NEW DELHI: Prime Min­is­ter Naren­dra Modi on Fri­day as­sured a del­e­ga­tion of over 200 peo­ple, in­clud­ing BJP MPS from Delhi, that a law would be en­acted by Par­lia­ment to grant own­er­ship rights to the res­i­dents of unau­tho­rised colonies in the na­tional cap­i­tal.

Separately, at an event, Union Hous­ing and Ur­ban Af­fairs Min­is­ter Hardeep Singh Puri said the reg­is­tra­tion of prop­er­ties in unau­tho­rised colonies would start in 7-10 days.

The Union Cab­i­net last month ap­proved a pro­posal to grant own­er­ship rights to peo­ple liv­ing in 1,797 unau­tho­rised colonies in Delhi, a move likely to ben­e­fit nearly 40 lakh peo­ple in the city.

The del­e­ga­tion which met the prime min­is­ter at his res­i­dence on Fri­day in­cluded res­i­dents of unau­tho­rised colonies, ac­tivists who had been wag­ing a strug­gle for such rights, and BJP law­mak­ers from Delhi. The mem­bers thanked PM Modi for the de­ci­sion on pro­vid­ing own­er­ship rights. The meet­ing was tele­cast live on the Face­book page of BJP’S Delhi unit.

“A law will be passed in the up­com­ing Win­ter Ses­sion of Par­lia­ment,” Modi told the del­e­ga­tion.
