Architectural photographer Vijay Dharia has said no to building a house on the ground, according to reports.
Mr Dhar, who has worked in architecture for over 20 years, told NDTV he was asked to help construct a house by the owner of a property.
He said: “He said that he is not interested in a house that is not visible from the street.
We have to be visible from our property, otherwise we cannot be able to afford to live there.”
Architectural photographer Dhar’s comments come just a few weeks after a construction site in Delhi was demolished by the authorities for lack of permits.
The demolition came days after Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal’s government decided to scrap the Planning Commission’s recommendation for the building of a house at a site near the airport.
Mr Kejriwal had earlier said the government would not allow the construction of a home on the site, adding: “No place can be made invisible from our land.”
