Sub-divisional magistrate and will have members from the Delhi Police, Municipal Corporation of Delhi, Public Works Department (PWD) and Delhi Development Authority (DDA) will be spearhead to STF.
The SpecialTask Force, at the same time, will also keep a check on those properties where residents are carrying out illegal constructions, PWD minister Raj Kumar Chauhan said at Delhi Assembly today.
There are a total of 1639 unauthorised colonies waiting to get regularised.
“The Lt Governor has already given his approval (for the move) and formal orders will be issued within two days. The Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit had called a meeting last week to discuss the matter. In unauthorised colonies, building bye-laws have not been implemented and the SDM will have the right to grant permission to owners for carrying out repair or maintenance work legally,” Chauhan said.
“The orders will be come out soon but it will take some time for it to be implemented properly. After examining the order, if one finds there are any shortcomings then it should be conveyed to us and we will incorporate it in the policy,” said Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit.

  1. I submitted first application on 15.4.2011 but no action and no response. Thereafter on 6.6.2011, further submitted application along with photographs in SDM Office, Kalkaji but till 21.6.2011, I was told that they have forwarded applications to other agencies and cannot predict about the consumption of time for house repairing permission. The system as said is not easy but it is time consuming and difficult to obtain permission for house repairing in unauthorised colonies even to those who have already paid house taxes regularly. May the agencies concerned to grant permission within 20 days.

  2. it is good but what about unauthorized construction in said colonies which is located at gram sabha land or vacant land
