The Delhi Cabinet on Thursday decided to take up development work in 1,018 of the 1,239 unauthorised colonies that were given provisional regularisation certificates just ahead of the 2008 assembly elections.

The Cabinet accepted majority of recommendations made by the group of ministers which was appointed to suggest a road map for development in illegal and resettlement colonies in September 2011.

The Cabinet also decided to finalise the boundaries of unauthorised colonies on the basis of the aerial map of 2007 instead of aerial map of 2002, which

will provide relief to a large number of unauthorised colonies that came up in the past few years.
