This amend­ment will pro­vide the benefits ac­cru­ing from reg­u­lar­iza­tion to a large num­ber of peo­ple Around 7 lakh peo­ple will be ben­e­fited living in 895 unau­tho­rised colonies, that have come in ex­is­tence be­tween 31st March, 2002 and 1st June, 2014.

“The or­di­nance is for reg­u­lar­i­sa­tion of unau­tho­rised colonies in Delhi and the de­tailed im­ple­men­ta­tion and guide­lines will be is­sued by the au­thor­i­ties con­cerned,” said, Union Fi­nance Min­is­ter Arun Jait­ley.

The ex­ist­ing guide­lines were last amended in June 2012, which changed the se­quence to be fol­lowed for reg­u­lar­i­sa­tion al­low­ing ap­proval of lay-out plan and land use change af­ter is­sue of for­mal or­der of reg­u­lar­i­sa­tion. Union Ur­ban Devel­op­ment Min­istry in a state­ment men­tioned that, “This was done with­out seek­ing the ap­proval of the Union Cabi­net for amend­ing the guide­lines, and ac­cord­ingly, no fur­ther ac­tion was taken.” “The or­di­nance is for reg­u­lar­i­sa­tion of unau­tho­rised colonies in Delhi and the de­tailed im­ple­men­ta­tion and guide­lines will be is­sued by the au­thor­i­ties con­cerned,” said, Union Fi­nance Min­is­ter Arun Jait­ley. Ac­cord­ing to the UD Min­istry state­ment, the Cabi­net de­ci­sion comes in the back­drop of sev­eral rounds of dis­cus­sions held be­tween the Ur­ban Devel­op­ment Min­istry, headed by Venkaiah Naidu, and Lt-Gover­nor Na­jeeb Jung. “The Delhi gov­ern­ment had sent a pro­posal, seek­ing ex­ten­sion of cut-off date for reg­u­lar­i­sa­tion. It had opined that reg­u­lar­i­sa­tion of unau­tho­rised colonies would bring planned constructions to th­ese colonies un­der ex­ist­ing build­ing by­laws and other ap­pli­ca­ble rules. This in turn, would re­sult in more devel­op­ment in the colonies,” the UD Min­istry state­ment read.
