The Haryana Revenue and Disaster Management Department has issued directions regarding sale and purchase of property in unauthorised colonies.

Gurgaon has a total of 71 unauthorised colonies. The Municipal Corporation of Gurgaon has recommended regularisation of 47 such colonies to the state government. Sale and purchase of properties would become valid in these 47 colonies only after the state government regularises them.

While stating this here today, a spokesman said that orders of Punjab and Haryana High Court have been sent through a written communication to all divisional commissioners and deputy commissioners of the state.

He said that they have been asked to get a list of unauthorised colonies prepared and general public be made aware about these unauthorised colonies and public notice would be issued in two newspapers being published in vernacular language in the concerned areas.

The spokesperson said that pamphlets would be displayed at important places so that general public could be desisted from purchasing land in unauthorised colonies.

Sub-registrars and joint sub-registrars would face strict departmental or criminal action in case they register such properties. A team of officers consisting of sub-divisional magistrate, district revenue officer and stamp auditor would be constituted to do random checking of tehsils or sub-tehsils to ensure that no land in unauthorised colonies is registered.
