GURUGRAM: Intensifying action against illegal colonies in and around the city, the enforcement wing of the town and country planning department (DTCP) demolished six illegal colonies, spread over 15 acres of prime agricultural land.

During the demolition, people gathered at the site and DTCP officials appealed to them that they should not invest their hard earned money in such unauthorised colonies and should contact the office of DTP for any enquiry before buying a land/plot.

Tuesday’s demolition drive was carried out in Hayatpur and Sadrana, falling in the Gurgaon Urban Area under Sector 10A police station.

District town planner (enforcement) Manish Yadav said, “The demolition drive has been carried out successfully at three locations. An unauthorised colony, having an area measuring approx 4 acres in Hayatpur village, wherein two structures, boundary wall and an entire road network were demolished. Two more such colonies, having an area measuring approx 4 acres in Sadrana village, wherein an entire road network was demolished. Three other colonies, spread over an area of 7 acres in Hayatpur village, wherein 25 structures along with boundary walls, entire road network were demolished.”

According to officials, the offenders are using the gaps and carving out illegal colonies on prime agricultural land in violation of Haryana Development and Regulation of Urban Areas Act, 1975. Section 7A of the Act states that the registration of sale deed of a plot having a size less than 1 acre is not allowed without a no-objection certificate (NOC) from the DTCP.

Officials said the violation of the Act is a punishable offence with imprisonment up to 3 years, therefore, the department informed the police to stop the development of unauthorised colonies being done by the offenders and register FIR against them. In the last one month, eight demolition drives were carried out in Gurgaon, Sohna and Pataudi where illegal colonies were razed. The demolition team used earthmovers in presence of police force to raze more than 200 structures and seven farmhouses.

Before GRAP came into force in October 2023, DTCP had demolished around 50 illegal colonies spread over 550 acre prime land in and around the city. These colonies were situated in urban areas of Gurgaon, Sohna, Pataudi and Farrukhnagar.
