A new shopping complex in the heart of Bali's capital of Denpasar is under fire from the municipality's administrators for unpaid taxes and violations of local building codes. The Denpasar Junction Mall (DJM) is a large, modern shopping facility constructed by PT Eka Jaya Agung on Jalan Teuku Umar on a 900 square meter parcel of land leased from the Indonesian postal service.
An outstanding tax bill of more than Rp. 200 million (US$20,000) has caused local tax authorities to post a signboard at the Mall's entrance to publicly remind H. Ekco Sukadi, the operator of the Mall, to meet his tax obligations.
In a separate case, Denpasar zoning and building authorities claim the DJM was built not in accordance with its approved site plans and, as a result, now exceeds the maximum building height limit of 15 meters. And, despite repeated promises by the developer to reduce the building's height, the structure continues to be in violation of the rules.
The General Manage of DJM, Yoze Eman, has told the press that the zoning regulations and parking sace shortfalls will be remedied within the 2 week time limit given by municipal authorities.
