Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan has said that the state’s colonies will be freed from the blot of illegality. The work of regularization of colonies will be started on April 7 and completed on August 15.
He issued instructions to initiate the unorganized labour registration work as a campaign. Chouhan was addressing a workshop related to regularization of illegal colonies at R.C.V.P Noronha Academy of Administration today. The workshop was organized by Department of Urban Development and Housing.
Chairman Housing Board Krishna Murari Moghe was also present during the workshop. CM Chouhan presented a certificate for bagging the first position in the state in Livelihood Mission (Urban) to Minister Smt. Maya Singh.
CM Chouhan said that the democratic system is for the public. Rules, regulations and law are all valid only if they are for public welfare.
If not, they will be changed. Government has undertaken the work of regularization after taking into account the pain of illegal colonies. Pattas have been given to the displaced and merger grievances have been resolved.
Work of regularization should be carried out with enthusiasm and zeal with a view to bring happiness in the lives of the residents. No obstruction in the process of regularization will be accepted. Where there is no way, a way out will be found to make changes or additions in the rules.
He stressed on the need to keep provision for arrangements of facilities of well-equipped housing under Urban Planning for the populations to come in the cities in future. He said that the government’s effort is to take “Vikas ka Prakash” to every poor person.
He said that he will personally monitor regularization of illegal colonies regularly.
