New Delhi: Delhi government Thursday said it has received no objection certificate (NoC) from all departments concerned for regularisation of over 690 unauthorised colonies in the national capital.

Finance Minister A K Walia said the government was expediting the process of regularising the unauthorised colonies as soon as possible.

"So far, NoC has been given to 692 colonies out of 1639 colonies," he told reporters.

Walia said DDA has objected to regularisation of 136 colonies while the Forest department has reservation in regularising 238 colonies.

He also said the Archaeological Survey of India has raised objection to regularise 121 colonies across the city.

In 121 colonies, government agencies have found that the built-up areas are less than fifty per cent while in 10 others it was found that there is no such area.

Asked about the delay in regularisation of the unauthorised colonies, he said the government has already spent Rs 2,700 crore to provide all basic amenities in them.

The Delhi Government had issued provisional regularisation certificates to 1,218 unauthorised colonies ahead of the Assembly election last year. The government has plans to authorise 1,639 colonies.
