No one wishes to demolish his own newly constructed house. But Abdul Rub wants the very residential complex in which his flat is situated, to be bulldozed. Reason: The building at Chowdaiah Block in Hebbal has violations galore preventing the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) from issuing occupancy certificate to the builder and possession certificates to flat owners. The BBMP had permitted Syed Haseeb, developer of Elegant Elite residential complex at Chowdaiah Block, to construct basement, ground, first and second floors. However, the builder constructed two extra floors and left no setbacks, which was gross violation of the sanctioned building plan. Instead of agreeing to accept the flat he had purchased, Rub chose to fight a legal battle. He complained to the BBMP on the violations by the builder. Rub has partially succeeded in his mission as the BBMP served a demolition notice on the builder. Rub told DH that he has got D-1 flat on the ground floor of the building.
