BHUBANESWAR: The state government has decided to provide six vehicles to Bhubaneswar Development Authority (BDA) to check encroachments on vacant government lands. This will also help in quick detection of violations, official sources said.

Odisha Industrial Infrastructure Development Corporation (Idco) has been asked to provide the vehicles to the demolition and enforcement squad of the BDA.

The government has also decided to put up display boards on 500 vacant plots. "The boards will help the squad identify 'usurped' government lands. It will also act as a deterrent for encroachers," said a government officer.

Official sources said Rs 4.72 crore has been sanctioned for barbed fencing of vacant plots. BDA's engineering wing will take up the work. "The general administration department has identified lands for fencing," said a BDA officer.

Last year, the government asked BDA to construct boundary walls around government lands. The process of protecting such lands began in 2012 and 50% of these have been fenced, sources added.
