Mayor Ashok Lahoti, during the second public hearing on Tuesday, directed officials to open the seal of all plots which are on less than 90-square-metre area and constructed illegally without leaving setbacks.
The seal will be opened within seven days after owners deposit the amount at JMC. At the public hearing camp which was organised for the second time this month, nearly 652 residents registered their complaints.
The JMC administration claimed that 156 complaints were disposed during the camp that lasted for three hours. It was informed that the number of complaints registered were less than the first camp.
This time, many residents also returned disappointed after their complaints were ignored by the administration. Pallavi Sharma, a resident Shastri Nagar who reached JMC headquarters with four family members for the second time, was furious after mayor did not take action on her complaint.
Sharma alleged that in front of her house, a public park has been encroached by constructing a temple. The encroachers are also booking the park for weddings to earn revenue. “Instead of giving directions to remove the encroachment from the public park, the mayor said they would only give permission to organize religious events. We would soon approach court as our plea has been ignored by the JMC authorities,” said Sharma.
