New Delhi: The Government on Wednesday said it was hopeful of finding a permanent solution to the problem of sealing in Delhi by next year by framing new laws and policies.

Union Urban Development Minister Jaipal Reddy said the National Capital Territory of Delhi Laws (Special Provisions) Second Bill passed in the Lok Sabha seeks to extend till December 31, 2010, the special provisions made in view of sealing of commercial premises in unauthorised colonies.

"The Bill will provide relief to people of Delhi for one more year beginning January 1, 2010. By that time we will make some policies and laws to find a permanent solution to the problem," Reddy told reporters outside Parliament.

The National Capital Territory of Delhi Laws (Special Provisions) Second Bill was passed in Lok Sabha today.

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

Reddy said he was grateful to opposition parties for agreeing to pass the Bill to provide relief to the city.
