Revive Encroachment Monitoring Body: RWA

The Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) has failed to control illegal construction and encroachments, says a resident welfare association (RWA) in east Delhi, who has written a letter to the Lieutenant-Governor and sought his intervention in this regard.

The RWA has urged the Delhi High Court and the Union urban development minister to revive the high court monitoring committee, as illegal construction and encroachments have increased manifold even after the assurances given by the MCD and DDA.

The Delhi High Court had appointed a monitoring committee to keep a check on illegal construction and encroachments in Delhi. The MCD had got the committee suspended after assuring the high court that it will not allow any illegal construction to come up. Every fourth house in Delhi is being reconstructed illegally. Fourth floor is being allowed to come up despite the Supreme Court judgement on the issue still pending," said Anil Bajpai, president, RWA federation (east Delhi).

The members said the MCD had turned a blind eye to the rapid increase in illegal construction.
