New Delhi: Continuing its drive against illegal structures, MCD on Wednesday sealed 20 buildings and demolished unauthorised portions of 29 properties in north-west and east Delhi.

In Shahdara (South) Zone, where a house collapse killed 71 people last month, demolition action was taken against 22 properties in Farsh Bazar, Pandav Nagar, Shashi Garden, Gandhi Nagar and other areas.

MCD also sealed 17 properties in Pandav Nagar, Mandawali, Laxmi Nagar and Gandhi Nagar areas in east Delhi and three properties in Dwarka and Palam Extension in Najafgarh Zone.

The civic body has been conducting special drive against unauthorised constructions in Shahdara (South) Zone, taking action against over 150 properties there in the last one week.

Officials of the corporation demolished unauthorised portions of seven properties in Najafgarh Zone -- in Jamini Park, Ranaji Enclave, Main Jharoda Road, Vasant Kunj, Sagarpur West, Geetanjali Park and Nilotthi.

The MCD has put renewed focus on curbing unauthorised constructions after a multi-storeyed building with two illegal floors collapsed in Lalita Park in Laxmi Nagar on the night of November 15, triggering criticism against the civic body for failing to check mushrooming of illegal buildings in Delhi.
