Teams of the UT Estate Office on Tuesday who were to conduct the anti-encroachment drive in the Industrial Area phase I,II instead turned to gandhigiri to convince the encroachers and the violators to remove the encroachments and the violations on their own.
According to officials of the Estate Office, the department wanted to give one last chance to the violators so that they can avoid taking action and taking legal recourse.
According to a recent survey by the EO officials in Industrial Area Phase I and II, there are about 84 encroachments, besides about 40 per cent of the total plots which have violated the by laws by misusing their premises.
After giving the violators and those who have encroached upon the government land ten days, the EO office will again visit the area to see the compliance rate. If there will still be encroachments and violations, they will go ahead with the demolition drive, said assistant Estate Officer Rahul Gupta.
