Civic bodies told to furnish details on road notification

| | New Delhi

As the issue over notification on 351 roads in Delhi for commercial or mixed-land use heats up, Urban Development Minister Satyendar Jain on Friday said the three municipal corporations will soon furnish necessary details to take the matter forward.

The Mayors of North, South and East Delhi Municipal Corporations agreed on this after meeting Jain here.

“We have asked proper paperwork from the corporations to check compliance with the Master Plan of Delhi norms. I asked them to submit it in two days but they (mayors) said, they will submit it by January 22,” the Minister told reporters.

The three civic bodies and the Delhi Government have been locked in a war of words over the issue.

Jain said, “The Government wrote five times to the three civic bodies in the last two years but practically no response has been received from them.”

The Minister on Thursday had sent a letter, mentioning “lack of response” from them. The civic bodies have been saying that the notification has been “pending with the Government”.
