New Delhi, Apr 29 (UNI) Delhi High Court today allowed the State Government to provide sewer facilities to private as well as other unauthorised colonies in the Capital.

A division bench comprising Justices A K Sikri and Rekha Sharma allowed the Delhi Government to go ahead with its previous orders passed on August 1998, in which it had allowed to provide basic amenities like water, sewer, electricity and others to unauthorised colonies.

Ms Zubeda Begum, Lawyer for the Delhi Government, today sought the permission of the bench to implement the 10-year-old court order.

The Government was making policies for regularisation of these colonies till now, which caused the delay, Ms Zubeda contended.

''As the Government has decided to regularise the colonies, we seek your permission again to implement the previous order,'' she told the court.

Mr Sanjay Katyal, Lawyer for the Urban Developement Ministry, told the court that all modalities to regularise these colonies have been drafted by them and handed over to the DDA and they may proceed for developement of these colonies according to its guidelines.

The bench clarified that their order shall in no way come in the regularisation of the colonies.
