“We have completed the mutation of land under MCM. A meeting was held recently to track the progress of development work in the corporation’s areas and we were directed to start the land demarcation process. It will start this week. Our patwaris are going from village to village to look for encroachment on MCM land. But only after we start the demarcation procedure will we know the extent of encroachment on government land,” said Hariom Attri, the district revenue officer at MCM.
Officials said boundary walls would be constructed to protect the government land from encroachment. Moreover, the MCM team has also been directed to expedite their work on the ground.
“The development branch was told to prepare detailed project reports of the work done in Manesar. The horticulture department was asked to check the condition of parks and ascertain their infrastructure requirement. The zonal taxation officer was instructed to remove illegal hoardings across the area. The sanitation department has been told to submit their requirement of its workers,” said a senior MCM official.
Meanwhile, the process to collect records from villages that have now come under the new corporation is nearly complete as a majority of villages have submitted their documents.
“Our teams have started a survey to check illegal hoardings. After the survey is complete, we will remove these hoardings and take action against violators accordingly. Most of these illegal advertisements are in urban areas and around sectors with urban population,” said Dinesh Kumar, superintendent taxation-cum-zonal taxation officer. It was in November last year that the chief minister had announced that Manesar would have a new corporation. According to records, the new civic body is expected to generate a revenue of Rs 74 crore annually.
