New Delhi, Apr 13 (UNI) Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit today assured residents of unauthorised colonies that the government has accelerated regularisation process of such colonies, saying that within a few months they would become integral part of planned development.
''It is matter of few months when most of the unauthorised colonies would become integral part of planned development, which would go a long way in making Delhi a better place to live in,'' she said while addressing a number of public meetings after dedicating four newly constructed Chaupals at Rampura.
Ms Dikshit said there would be no dearth of funds for planned development of unauthorised colonies.
''The government is committed to providing all basic amenities to the residents at the earliest... It would strive hard to provide clean water, sewer lines, electricity, roads and clean environment to enable residents to make them feel as honourable citizens of the Capital,'' she added.
''The term unauthorised colony would become part of past and residents would feel happy to start a new and comfortable life,'' she said.
The government has prepared a time-bound development plan, for which Rs 2,800 crore has been earmarked.
The Chief Minister said her government has always stood for the poor and vulnerable sections of the society and hence has decided to give a facelift to the unauthorised colonies where poor and other middle class families are putting up.
Four new Chaupals have been dedicated to the people, which have been constructed with an approximate cost of Rs 2 crore.
