New Delhi: Major irregularities have been noticed in regularising an unauthorised industrial area, spread in about 150 acres in the national capital, allegedly in connivance with certain Delhi government officials.

The bungling, which may worth crores of rupees, was pointed out in an inspection report submitted by one of the senior officials of Urban Development Department under the Delhi government who recommended a vigilance inquiry into the "blunder".

According to the report, certain Delhi government officials illegally gave Provisional Regularisation Certificate (PRC) to land in Shiv Vihar and Shahbad Extension, Part II for construction of warehouses and other commercial activities in the guise of residential colonies.

The report, on land bearing registration numbers 1304 and LOP-07/567 under the Shahbad Extension Part II consisting around 657 bighas (around 150 acres), said that the entire area consists of huge and largely built up industrial shades.

"These shades are of more than 2,000 sq mt in size, even some of them are of 5,000 sq mt of size. Undersigned was shocked to see that there is no residential area among these industrial plots/shades only workers were found in these areas...," Ravindra Singh Parmar, Deputy Secretary, Unauthorised Colony Cell of Urban Development Department, said in its report.

According to official data, there are 876 plots of 100 sq mt, 543 plots of more than 100 sq mt and 720 plots of more than 250 sq mt.
