On Friday South Delhi Municipal Corporation (SDMC) carried out a sealing drive in Kishangarh village. More than 50 commercial establishments, comprising 200 shops, offices, showrooms and hotels were sealed.
The sealing drive has been initiated against these establishments for illegal use of DDA land for decades. South Corporation had recently sealed over 70 shops in Chhatarpur area for misuse of agriculture land for running commercial activities, SDMC officials said.
According to a senior SDMC official, “DDA had conducted the drive while SDMC was assisting them in the sealing operation. The shops were violating the provisions of Master Plan 2021 by illegally using public land for running commercial activities. Though we faced some resistance, the drive was carried smoothly later.”
A number of banquet halls, hotels, workshops, offices, buildings and showrooms of TATA, Ford, Mitsubishi, Hyundai and Maruti Motors were sealed, said an official.
