Own a gym, yoga or fitness centre? Here is why government may shut it down soon
The apex court panel has directed DDA vice-chairman, NDMC chairman and commissioners of the three municipal corporations to submit a compliance report by October 22, 2019.
The Supreme Court-appointed monitoring committee's recent order may bring down the shutters of all the fitness centres, including gyms, yoga and meditation centres established across Delhi, after August 12, 2008, as all these centres fell under the “other” category of land use under Delhi Master Plan-2021, said a TOI report.
These centres have reportedly come up in contravention to the DDA’s notification issued regarding the cutoff date for such establishments. The apex court panel has directed DDA vice-chairman, NDMC chairman and commissioners of the three municipal corporations to submit a compliance report by October 22, 2019.
In the wake of the SC appointed monitoring panel's directive, all such fitness centres currently running in violation of MPD-2021 have to be sealed, and the process, following due course of law, has to be completed by October 18, 2019.
The order reads that the monitoring Panel should be intimated in this regard by October 22, 2019.
In a similar order, the Delhi High Court on Tuesday directed the civic authorities to conduct "drone surveillance" for identifying unauthorised construction and fire safety issues in the Karol Bagh area of the National Capital.
A division of HC bench presided over by Justices Hima Kohli and Asha Menon directed the civic agency and the Delhi Fire Services to submit their report in this regard before the next date of hearing. The court observed how the building site plan will help when half of the buildings are unauthorised construction in the area.
The matter will again come before the court for hearing on October 14.
