New Delhi, Apr 20 (UNI) Delhi Urban Development and Public Works Department Minister A K Walia has asked the Delhi Development Authority to submit survey report on 228 unauthorised colonies that come within areas under their control.
While reviewing process of regularisation, Dr Walia expressed his deep concern over the lukewarm response of DDA in submitting report even after repeated requests made by the Delhi government and said non-cooperation of DDA was delaying regularisation of such unauthorised colonies.
The review meeting was attended by Principal Secretary (Urban Development) O P Kelkar, Deputy Commissioners and senior officers from DDA, Municipal Corporation of Delhi and Delhi Jal Board.
Dr Walia said Delhi government was keen to submit a comprehensive survey report to the Union government to enable it to initiate actual process of regularisation of 1432 unauthorised colonies where lakhs of people were putting up and were awaiting provision of civic services.
He directed DDA to expedite the process pending on their part and submit survey report within 15 days otherwise law abiding people of Delhi would put entire blame of delay on DDA.
The MCD had submitted status report in respect of built up area of 904 unauthorised colonies whereas it had yet to submit report in respect of another 156 such colonies. MCD was also finding it difficult to identify proper location of 146 colonies as per ariel survey of 2002.
Dr Walia had directed MCD to contact RWAs of these colonies for proper location of unauthorised colonies and completion of survey in respect of these colonies.
Deputy Commissioners had more or less completed survey in respect of status of land of unauthorised colonies. They had yet to submit report in respect of just 13 colonies out of 1432 colonies. They had promised to submit within a week's time.
Dr Walia had also instructed DJB to prepare an action plan for providing sewerage system in unauthorised colonies.
