Religious structure cannot be built on residential plot: Gujarat HC
Ahmedabad: The Gujarat High Court has ruled
that `religious` building cannot be constructed on land meant
for residential purpose without permission from a competent
authority of the Municipal Corporation.
The order was passed by Justice RR Tripathi last week
while hearing a petition of one Jagdish Dave living in
Vasantkunj Society here, objecting to a trust using
residential property in the society for religious purpose and
constructing a Jain temple on a plot in the same society.
Dave had moved High Court against Ratnayatri Aradhana
Bhavan Trust which was using sub-plot 42 of Vasantkunj
Society, where the petitioner resides, as `Aaradhana Bhavan`
(prayer hall) and constructing Jain Temple over sub-plot 46 of
the same society, without any permission or getting any plan
sanctioned from the AMC.
"The building which is constructed by obtaining the
permission for residential purpose, cannot be used as a
`religious building` unless requirements provided are
satisfied and permission is sought from the competent
authority of the Corporation," court observed in its order.
