The Municipal Corporation of Faridabad (MCF) on Tuesday passed a resolution for regularisation of 67 unauthorised colonies in Faridabad.
The 35-member House met this afternoon and besides many other issues deliberated on the issue of unauthorised colonies.
Amid the din, the resolution for regularisation of the 67 unauthorised colonies was passed with almost all the corporators describing it as "a landmark step for overall development of Faridabad". This was the second time such a resolution was passed.
Last year, a resolution for regularisation of 77 unauthorised colonies was passed and sent to the state government for approval. But, officials said, the proposal was returned with some objections, forcing the civic agency to make fresh survey.
The proposal for regularisation of 67 unauthorized colonies will now be forwarded to the state government through Gurgaon divisional commissioner for final approval.
"Some unauthorised colonies form part of my ward, which I represent. The clearing of a regularisation proposal will certainly make life in these colonies worth living," said Rajinder Bamla, Corporator of Ward number four.
