GHAZIABAD: The Ghaziabad Development Authority (GDA) has undertaken a survey in the city to identify plots where allottees have gobbled up more land than what had been legally handed over to them at the time of possession.

The survey has been ordered by the Authority after it was brought to its notice that crores are being foregone in the city as a result of encroachments made by plot owners. 

Authority officials said if the total area of land encroached by allottees around their plots is summed up it would run into several hundreds of acres. "Small parcels of land have been encroached upon by allottees in several areas of the city. The encroached areas would be identified by taking fresh measurements of the plots. We are working on a proposal to regularize these areas by handing them over to the allottees at a certain cost," said Ravindra Godbole, secretary, GDA. 

As part of the regularization procedure, allottees will be asked to compensate for the encroachments by paying a certain penalty along with the cost of the land. "For encroachments up to a certain extent, the costs will be calculated at the old rates at which the allotment had been originally made. For encroachments beyond this limit, the costs will be calculated at the market rate of land in the particular sector. The entire calculation procedure is being worked out and is under consideration," Godbole said. 

The GDA said that following the survey, allottees would be served a notice in which a deadline would be set to regularize the encroached portions by paying costs and penalties. If allottees fail to make payments within this time period, the Authority will forcibly take over possession of the land occupied illegally.
