At a meeting chaired by Prime Minister Narendra Modi, the Union Cabinet on Wednesday decided to give ownership rights to 40 lakh people living in national capital Delhi’s unauthorised colonies. The ownership rights will be given to inhabitants of houses in these colonies irrespective of whether the houses were built on private or government land, Urban Development Minister Hardeep Singh Puri said on Wednesday. The only exception, he said, would be 69 affluent, but unauthorised colonies such as Sainik Farms, Mahendru Enclave and Anant Ram Dairy.
