A team of the Department of District Town Planner DTP (enforcement and vigilance) pulled down 52 illegal constructions which had come up in three unauthorised residential colonies spread on eight acres in the revenue area of Bhupani village in the district today.
DTP Rajender Sharma, who led the demolition drive, said the constructions razed today included three built-up houses, two under-construction houses, a dealer office and one commercial and 45 DPC (damp proof course) and boundary walls in the area. Legal action had been launched against those who had carved out the plots and had sold the property in contravention to the rules and regulations, he said. Road, paths and electric poles erected in the area were also pulled down.
Over 600 residential, commercial and industrial illegal structures have been demolished in the drives carried out in various parts of the district since June this year. The DTP Office has also put up notices in various parts of the district asking residents not to buy plot or land without NOC from the department concerned.
