New Delhi: Seventeen flats in Commonwealth Games Village in east Delhi, allegedly constructed in an unauthorised manner, will be demolished soon with the DDA issuing an order in this regard.

According to the Delhi Development Authority, the flats were constructed illegally in the upper basement of the Games Village and it has now sent a notice to private developer Emaar-MGF for carrying out the demolition.

"An order has been issued for demolition of the unauthorised constructions by the Director of DDA Building Department, who has quasi-judicial powers in this regard. As per the norms, the developer itself can demolish the illegal parts. If it does not do so, then the DDA will demolish the structures," a DDA official said.

The housing agency is yet to give completion certificate to the rest 1,168 flats in 34 towers. The developer firm has sold its share of 450 flats in rates ranging from Rs two crore to Rs five crore and is reportedly eager to remove the 17 unauthorised flats itself to speed up process of securing completion certificate.

However, before issuing certificate, DDA will have to check whether the construction of the Games Village was within the overall parameters of Master Plan for Delhi-2021 and the building by-laws in force in the city.
