‘Pay fee, get OK for illegal construction’

The residents of small flats in Rohini may soon be able to legalise unauthorised constructions after submitting a fee to the North Municipal Corporation.

The civic agency passed a motion in this regard on Friday.

It will be a "huge relief" for thousands of residents, who join two or more adjacent small flats to make a larger dwelling to accommodate a growing family, Mahendra Nagpal, Leader of the House in North corporation, said.

"It has come to our notice that some unscrupulous officials in collusion with police have been troubling residents who have joined their small flats or houses. To do way with the blackmail, we have asked the corporation to take a fee or fine from the owners," Leader of Opposition Nagpal said.

"There will be no threat of civic action against their houses once the fee is paid. The owners will be able to breathe easy," he said.
