SAS Nagar, January 10
Occupants of housing board’s flats were caught offguard when a demolition squad of the Punjab Urban Planning and Development Authority (PUDA) started removing encroachments in front of the houses at around 2 pm here today. By evening, 90 unauthorised structures were removed in front of the HE and HB category of the housing board flats.

An official of PUDA said a total of 320 flats of HB, and HE category were surveyed by the demolition squad. Earlier the PUDA staff, while removing encroachments in front of PUDA houses in Phase 1, had left the housing board houses due to non-availability of their architectural control maps.

“The drive was today started after we got the architectural control sheets”.

After demolishing 90 structures, the drive was stopped for the day as the Municipal Councillor of the area, Mr BB Maini, sought a day’s time to allow the residents to remove their structures.

The drive would continue tomorrow. An official of PUDA said the front boundary wall in front of the HL and HM category of houses was allowed.
