Taking stern action to stop the spread of illegal colonies coming under the Jalandhar Development Authority, the deputy commissioner of Jalandhar, Shruti Singh, on Thursday issued orders to revenue officers directing them not to register any properties in illegal Jalandhar colonies.
There are around 1,000 illegal colonies in Jalandhar of which many come under Jalandhar Development Authority.
The deputy commissioner said all legal colonies of Jalandhar would be displayed on the official website soon and before registration of any property complete investigation will be done.
Revenue department officials said that most of the illegal colonies belong to several small and big politicians and it is to be seen that how the pressure from them can be ignored by the department.
