DELHI: The Delhi Development Authority (DDA) will soon track encroachment of its land online with real-time mapping through satellite.

"Work has begun on a digital real-time mapping through satellites. While we will be able to locate existing encroachments, this will help us prevent new encroachments," the new vice-chairman of DDA, Balwinder Kumar said today.

The DDA also said that out of about 79,000 acres of land under its jurisdiction, about 1,500 acres have been encroached upon, and the new technology will help it in protecting land.

"With the technology... the detailed mapping with location, DDA particulars, legal status will be accessible to the control room," Kumar said.

"We don't even know exactly how much of our land is encroached upon. This will help us track new encroachments before they go out of hand," he said.

Among other announcements, Kumar said the computerisation of documents have been taken up on a war footing, adding that the digitisation will help track existing and old files.

"Three thousand files would be scanned on a daily basis. This will also help us consolidate our records and assist in applicant's document reconciliation too," he said.

The new vice-chairman said he wanted to get closer to citizens and the measures were a step in that direction.

"We will be holding a five-day camp starting February 17 to expedite complete documentation and clear pendency in a speedy fashion. Like visa and passport applications, we will update our records at the site itself," Kumar said.

Among other announcements, he said rehabilitation of people in slum clusters in Kathputli Colony in West Delhi has been planned.

"Anand Parbat will serve as transit camps for the residents of Kathputli Colony before being rehabilitated in the flats coming up there. All 2,800 families will be rehabilitated to high-rise apartments there," he said.

"While eight towers will be built there, out of which 2,800 flats will be give to DDA, one 40-storeyed tower will be kept by the builder itself. The cut-off date will remain the same," he said.

The Kathputli Colony project, spread across 5.22 hectares, sees construction of 2,800 EWS (economically weaker section) units for squatter families.

On the Millenium Depot issue, Kumar said, the Delhi High Court has ordered DDA to look for alternative land and explore options but so far "we haven't been able to do so".

The DDA also presented its budget which has allocated Rs 2.43 crore for the Phase-I and Phase-II development and maintenance of Yamuna Biodiversity Park among others.

A sum of Rs 300 crore has also been kept for Delhi Metro's Phase-III work.

Jan 29, 2014
DELHI: The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) increased the repo rate on Tuesday. If the rise in repo rates does not lead to an increase in bank rates, it is a temporary measure to track inflation. If inflation goes down, RBI will, hopefully, reduce rates. If bank rates rise, it will impact the industry and economic growth will suffer a setback. Going forward, I hope RBI will not increase rates.
