NEW DELHI - The Delhi Development Authority (DDA) Wednesday informed Delhi High Court that it has marked a certain area in Sainik Farms in the zonal plan which would be permitted for residential purposes only and there was no proposal to regularise the entire colony.
The lawyer for the civic body told the court that a draft of the scheme pertaining to this proposal has been sent to the government for its consideration after which the area will get legal sanctity.
In view of the statement made by the lawyer who also placed a copy of the draft plan before it, the court adjourned the matter for Sep 9.
The court was hearing a public interest petition seeking directions to the government for appropriate action against people who have encroached on public land and illegally constructed luxury houses in the Sainik Farms locality in south Delhi.
The petitioner has also alleged that most of the residents in the area have erected high walls beyond the permissible limit and illegally extended the houses.
