The sword of ceiling is hanging on a large number of properties in Sadar Bazar. According to the corporation, the monitoring committee of the Supreme Court has directed to survey the irregular properties and seal them with immediate effect. Under this order, the MCD has conducted a survey of commercial properties in Sadar Bazar, in which a large number of properties have been declared ‘miss use properties’.
The process of giving notice to them has been started by MCD. It was told by the MCD that after surveying the Sadar Bazar area, it was found that commercial activities are being carried out on a large scale inside the residential properties here. He was given time to show the papers, but he could not show the papers. After this, notice has been started to them.
MCD officials have taken a clear stand in this matter. They say that those who feel that they have been wrongly served notice from MCD can go to the court and challenge against the action of MCD. According to the MCD, on Thursday, 16 unauthorized properties were sealed on Gali Jatwara and Shivaji Road, which was strongly opposed by the traders of Sadar Bazar. The traders who came out on the road to protest got the support of BJP and Aam Aadmi Party leaders. There is every possibility of politics and heat on the issue of sealing.
According to the MCD, the sealing action has been taken on the directions of the monitoring committee of the Supreme Court. Senior MCD officials have said that it is not right to oppose the sealing of the road. Those who feel that the sealing action is unfair should oppose it legally. The sealing action will continue on the instructions of the monitoring committee.
