Haryana government has taken a big decision regarding illegal colonies. Now only colonies with proposals sent by RWAs (Resident Welfare Associations) will be legalised. The government is preparing to give exemption to ensure that the remaining colonies which do not meet the departmental rules are also confirmed. For this, the government has directed all the urban bodies to pass a resolution in this regard from the House by 31st December. Resident Welfare Associations have been formed in all the colonies and have been asked to send proposals. However, colonies that are converted from illegal to legal will have to deposit development charges.
According to the survey conducted in the state, there are a total of 2237 unauthorized colonies in the municipality area. As against these, the Haryana Government has so far received proposals to legalize a total of 1465 colonies. Of these, proposals for 1,399 colonies have been passed by the concerned civic bodies and sent to the headquarters, while proposals have been sent to confirm 66 other colonies through the Resident Welfare Association.
The government has ignored the proposals sent individually and directly by the municipalities, as a large number of colonies have been found where the colonizer has moved after cutting the colony, or where the RWA is yet to be formed. Could The government has decided that the proposals coming directly to the government will not be implemented, but the colony will be legalized on the resolution passed by the concerned civic bodies in the house and the proposal by the association of the concerned colony.
