  1. Good idea to fine them 10% per year.. they should be assessed property tax as well.

    1. 10% penalty also should compund by 10% each year (11% next year, 12.1% year next) along with a carrot to party refund of penalty if a fresh time bound commitment to complete construction and begin commercial activities is given.
      At the same time Govt must initiate proactive consultation with owners to have empathetic view on understanding issues and resolution going out of the way.
