LIT to act tough with bylaw violators
Tribune News Service

Ludhiana, August 18
The Ludhiana Improvement Trust (LIT) has decided to act tough with the violators of building bylaws in the colonies owned by the trust. The trust will be issuing notices to the residents using residential building for commercial purposes.

This was unanimously decided in a meeting of the LIT attended by the trustees and the Chairman, Mr Ashok Singh Garcha. Mr Garcha said no violator would be spared and the trust would ensure that no commercial activity took place in residential areas.

The meeting was going on till the filing of the report as it started in the evening. The trust also approved the proposal by the Income Tax Department that had demanded 3 acre to build houses for employees of the department.

The trustees decided that the land would go to a government department only so they had no objection in selling the land on a reserve price to the department.

In another decision, it was decided that all pending developmental works like laying of roads and cutting of more residential plots would be taken up on priority. Another major project - City Centre - has again been postponed till the next meeting of the trust.
