Complying with the directions of the Punjab and Haryana High Court, the district administration has banned new constructions within 900 meters of IAF ammunition depot here and warned of strict action against any such activities in the prohibited area.

If any new construction is found, it will be demolished and an FIR will be registered against the defaulters, deputy commissioner P C Meena said.

He said that the government departments would also not take up works in such unauthorised areas.

"From now onwards basic amenities like drinking water facility, sewerage and storm water drainage would not be provided in the unauthorised areas," Meena said.

The deputy commissioner on Saturday constituted a joint patrolling team to keep an eye on the illegal constructions in the notified area.

The team consists of representatives of administrator HUDA, DCP West, SDM, Chief Engineer Enforcement of Municipal Corporation Gurgaon, DTP enforcement, and Executive Engineer PWD B&R and Director Air Force station.

Hundreds of residents of colonies located around the IAF ammunition depot had blocked the Atul Kataria chowk here early this month protesting against the administration's plans to demolish their colonies.
