New Delhi: A day after regularising 895 unauthorised colonies, Delhi Government Thursday said sale and purchase in such settlements developed on private land will be allowed within a month while those on government land will have to wait a little longer.

Out of 895 colonies which were regularised yesterday, 312 settlements are on private land while 583 colonies came up on government land.
"Property transaction in 312 colonies which are on private land will be allowed within a month. We have already started the process for removing the hurdles. The residents will also be able to registrar the properties in their names," Singh said.
Residents of the colonies which are on government land will have to pay Rs 575 per square metre as land cost to the government besides penalties and development charges. The land cost for multi-storey buildings will be calculated as per number of floors, he said.
Lovely said penalties for a 100 yard plot will be 10 percent of the existing circle rate of the respective areas while penalty for plot size between 100 yard and 250 yard will be 25 percent of the circle rate.
For plot size above 250 yard, the penalty amount will be 50 percent of the circle rate. The Minister said all the colonies, including those which came up on private land will have to pay Rs 200 per square metre as development charge to the government for providing various facilities like electricity, roads and sewer lines.
"Once the fees are paid by the colonies, we will start denotifying government land and allow sale and purchase as well as registration of properties in colonies which came up on government land," he said.
