For this, the civic body has prepared a proposal and officials informed that a tender will be floated soon to hire a private agency. “We are going to float the tender soon to appoint an agency to survey and collect data of 294 unauthorised colonies in the city. The survey is aimed at identifying whether these colonies fall under MCG jurisdiction or not and whether they fulfil the criteria set by the state govt for regularisation of illegal colonies. We are acting on the directions of the urban local bodies (ULB) department, who recently asked us to do a survey and submit a report,” said a senior MCG official.According to the norms introduced by the state govt in Aug 2023, colonies with an approach road having 6m or more width and internal roads having 3m or more width, are eligible for regularisation.Chief minister Manohar Lal Khattar had recently announced regularisation of 264 illegal colonies across the state. Out of these, 173 colonies fall under the jurisdiction of the ULB department and the remaining are with the department of town and country planning (DTCP). Out of 173 colonies, 44 are in Gurgaon, five in Faridabad, three in Panchkula, two in Nuh among others. With the regularisation of these colonies, basic amenities like roads, sewage, water supply, streetlights among others will be provided to the residents living in these colonies. Govt has granted administrative approval of Rs 438 crore for the development of these colonies and has already released Rs 54 crore to start the work.
