Improvement trust fails to demolish illegal construction

Amritsar, October 14

A team of the Amritsar Improvement Trust (AIT) visited Ashok Vatiak School, near New Amritsar on GT Road, to take action against the illegal construction. In the absence of police assistance, the AIT team failed to demolish the illegal construction.

Barjinder Mohan, executive officer, AIT, said, “We took partial action on the school. They had constructed some rooms without taking building approval. The duty magistrate was not available due to farmer demonstrations in the city. Next time we will go with the police assistance to take the action”.

Suresh Sharma, an RTI activist, said, “The AIT has been serving notices to schools management but they are ignoring. We welcome the action of AIT.” — TNS
