Govt approves bill to prevent sealing of `illegal` buildings
New Delhi: Aimed at preventing sealing and
demolition of a large number of unauthorised structures in
Delhi, the Union Cabinet on Tuesday approved a Bill in this regard
to be introduced in Parliament.
The National Capital Territory of Delhi Laws (Special
Provision) Bill, 2011 seeks to maintain status quo in regard
to unauthorised colonies, including village settlements and their extensions, storages, warehouses and
godowns for farm produce besides some other categories.
The Bill also proposes to extend the relief to urban
Commercial establishments operating illegally in farm
houses and other places in nearly 400 rural areas and
urbanised villages of Delhi are expected to get a reprieve
after the enactment of the proposed Bill.
The Municipal Corporation of Delhi had restarted the
sealing and demolition drive in the capital after the earlier
ordinance expired on December 31 last year. The civic body was
bound by orders of the Supreme Court to resume the sealing of
unauthorised commercial properties.
