NEW DELHI: In what could mean as another pre-poll relief to a large number of residents of unauthorized colonies, slum dwellers, street vendors, existing farmhouses and several other structures and constructions, the Cabinet on Wednesday approved the proposal to protect them from any punitive action including demolition till December 2017.

The Cabinet under c approved to extend the validity of Delhi Laws (Special Provisions) Second Act, 2011, which is expiring on December 31. The approved bill will be placed in Parliament for passage during this session. The Act was first notified in 2006 to protect such activities and built up areas from punitive action and it was followed by similar statutes annually. The last one was in 2011.

As per the existing Act, government has to come out with proper arrangements for relocation/rehabilitation of slum dwellers and slum clusters; regulation of street vendors; regularization of unauthorized colonies, villages located in the municipal limits, their extension and existing farmhouses. The structures and facilities such as schools, dispensaries, religious and cultural institutions, storages, warehouses and godowns built on agricultural land need to be regularized.

"Though progress has been made in evolving policies, norms and strategies for implementation of the Act, more time is needed to bring in orderly arrangements keeping in view the current ground realities in the capital," said an urban development ministry official.

He added that norms, policies and guidelines for unauthorized developments, regularizing unauthorized colonies need to be modified to bring them in conformity with revised Delhi Master Plan 2021. The review of the plan is likely to be over in early 2015.

"The objective of the three years' extension is not only to protect certain forms of unauthorized developments from punitive action in Delhi but also to provide opportunity to government agencies to finalize their norms," the official said.

Recently, both the urban development ministry and the Delhi administration had taken an in-principle decision to regularize unauthorized colonies.
