Officials of the district administration on Thursday retrieved public land from the illegal possession of a well-known private school, in Sector 62 near Ullawas.
The officials’ team demolished the boundary wall of the school.
The officials said the school had encroached upon about an acre. When the case of illegal occupation of Ullawas panchayat land by the school was brought to the notice of the Gurgaon deputy commissioner PC Meena, he ordered block development and panchayat officer Pradeep Ahlawat to remove the encroachment.
On December 7, a notice, under Section 24 (1) of Haryana Panchayati Raj Act 1994, was issued to the school. The school authorities were asked to vacate the land within a week. But the school did not respond. The demolition team recovered the land and handed it over to the Ullawas village panchayat.
According to the officials, efforts will be taken to protect the land.
Deputy commissioner PC Meena confirmed that the school had grabbed the public land.
The deputy commissioner decried the attitude of the school authorities. He asked the officials to be vigilant.
“Schools are supposed to impart moral lessons to the children. It is unfortunate that officials of educational institutions are indulging in such activities.”
According to the district administration officials, if land belonged to any panchayat is grabbed, then it is the duty of the block development and panchayat officer (BDPO) to remove the encroachments.
However, in other notified areas, the district town planner (enforcement) has to do the job.
