The district administration has asked the town planning department to remove all constructions in illegal colonies set up in villages near the city.
Gurgaon deputy commissioner PC Meena had handed over a list of such illegal establishments in six villages to the District Town Planner (Enforcement). The list also mentions the Khewat number, Kila number and the size of the illegal dwellings in those villages.
On Friday, several establishments were demolished in Garhi Harsaru and Gopalpur villages.
Most of the illegal colonies are being developed in Garhi Harsaru and Gopalpur because these villages are in close proximity to the city and developers make huge profit by selling houses in the area. Besides, illegal colonies are also being developed in villages such as Sadhrana, Harsaru, Kadipur, Basai and Garoli Khurd, the deputy commissioner said.
Meena also urged people not to fall prey to the developers who are involved in selling properties in illegal colonies. He said that various teams have been set up to keep a check on illegal construction activities and those living in such colonies would not have access to basic amenities like drinking water, sewerage system, road, schools and parks.
The administration has also banned registration of sale deeds of properties falling in unauthorised colonies.
No one can develop a colony or group housing society without having the Change of Land Use (CLU) licence from the Town and Country Department, Meena said.
