New Delhi: Lok Sabha today passed a Bill to extend relief from sealing and demolition of unauthorised colonies in the capital till December 2010, a move which might come as a major relief for some Delhiites.

The National Capital Territory of Delhi Laws (Special Provisions) Second Bill seeks to extend till December 31, 2010, the special provisions made in view of sealing of commercial premises in unauthorised colonies.

The previous Bill was enacted in March 2009 and provided protection to encroachment or unauthorised development in various categories till December 2009.

The Bill was passed within minutes of being introduced by Urban Development Minister S Jaipal Reddy (Urban Development) amid a din as opposition benches protested against price rise.

The capital had witnessed considerable unrest following the drive against unauthorised colonies and encroachments in 2006-07.
