208 Illegal Colonies To Be Regularized In Ghaziabad

The state government has decided to regularize illegal colonies in Ghaziabad on the pattern of Jaipur Development Authority in Rajasthan. The policy would benefit 208 illegal colonies.
The UP administration has invited suggestions on the policy from development authorities across the state through a letter. A copy of Jaipur Development Authority’s policy is also attached.

The development authorities have to post their suggestions within 15 days. The state administration would regularize illegal colonies on priority basis.

Under the new policy, development authorities have been given more power so that regularization work could proceed speedily, said Ghaziabad Development Authority secretary Raj Kumar Sachan. The state’s approval has to be sought in trivial matters too. However, it is not mandatory in the Jaipur authority policy. The regularization tax is also comparatively less.

Development works can be completed after regularization of the colonies. Presently, development works under MLA and MP grant can only be undertaken here.

The Ghaziabad Development Authority will be able to execute its works after regularization is completed.
