Case of Regularisation of unauthorised colonies
GOVERNMENT SHOULD ISSUE WHITE PAPER AND TELL IN HOW MANY COLONIES REGISTRATION OF SALE DEEDS AND LAYOUT PLAN APPROVAL WILL BE STARTED – VIJENDER GUPTA
New Delhi, 8th December. BJP Delhi Pradesh President Shri Vijender Gupta has demanded the Chief Minister that she should issue a white paper on the condition, future and regularisation of all the unauthorised colonies. Government should also tell that in how many colonies out of 895 unauthorised colonies registry of sale deeds and layout plans approval will be started.
He told that the Lt. Governor of Delhi Shri Tejendra Khanna has approved the proposal of Government dated 7th December for the purchase/sale of the properties in the colonies notified by the Government. Lt. Government has not clarified whether the sale/purchase in all the 895 colonies will be started or only in some of these colonies which are on private land and for which there is no legal hurdle.
According to Government sources 312 colonies out of 895 declared regularised have come up on private land. These colonies have been divided in four categories. First category is of those colonies which are fully on private land and there is no legal hurdle. The second category is of those colonies for which Delhi Government has issued notification of acquisition under Section – 4 and Section – 6 of Delhi Land Acquisition Act. Third category is of those colonies in which land have been acquired by the Government but the farmers have not accepted compensation for acquisition of land.
Fourth category is of those colonies which have come up on agricultural land and the land is of that category in which agricultural activity has not taken place for long time and the land has become part of Gram Sabha land. The land acquired by the Government for which farmers have not accepted compensation will have to be de-notified under the Land Acquisition Act and only after that of sale/purchase will be started. This way, it is obvious that sale/purchase of land in only 50 colonies may be started. Not only this, these should be colonies which have come up on fully private land and for which there is no legal hurdle.
On the other hand if one goes by the amendment of the master plan then the Central Government has already decided to acquire all the lands in the authorised colonies and allot them to the private builders. According to this decision, the private builders shall construct multi-storied buildings and shopping malls and sell them. If this happens then the poor people will face great difficulties. The dream of poor people to have a house of their own will be shattered. They will have no option but to return to their home state after losing their land in Delhi.
