In February 2016, the state government had directed the MCG to take over the three colonies. Before the handover, the DLF had opted to fix the existing deficiencies instead of paying the MCG to do so.(HT image)

Keep illegal colonies in Gurugram in check by cutting power, Discom told

To prevent mushrooming of illegal colonies in the city, the enforcement wing of department of town and country planning (DTCP) is relying on a new strategy — they immediately share information about any illegal structure with the electricity department and stop issuance of a power connection.
As per the DTCP officials, it has been observed that wherever there has been a delay in issuance of power connections or where new power connections are not issued at all, there is a substantial decline in growth of unauthorised colonies.(Picture for representation)
