GURGAON: The Haryana Urban Development Authority is planning to start a month-long drive against violators encroaching greenbelts in the residential and commercial areas in the city. The decision in this regard was taken after a meeting held last week in which HUDA administrator Praveen Kumar instructed the officials to clear the greenbelts of encroachments.

“In the meeting the details of encroachers and a detailed plan for clearing greenbelts were discussed. In the some cases police help might be needed for registration of cases,” a senior HUDA official said. The biggest concern of the civic agency remains to be encroachment by commercial establishments. Greenbelts on several roads are being used for commercial purposes. On the either side of Golf Course Road dozens of ‘For Sale’ used cars remain parked throughout the day. In the past, HUDA has taken action against such violators but the officials are claiming that now cars found parked on greenbelts would be impounded.

The civic agency has registered FIRs against greenbelt encroachers in different sectors. “FIRs were lodged against a dhaba owner, used car shop owners and a plant nursery owner,” said another HUDA official. In order to rein in violators HUDA is also planning to rope in corporate companies to adopt greenbelts. “Corporate firms would take care of greenbelts close to their offices and would be allowed to put up signboards with their logo on the road dividers,” said the official.
