EFFORTS HAVE begun at the Kanpur Development Authority on war footing, to be ready with all relevant documents in view of the Vidhan Parishad committee scheduled to visit the KDA on April 17. The officials are burning midnight oil to ensure everything is in order.
The committee formed to inquire into irregularities in various nagar panchayats, corporations, mahapalikas and development authorities, besides suggesting remedies, is expected to ask for any detail.
In all likelihood, the committee would look into the number of illegal structures, besides action taken on encroachments by the KDA. The committee would also look into approval of proposed building maps, both the commercial and residential. Cases from 2003 would be looked into.
The committee would also look into the number of contracts given by the KDA engineering section in the past four months, besides investigating how many maps of builders have been passed by the KDA in the past few months.
The committee would also look into the action taken on the vigilance inquiry against KDA officials.
The committee would also look into facts of how many allotments were made in the Tatya Tope Nagar Phase II scheme. How many people have got compensation would also be looked into.
The committee members were also expected to see through as to how many plants have dried at the Ekta Park, besides checking on the number of people whose maps have been approved under the one-time compounding scheme and how many registries have been done till date.
However, it’s not only the heaps of documents which trouble the KDA officials but the fact that the Vice-Chairman Deepak Kumar would also be on election duty in West Bengal when the inquiry panel comes visiting.
According to senior officials, it would be very difficult to speak or commit something on policy matters in the absence of the V-C.
