This query is : Resolved
My mother purchased a flat in 2nd floor of a building under construction with sanctioned plan for 4 storey building received from Siliguri Municipal Corporation.The owner did not build further floor,stopped construction and due to incomplete,untreated and unprotected roof structure my mother's flat suffered severe damage to walls beams and ceiling structure of the flat due to excessive seepage of water from the roof creating health hazard. We are filing a consumer case. At the same time we feel the corporation needs to take penal action against owner for not completing building as per plan and not taking revised sanction for present 3 storey building showing appropriate provision for roof treatment and structure for stability and safety of residents and completing construction according to revised plan.Under what rules can we take the corporation to task to goad it to take penal action against the owner.What penal actions corporation can take.
