Development work in 895 unathorised colonies is affected due to tussle between the Delhi Government and Municipal Corporations of Delhi. No major development has taken place in these colonies after notification was issued by the government for regularization of the colonies.

The government seeks Rs 50, 000 for per acre development charges from Resident of Welfare Associations of the colonies that have come up on private lands. These are the lands about which the government had plan to acquire and notices were also issued to the farmers, but they were not given compensation amount, said Delhi BJP president Vijay Goel.

The Municipal Corporations empowered to make layout plan of these colonies. But they refused to do this as they were not in favour of charging Rs 50, 000 from property owners in these colonies, saying that it was private land. The people purchased this from farmers. It was basically agricultural land.

In 2008, the government had issued provisional regularization certificate, but, so far, not a single colony had been regularised. In 2009, Urban Development Minister A.K. Walia had said that the government had kept aside Rs 2, 800 crore under the 11th five year plan and about Rs 2, 700 crore had already been spent. But according to the CAG report, no basic amenities were provided to these colonies, he said. The government claims that illegal colonies have been regularized, but sale purchase is not being registered. This is basically a “mischief and a major scam” and it should be probed.
