New Delhi: 31/03/2015
Fulfilling its election promise to provide much needed relief to lakhs of people forced to live in unauthorized colonies, the Delhi government on Tuesday announced its decision to start the process of regularization of these colonies.
In a meeting chaired by the Chief Minister Mr Arvind Kejriwal and attended by deputy chief minister Mr Manish Sisodia along with all the concerned officials, it has been decided to immediately complete the process of fixing boundaries of these colonies using the latest scientific methods. Satellite and Total Solution Methods would be used for demarcation of boundaries.
The government will seek a report on regular basis from the concerned department and officials to monitor the boundary fixation work.
The Chief Minister directed the Revenue department to fix the boundaries in these colonies as soon as possible. Once the boundary of a particular colony is fixed, registration of properties in these colonies will begin.
This will be followed up by sending the maps to the respective municipal corporations for preparation of layout plan and then to the Delhi Development Authority (DDA) for change in land use.
The layout plan and land use change will simultaneously be taken up with the concerned authorities, but the registration of properties will not be delayed. The agencies for the demarcation of the boundaries have been identified.
In total there are around 1,650 unauthorized colonies in Delhi. The cut-off date for the eligibility for a colony is its existence from 01.06.2014 and for a building the cut-off date is 01.01.2015.
The Delhi government also has decided to start the registration of the properties which are booked in the 12-Zones under the three MCDs. Every month various properties (both residential & commercial) are marked as ‘booked properties’ by these authorities for violation of building by-laws, such properties were not allowed to be registered till now. However, the government of Delhi has now decided to open the registry of such properties. This will enable thousands and thousands of property owners to get their properties registered.
Registration in unauthorized colonies and registration of booked properties were long pending demands of the residents of Delhi. The Delhi government has fulfilled its promise to take steps for the same.
