Chandigarh Civic Body To Launch Action Against Encroachment
After the Punjab and Haryana High Court (HC) said encroachments from the government land be removed as early as possible, the municipal corporation is set to launch action against illegal constructions in Chandigarh, Panchkula and Mohali.
For a planned intervention, the civic body is planning to visit each household to survey the situation and file a report on the action taken, as mandated by the HC. The first report in the matter is expected to be presented by December 20.
The civic body plans to kick-off these house-visits starting with Sector 19, and thereafter moving to other residential and commercial localities. Details of the house, total area of encroached land and related information will be collected by the corporation officials.
As of now, the plan is to identify such encroachments and issue notices to the residents. After this, encroachers would be given sometime to remove the encroachment, failing which action would be initiated. Most violators in such cases have been extending their balconies or gardens causing problems for those who intend to park in government-designated spaces.
