Chandigarh, March 3

With the UT Administration turning a blind eye to encroachments, personal gardens have come up on vacant government plots in Sector 19-B.

Several residents have converted a huge chunk of vacant plots into personal gardens or lawns at the back of their houses. Acting at a snail’s pace on a complaint filed by a local resident, the Administration is busy forwarding the plaint from one department to another.

Now, the Tehsildar (Enforcement), Estate Office, UT, has written to the SDO, Estate Office, for necessary action in this regard.

The Tehsildar has referred to the complaint received from Vikram Kapoor, mentioning, “In this regard, it is submitted that the matter regarding the opening of illegal gates constructed in the backyard relates to your branch. It is, therefore, requested to take necessary action in the matter at your own level.”

According to the complaint, some residents have encroached upon the vacant government plots in Sector 19-B for their personal use as gardens. The residents have illegally constructed gates in the backyard that open to these personal gardens. The complainant has also attached the architect’s plan of the said houses. “It is pertinent to point out that no general public other than the allottees of the houses are allowed to enter into the illegal gardens. The photographs of the encroached land have been enclosed. The said residents have been issued the notice of misuse by the SDM (East) in December 2022, which is pending for a final decision,” said the complaint.
