Giving yet another chance to the marriage palace owners, who are lacking in meeting with the guidelines to regularise their properties in the state, the Punjab Urban Development Authority (PUDA) has asked them to follow the norms, this time strictly. PUDA has re-notified the marriage palaces regularisation policy for the second time after it was first notified in November 2012. The PUDA in the guidelines has made it clear that such marriage palaces will be sealed whose owners fail to apply for regularisation and comply with the norms.
According to the PUDA officers, this policy will be applicable in Punjab including municipal limits for regularisation on of existing marriage palaces. However, for setting up of new marriage palaces the same policy shall remain operative till the final disposal of applications received under the previous policy and new policy.
According to the new notification, the owners of existing unauthorised marriage palaces who could not apply under the previous policy of the government notified on November 16, 2012 and January 7, 2013, can submit their applications to the competent authority within a period of two months from the date of notification of this policy.
PUDA Chief Administrator Manvesh Singh Sidhu said that state government aims at giving a second chance to the marriage palace owners who had earlier could not apply for the regularisation. “We have notified the guidelines with certain modifications so that the marriage palace owners can be encouraged to apply for regularisation. We have made it clear for a strict action in the norms upon failure or non-compliance of the guidelines,” said Sidhu.
