Of the 108 unauthorised colonies in the district, not a single coloniser has come forward to apply for regularisation.

The district administration is upset at this and has set a deadline of October 4 for the colonisers to get approval. In case the deadline is not adhered to, an FIR would be lodged against the defaulting parties.

Deputy commissioner Ravi Bhagat held a meeting and it was decided that apart from an FIR, power, sewerage and drinking water connection of such unauthorised colonies would be snapped.

"If any coloniser fails to get the colony authorised, the plot holder can also get his plot approvedby paying a nominal fee. In case neither the coloniser nor the plot holder completes the required process, the construction on the unauthorised plot will be erased," the DC said.

"I have instructed all revenue officials to make available the required documents to the colonisers and help them complete all the formalties. So far, have not got any response," the DC said.

The colonisers are required to pay anything from Rs 1 lakh-5 lakh as per the size of the colony to get authorisation. Kotkapura tops the list of unauthorised 57 colonies followed by Jaitu with 35 unauthorised colonies. There are 16 such colonies In Faridkot town.
