The government of Delhi government is taking an in-principle decision to regularise all colonies which came up on extended Lal Dora land, providing relief to lakhs of residents in rural areas.
The regularisation of the colonies will enable residents to get their properties registered and carry out construction works following the approval of building plans.
The government has been mulling over abolishing Rule 81 of the Land Acquisition Act, which will mean that villages in the national capital would no longer be apprehensive of getting notices under the provision.
The Urban Development department would bring separate cabinet notes for regularisation of colonies in extended Lal Dora and limiting the use of Rule 81.
As per the present guidelines under the Act, agricultural land cannot be used for construction of houses and other purposes but removing of the restriction will provide leeway for construction of flats on those land.
Arvinder Singh Lovely, Urban Development Minister stated, “Delhi Government is committed to fulfil its promise in respect of regularisation of extended Lal Dora. For this purpose, a cabinet note would be prepared and produce before the council of ministers very soon.”
He further stated that a separate cabinet note will be brought before the Cabinet on restriction of use of Rule 81 of the Land Acquisition Act to facilitate relief to residents of the urbanised villages.
The residents of the villages have sought removal of the provision for not permitting the agricultural land for other purposes.
Lovely further maintained that the Revenue Department will be revising the compulsory needs for production of No Objection Certificate (NOC) on land status report for sale and transfer of properties in unauthorised colonies and extended Lal Dora.
