New Delhi: DDA has ordered a month-long anti-encroachment drive after an "increasing spate in unauthorised" constructions in its flats at Vasant Kunj area in south Delhi, the urban body on Monday said.
"Considering the increasing spate in unauthorised rooms and alterations being carried out by various allottees or occupants of DDA flats at D-6, Vasant Kunj, Vice-Chairman, DDA Balwinder Kumar, has ordered a month-long drive for sealing as well as removal of all such additions and alterations," DDA said.

In addition, construction of an additional room on government land has been done by some allottees of all the floors in a block.
The housing authority has advised all allottees or occupants to immediately remove these unauthorised constructions on the top floor or on the common portions of land failing which would invite penal action.
Actions according to provisions of the law include demolition, sealing of the flat, disconnection of electricity, water to the premises, among others.
