New Delhi: Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit on Monday issued directions to strictly follow laid down norms in regularising unauthorised colonies in the wake of a high-level probe finding massive irregularities in handing out provisional regularisation certificates to over 1,200 such colonies in 2008.

In a meeting, Dikshit was briefed about findings of the inquiry committee, headed by Divisional Commissioner Vijay Dev, which highlighted alleged nexus between land grabbers, Resident Welfare Associations and certain elements in concerned government departments to procure provisional regularisation certificates (PRCs) in violation of laid down norms.

Urban Development Minister A K Walia questioned certain findings of the probe committee and indirectly criticised it for not consulting officials of his department before finalising the report, sources said.

They said Dikshit told the Urban Development Minister to "strictly adhere" to the rules and laid down procedures in regularising the unauthorised colonies which were issued PRCs ahead of assembly polls in 2008.

Concerned departments have also been told to prepare report on the issue for submission with the Delhi Lokayukta who has issued notices to Delhi Government seeking all details about the procedure adopted for issuance of PRCs in 2008.

The sources said Urban Development Minister A K Walia explained about steps being taken to ensure that no ineligible colony, which has already been issued PRC, was regularised.

"We are following all norms and procedures laid down by Union Urban Development Ministry in regularising the unauthorised colonies," they quoted Walia as saying. The Urban Development department is the nodal agency for regularising the unauthorised colonies.
