The Khattar government is set to “regularise” illegal constructions outside the municipal limits across the state.
On humanitarian grounds, it’s the primary aim of the state to provide minimum infra to ensure healthy living outside municipal limits. Manohar Lal Khattar, CM
The Haryana Management of Civic Amenities and Infrastructure Deficient Areas Outside Municipal Area (Special Provisions) Bill, 2021, was introduced in the Haryana Assembly today by Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar.
The Bill will pave the way for the provision of essential services, including water supply, sewerage, roads and streetlights, in any areas outside the municipal area declared as “civic amenities and infrastructure-deficient” by the state government.
Giving the rationale behind tabling the Bill, Khattar said it had been observed that colonies with deficient infrastructure were also situated outside municipal areas in various towns of the state.
The Chief Minister recollected that the state government had recently enacted the Management of Civic Amenities and Infrastructure Deficient Municipal Area (Special Provisions) Act, 2021, with an objective to provide essential services in the civic amenities-deficient areas situated within the municipal areas. Nearly 1,200 colonies are to be regularised though this Act.
