1,300 illegal slums seek to be regularised

Chandigarh: With the Haryana government announcing that all illegal slum colonies across the state are to be regularised, the government has received nearly 1,300 applications for regularisation.

Minister of State for Urban Local Bodies Gopal Kanda said on Sunday: "The department has received proposals for regularisation of about 1,300 colonies in different cities of the state. A decision in this regard would be taken shortly so as to provide basic facilities in these colonies." Kanda said more than 28 per cent of the population in Haryana lived in urban areas and the government had given priority to their development.

The majority of the illegal slum colonies are in the national capital region (NCR) of New Delhi. Many of these are in the vicinity of Gurgaon and Faridabad cities. "Adequate funds would be provided to improve the financial health of urban local bodies and strengthen the basic amenities in urban areas. Development plans of 73 towns have been prepared so as to provide more basic facilities like roads, drainage, water supply and sewerage," Kanda said.

He said more than Rs16.95 billion (Dh1.34 billion) would be spent during 2011-12 for development of urban areas.
