NEW DELHI: In a series of anti-encroachment drives carried out between August and September, the south Delhi administration has retrieved gram sabha land worth more than Rs 100 crore from areas like Jaunapur, Asola and Ayanagar.

Officials said that the land will be used by various government departments to set up community facilities.

On August 6, a demolition was carried out in Jaunapur where eight bighas of gram sabha land, worth approximately Rs 15 crore, was retrieved. Another demolition in Maidan Garhi village, on August 20 saw recovery of 25 bighas of land worth Rs 35 crore. On September 2, eight bighas of land worth Rs 15 crore in market value was recovered in Chhatarpur.

The demolition was carried out, on directions of Delhi high court, after the administration received complaints of encroachment. On September 6, in a second demolition in Maidan Garhi village, 10 bighas of gram sabha land worth almost Rs 18 crore was freed from encroachment.

On September 8 and 11, demolition was carried out in Ayanagar village through which 18 bighas of land was recovered. A one bigha plot is likely to be allotted to the Department of Health and Family Welfare for construction of a dispensary. Two bighas of land was also retrieved in Asola village.

Officials said that there had been a massive increase in encroachment on government land after the increase in land prices in Delhi. The government is now constructing boundary walls around the retrieved plots to prevent re-encroachment.
