CMDA seals three buildings that violated rules in George Town

As per latest news, cracking the whip on illegal constructions, the Chennai Metropolitan Development Authority (CMDA) on Friday sealed three multi-storey buildings in George Town area.

While two of the the ground-plus-two-floor buildings that faced the axe are at Anna Pillai Street, the third is at Coral Merchant Street in Mannady. “These buildings got approvals for certain number of floors, but violated it during construction,” a CMDA official said. The sealing procedure was completed around 8.30am. While the two buildings at Anna Pillai Street were under construction the one in Mannady houses at least four offices that deal with shipping business. It is a five-storey structure with each floor having 3,000 sqft of built-up area. Employees who visited their offices were in for a shock as the building was shut for access.
