Chandigarh, 18th July 2018: Whereas it has been made to appear to Sh. Ajit Balaji, I.A.S., District Magistrate, U.T., Chandigarh that there is an apprehension that anti-social elements may make their hideouts clandestinely in the residential/commercial areas of the Union Territory of Chandigarh. If suitable measures to prevent the same are not taken, the unlawful activities of these people can cause breach of peace and disturbance of public tranquility besides posing danger to human life and safety and injury to public property.
And whereas, Sh. Ajit Balaji Joshi, I.A.S., District Magistrate, U.T., Chandigarh, is of the opinion that some check is necessary on landlords/owners/managers of residential/commercial establishments so that anti-social elements in the guise of ordinary tenants, domestic servants & Paying Guests may not cause harm to the citizens and the immediate action is necessary for prevention of the same.
Now therefore, Sh. Ajit Balaji Joshi, I.A.S, District Magistrate, U.T., Chandigarh in exercise of the powers vested with him under section 144 of the Cr. P.C. do hereby order as on emergency measure that no landlord/owner/manager of residential & commercial establishments shall rent out any accommodation to any person, unless and until he has furnished the particulars of the said tenants, domestic servants & Paying Guests to the Station House Officer concerned. All the persons who intend to offer accommodation on rent shall inform in writing the particulars of tenants, domestic servants & Paying Guests to the Station House Officer concerned in whose jurisdiction the premises fall. Any breach of this order would invite action under section 188 of the Indian Penal Code.
This order shall come into force with effect from zero hours
