A day after Jalandhar Deputy Commissioner Shruti Singh issued orders to revenue officers directing them not to register any properties in illegal colonies, the DC amended the order twice in 24 hours — first on Thursday itself and for the second time on Friday.
On Thursday, after Singh ordered revenue officers not to register of any properties in illegal colonies in Jalandhar, the order was amended in the evening. The public relation department clarified to mediapersons that the order was only meant for colonies falling under the purview of Jalandhar Development authority (JDA). There are many illegal colonies under Jalandhar Municipal Corporation (JMC) as well. In all, there are around 1,000 illegal colonies in Jalandhar.
On Friday, the order was amended again. Now, it only caters to illegal colonies, which were carved out this year. According to sources, this followed the meeting of some developers with BJP leaders.
When contacted, Shruti Singh said: "My orders are meant for the new colonies and not for the old one."
