Registration of property in illegal colonies allowed

Delhi Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal issued direction to finalise boundaries of the 1,650 unauthorised colonies in the city, out of which, around 800 have been regularised by the Centre.

In a meeting chaired by the Chief Minister and attended by Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia along with all the concerned officials, it has been decided to immediately complete the process of fixing boundaries of these colonies using the latest scientific methods. Satellite and Total Solution Methods would be used for demarcation of boundaries.

“The government will seek reports on a regular basis from the concerned department and officials to monitor the boundary fixation work,” Deputy Chief Minister Sisodia told reporters.

The Chief Minister directed the Revenue department to fix the boundaries in these colonies as soon as possible. Once the boundary of a particular colony is fixed, registration of properties in these colonies will begin.

This will be followed up by sending the maps to the respective municipal corporations for preparation of layout plan and then to the Delhi Development Authority (DDA) for change in land use. The layout plan and land use change will simultaneously be taken up with the concerned authorities, but the registration of properties will not be delayed. The agencies for the demarcation of the boundaries have been identified. In total,  there are around 1,650 unauthorised colonies in Delhi. The cut-off date for eligibility for a colony is its existence from June 1, 2014 and for a building the cut-off date is January 1, 2015.

The Delhi government also has decided to start the registration of the properties, which are booked in the 12-Zones under the three MCDs. Every month, various properties (both residential and commercial) are marked as booked properties? by these authorities for violation of building by-laws, such properties were not allowed to be registered till now. However, the government of Delhi has now decided to open the registry of such properties. This will enable thousands of property owners to get their properties registered.
