MCD issues public notice for de-sealing
The Municipal Corporation of Delhi, which had launched sealing drive in 2006 to chuck out illegal commercial establishments in residential premises, has now issued a notice for public convenience to file application along with affidavit for de-sealing of their properties.
The Minister of State for Urban Development Ajay Maken was responding to a query in the Rajya Sabha regarding what government was doing after Supreme Court’s direction regarding de-sealing of Delhiites’ properties and commercial establishments in the city.
He said the MCD in its notice has sought owners/occupiers whose properties are protected under the Delhi Laws (Special Provisions) Act, 2007 to file affidavit in the court to get the benefit of de-sealing process.
The notice has been published in all the leading dailies.
As per Public Notice issued by the MCD the following categories/ areas are eligible for de-sealing:
•Structures in unauthorized colonies, Village abadi areas and its extension which existed on the 31st day of March, 2002 and where construction took place even beyond that date and up to the 8th day of February, 2007.
•Existing farmhouses involving construction beyond permissible building limits.
•Schools, dispensaries, religious institutions, cultural institutions, storages, warehouses and godowns used for agricultural inputs or produce (including dairy and poultry) in rural areas built on agricultural land.
•Slum dwellers and jhuggi-jhopri clusters.
•Hawkers and Urban street vendors.
•MCD has reported that 815 applications are pending as on 15th April, 2008.
•MCD has issued instructions to all Deputy Commissioners to ensure expeditious de-sealing of the properties, if the requisite affidavit filed in support of application is in order and the premise is covered under the purview of the aforesaid Act.
The MCD earlier stated the process of identifying the structures to come under the domain of such order was the reason that the de-sealing did not commenced immediately after the Centre’s direction in this regard.
The Supreme Court has repeatedly chastised the government for not properly conducting the drive and after much hullabaloo the Court suspended the drive in public interest.
Earlier in February, the MCD after getting conditional sanction from the Apex Court issued a fresh public notice inviting applications for de-sealing properties in the capital along with an affidavit subjected to one-week duration.
The very first notice inviting applications from denizens to take advantage of the scheme after Union Urban Development Ministry was issued on February 9 directing local authorities to de-seal premises protected under the Delhi Laws (Special Provisions) act of 2007.
