-In the overall 4-day drive on SPR road which spanned from Rajesh Pilot Chowk to Vatika Chowk, about 80 acres of 30-meter-wide Green Belts along 5 kms road length on each side of SPR have been cleared of encroachment.

Gurugram, 4 June 2024: Amidst heavy rainfall, the Enforcement Wing of Gurugram Metropolitan Development Authority (GMDA) yesterday concluded its fourth day of the anti-encroachment drive taken up on the Southern Peripheral Road (SPR), to clear the green belts and make them free of encroachments and illegal constructions.

The drive continued till late evening and efforts to free the green belts of encroachment were not dampened despite the rainfall. 

The sectors which were covered on the SPR road yesterday included sector 49, 50, 56 and 57. Most of the unauthorized constructions and encroachments were found near the roundabouts and on the junctions which was a leading cause of traffic congestion. About 100 banjara huts and makeshift shops, 26 building material shops and 18 other shops of scrap dealers, furniture, panwadi, tyre puncture kiosks and khokhas, etc, along with 12 nurseries were removed from the green belts.

It was ensured that timely announcement was made for allowing the offenders to remove their belongings. However, it was found that many of them had not removed the encroachment and the Enforcement team heavily enforced the drive and continued to clear the green belts despite heavy rainfall. 

Few banjara market vendors requested to restrain the demolishment of their hutments for one month. To provide relief and to ensure that small children and old age people are not disturbed in the rainfall, Shri. R.S. Batth, DTP, Enforcement Wing, GMDA, directed officials that two jhuggies be kept intact for accommodating the vulnerable age groups. He further instructed to all the encroachers that this temporary encroachment shall further be cleared within two days. 

Chief Executive Officer, GMDA, Shri A. Sreenivas has directed the Enforcement Wing of GMDA to continue such enforcement drives to clear all the Green Belts and Right of Way where unauthorized structures have come up in order to further improve the utilisation and aesthetics of the city’s green belts.

“Regular enforcement drives shall be continuing in the city and inspection visits shall also be conducted on the stretches as a continued monitoring mechanism. I am also thankful to the residents of Gurugram who are cooperating and appreciating the efforts,” said Shri R.S. Baath.

Furthermore, during yesterday’s drive few residents of the surrounding sectors who were passing along SPR road requested to clear major encroachment on Sectors 61 and 62. On enquiry, it was submitted to DTP Enforcement, GMDA by the Enforcement team that the necessary legal formalities stand completed and immediately the team after clearing the SPR road reached the said spots and cleared about 10 to 15 illegal khokhas which were existing on the junction.
