'Delhi govt delaying registration of unauthorised colonies'

'Delhi govt delaying registration of unauthorised colonies' New Delhi: North Delhi Municipal Corporation Standing Committee Chairman Yogender Chandolia on Tuesday accused Delhi government of delaying the registration of unauthorised colonies developed on private lands.

"The issue is being delayed keeping the forthcoming (Delhi) Assembly elections in mind," Chandolia said in a statement.

As per building bylaws, unauthorised colonies developed on private lands where ownership or possession lies with the owners by way of power of attorney, registered deed or as per agreement to sale, such kind of map should not be approved.

In such condition, owners must pay conversion and other charges to the agencies concerned and thereafter No Objection Certificate (NOC) is issued.

"The Delhi government is evading this fact. So this would be additional burden on the unauthorised colonies residents," he said.

He demanded that the registration be immediately started and these colonies be handed over to the Municipal authorities for providing proper civic amenities.
