Only those unapproved colonies or buildings constructed before April 1 will be considered under the policy. This would be a big relief to about 5,000 colonies and 0.2 million individual plot-holders or building owners across the state . The Punjab cabinet yesterday approved the policy for regularisation of unauthorised colonies and buildings under the Punjab Laws (Special Provisions) Act, 2013. Only those unapproved colonies or buildings constructed before April 1 would be considered under this policy. Disclosing this here today, a spokesperson of the Chief Minister's Office said this would be a big relief to about 5,000 colonies and two lakh (0.2 million) individual plot holders or building owners across the state. The policy focuses on bringing all unauthorised colonies/buildings into the planning framework and to regularise development, which would further facilitate the smooth implementation of master plans across the state to ensure urban development in a holistic manner. Apart from this, another aim of the policy is to provide basic civic amenities to residents of these areas and improve the circulation pattern of the streets/roads, thereby checking the trend of haphazard growth.
The said policy would stipulate provisions to compound offences made under the Punjab Regional and Town Planning and Development Act, 1995, the Punjab Apartment and Property Regulation, Act 1995, the Punjab Municipal Corporation Act, 1976, the Punjab Town Improvement Act, 1922 and the Punjab Municipal Act, 1911. The policy would be applicable for one year from April 1 to March 31, 2014, in the entire state. Only those unapproved colonies or buildings constructed before April 1 will be considered under this policy. This would be a one time opportunity given by the government to colonisers and plot holders to get their offence compounded and regularised and to improve amenities in these areas. This entire process would be completed by March 31, 2014. The colonisers are required to pay composition fee for compounding their offences, under this policy. The fee would vary from area to area for the colonies developed before and after August 2007. The approximate rates of composition fee vary from Rs 2.5 lakh to Rs 15 lakh an acre. Similarly, the individual plot/building owners could come forward for regularisation of their plots/buildings by paying regularisation charges, which vary from Rs 50 to Rs 500 per square yard. The money so collected would be used for providing basic amenities in these colonies.
