Delhi's Master Plan 2021is under review and the DDA has already received 1,900 suggestions from residents of different areas in the three open houses it has conducted so far.
It was the turn of residents of central Delhi and New Delhi on Tuesday to air their views on how the MPD could be amended.
The open house saw attendance by a large number of traders, whose main concern was the lack of clear policy on sealed establishments.
Vinod Mathur, a resident of Tilak Road, said 76% of the buildings in the area are commercial in nature but the area has been earmarked for mixed land use. He suggested amendments should be made to announce such areas as commercial.
Traders from Karol Bagh said most buildings in the area are on lease, out of which lease of 80% buildings have ended. However, the lease is not being released and the properties are not being converted to free hold either.
Residents from the areas complained of congestion.
