Circle rates will be increased for the second time within seven months
Government is increasing the circle rates only to benefit the land mafia - Vijender Gupta
After depriving the common man of his bread & butter due to corruption and price spiral now the anti people Congress Government of Delhi is going to crush the hopes of the people to get a roof over their heads. Just after seven months Delhi Government is going to increase the circle rates in the capital by 60 to 200 percent. Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit has approved this proposal of heavy increase in the circle rates. After this increase the minimum price of land in Delhi will be 30 thousand rupees per meter. Strongly opposing the proposal of Delhi Government to increase the circle rates, BJP Delhi Pradesh President Shri Vijender Gupta has appealed to the people of Delhi to start movement together with BJP to protest against the increase in the circle rates by the Government.
Delhi Government had increased the circle rates by 100% in February this year. It had created a new super rich category in the circle rates. The rates in this circle was increase from Rs. 43 thousand per meter to Rs. 1 lakh 25 thousand per meter. Due to strong opposition from the people this category was abolished. In Delhi the circle rates for the A-category colonies is 86 thousand rupees per meter. The minimum circle rates in H-category colonies is 13,800 rupees per meter. If the rates are revised according to the new proposal then the rate for A-category colony will be Rs. 1,72,000 per meter. It will not be possible for the common man to purchase land at such high rates. The dream of 49% of the people of Delhi to have a house of their own will remain unfulfilled. This will adversely affect the economic and social conditions of Delhi.
Shri Gupta further told that the Delhi Government is playing in the hands of land mafia. It is worried about the land and building mafia hence the circle rates have increased. 49% people of Delhi do not have houses of their own. Such people live in rented houses and spend 40% of their income on it. The house rent is also increased every year by the land lords in Delhi. During the last five years house rent have increased by three times. Those houses which were available at the rent of Rs. 3 thousand per month now the rent of these two room houses is 9 to 10 thousand rupees per month. Due to this the budget of the people have been disturbed because the income of the people have not increased. The entire earning is spent on house rent and food items. The education of the children and the health of the family have been adversely affected.
