Civic body to register fir against the violators of norms

 

 JALANDHAR: Cracking down heavily on the illegal colonies and encroachments in the district, the Jalandhar Development Authority (JDA) today demolished 19 illegal buildings near the Lovely Professional University on the outskirts of city.

On the directions of Chief Administrator of JDA Jitendra Jorwal, a special team of the civic body razed the illegal buildings in village Chehru, Mehru and others. The JDA team demolished these buildings after duly giving the notice to them for major violations of laws. On the occasion a heavy deployment of Police force was also made.

The Chief Administrator said that mushrooming up of illegal buildings would not be allowed in the district. He said that the JDA was also keeping strict vigil to check the coming up of such buildings and colonies. Jorwal said that as per the directions of the state government the JDA would take strict action against any such colony or building coming up in its jurisdiction.

The Chief Administrator said that the JDA has already set up a special regulatory authority to take stringent action against violators of law on one hand and strengthening its regulatory wing on the other. He said that a centralized complaint cell has been set up to register and maintain all complaints received telephonically or in writing.  Jorwal said that to ensure that this regulatory body works efficaciously the various officers of the civic body have been assigned specific subdivision. “We will soon get FIR registered against the violators for flouting the norms” he added.
