CHANDIGARH: Estate Office officials who dealt with work or cases related to Elante Mall and other commercial buildings where glaring violations were found might face criminal charges coupled with departmental action in the next few days.

Sources said UT deputy commissioner-cum-estate officer Mohammad Shayin may recommend or himself go for registering criminal cases against employees who conducted physical inspections of the buildings, carried out measurements and prepared detailed report of the sites. This follows after two sub-divisional magistrates (SDMs) Kashish Mittal and Danish Ashraf and assistant estate officer (AEO) Rahul Gupta submitted their detailed report regarding building bylaw violations following their surprise inspections on Saturday.

All three reports mentioned violations of serious nature. "It has been confirmed that in many cases, original plans were not matching with constructed commercial establishments. Such experienced technical people can't just ignore such violations. Moreover, anomalies were intentionally overlooked. Strict criminal action may be taken against such errant employees soon," said a senior official of the UT administration. "Significantly, the plan approval committee of the UT that finally approved the plans clearly citied that rules have to be followed, a task of the Estate Office," he added.

KK Sharma, UT adviser, said, "This matter is of very serious nature. The deputy commissioner himself is looking at it minutely. Right now, I am not aware as he is still working on it",
