Bill passed in LS extending relief to unauthorised colonies
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.
