New Delhi, June 27 (UNI) In a step that is likely to pave the way for speeding up of developmental works in unauthorised colonies in Delhi and provision of basic civic amenities to these areas, the Delhi Government will soon provide regularisation certificates to to 1639 unauthorised colonies that came up before March 31, 2002, Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit said today.
The decision follows the Union Urban Development Ministry and the Delhi Development Authority authorising the state Government to issue provisional regularisation certificates to unauthorised colonies which have completed pre conditions including submission of lay out plan etc.
''These colonies also include 149 unauthorised colonies which came up as extension to Village *Aabadi *and have not been notified as *Lal Dora* Extension and 84 left out portions of already regularised unauthorised colonies,'' the Chief Minister said at a press conference addressed by her jointly with Union Minister of state for Urban Development Ajay Maken.
The Chief Minister said the authorisation given by the UD Ministry to the state Government would pave the way for speedy completion of the regularisation process which in turn would benefit nearly 40 lakh people of these colonies with basic civic amenities.
Addressing the press conference where all the Ministers of the state Cabinet, several state Congress MLAs and the president of the Delhi Pradesh Congress J P Agarwal were present, Ms Dikshit and Mr Maken informed that as per gazette notification dated June 16, 2008, it became necessary for the residents of unauthorised colonies to complete formalities including submission of lay out plan to get them entitled for issue of a provisional certificate.
''The notification further makes the city-government bound to immediately complete development works including construction of roads, drains, laying of water pipelines and electrification of colonies in the stipulated time frame. The city-government is morally, socially and formally committed to complete this exercise to ensure start of issuing formal final regularisation certificates,'' Mr Maken said.
Ms Dikshit expressed the government's commitment to undertake and complete all on-going developmental works on a war-footing to enable it to issue formal final regularisation certificates to these colonies at the earliest.
