Municipal Corporation Act, 1956 - Ss. 299A & 308A - Municipal Commissioner has no authority to revise the purpose of construction, order permitting the construction at the stage of completion of such construction - The best course would have been to refer the matter to State Government with request to invoke the powers u/s. 299-A of the Act, 1956, on account of non- fulfillment of requirement of the scheme of Town and Country Planning Department - Secondly, without working out whether the construction has exceeded Floor Area Ratio (FAR), the order passed about demolishing the so called excess construction is also not in accordance with the provisions u/s. 308A, Part (b) of the Act, 1956.
