed.
