The Nagar Panchayat or the Council may refuse to sanction the erection, material alteration or re-erection of any building either on the grounds affecting the particular building or in pursuance of general scheme adopted by the Nagar Panchayat or by the Council at a meeting restricting the erection or re-erection of building or any class of building within specified limits for the prevention of overcrowding or in the interest of the residents within such limits or for any other public purpose. Permission may also be refused in any case in which there is any dispute between the Nagar Panchayat or as the case may be, the Council and the applicant as to the title of the land on which it is proposed to erect the building until such dispute is decided.
