Chandigarh, Feb 27 (UNI) The Haryana government is in the process of amending certain municipal bye laws so as to make these more stringent on the pattern of Delhi to effectively check the spread of vector borne diseases.

This was revealed in a meeting of the state-level Malaria Working Committee presided over by Health Commissioner and Secretary Navraj Sandhu at Panchkula near here today.

Besides other provisions, the amendment in bye laws would make it mandatory for owners of residential or commercial complexes not to have any breeding spot for vector.

In fact, one would have to take anti larval measures right from the start of the construction activity, an official spokesman said.

Apart from reviewing the strategy to check the menace of four vector borne diseases-- Malaria, Dengu, Japanese encephalitis and Chikungunya--in the state, Ms Navraj Sandhu said the department of Ayurvedic, Yoga and Naturopathy, Unani, Siddha and Homoeopathy (AYUSH) would also be actively involved in this drive against vector borne diseases.
