The police have booked three men for allegedly carving out an unauthorised colony on agricultural land in the district’s Alahar village.

On the complaint of District Town Planner (DTP) Amit Madholia, a case was registered against Chander Bhan, Lalit Kumar and Tarun, all residents of Alahar village, under Sections 3, 7 (i) and 7 (ii) of the Haryana Development and Regulation of Urban Area Act, 1975, at the Jathlana police station on February 18.

In his complaint, Madholia said the revenue estate of Alahar village was notified as the Yamunanagar-Jagadhri urban area under Section 7-A of the Act number 8 of the Haryana Development and Regulation of Urban Area Act, 1975. He said that as per provisions of the Act, no person could carve out a colony without obtaining a licence from the director of the Town and Country Planning Department. “Three persons have carved out an illegal colony and promoted unauthorised construction on agriculture land. They also constructed roads and carved out plots for residential or commercial purpose without obtaining the licence from the competent authority. They violated the Haryana Development and Regulation of Urban Area Act, 1975,” Madholia said.
