In the past few months, Enforcement Department, Director Town and Country Planning Haryana (DTCP) razed several farmhouses constructed in the Gurugram, Sohna, Faridabad and other area of Haryana. There farmhouses were constructed without obtaining any specific permissions such as change in land use, building plan approval, etc. which causes harm to environment and development planning. Such demolition made the owners of the farmhouses circumspect of their investment in farmhouses.
Recently, DTCP notified a policy for setting of eco-friendly farmhouse dated September 17, 2021, bearing No. Memo No. Misc-57/2021/7/16/2021-ZTCP. Under the policy, parameters have been prescribed for issuance of change in land use for setting up of eco-friendly farmhouse in the agriculture zone of hyper, high, medium and low potential towns beyond 500 square meters from the urbanizable zone of respective development plans areas.
