Haryana Government to Identify Illegal Structures in Aravalis
29/07/2021 , by , in News/Views

The state government, along with the Faridabad district administration, has started the groundwork to identify illegal structures in Aravali forest areas. “We started the groundwork on 27th July and will be able to map out a plan within three days for identifying illegal structures in the Aravalis by a survey. A timeline will be marked for the survey. We are currently working on the logistics, manpower and mapping. The survey will map all kinds of illegal structures in the Aravalis, not just farmhouses,” said Raj Kumar, the Faridabad district forest officer. 

After the survey is conducted, the district administration will first send out notices to owners of the illegal structures. The notices will include an appeal to the owners to demolish the structures on their own and will state that in case they fail to do so within a fixed timeline, the administration will raze the structures.

Haryana state information commissioner (SIC) Arun Sangwan had also recommended that the civic bodies of Gurgaon and Faridabad form a committee to ascertain the ownership of the farmhouses in the Aravalis. The commission had directed the financial commissioner (revenue) that a committee consisting of the district forest officer, district town planner, district revenue officer, executive officer and municipal corporation officials be formed in the two districts to ascertain the ownership of the farmhouses in the Aravalis falling under their jurisdiction, and the panels submit their reports within two months.
