News posted by

Chandigarh, June 18 (PTI) Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal today said the state government would soon amend the Punjab Apartment Property Regulation (PAPR) Act, 1995, to insert stringent provisions to deter builders from building unauthorised colonies. Presiding over a meeting of the delegation of Punjab unit of Confederation of Real Estate Developers Association of India (CREDAI) here, Badal asked the Secretary Housing & Urban Development to study the procedure adopted by Haryana government to prevent construction of unauthorized colonies. Expressing concern over growing unauthorized colonies in Punjab, Badal said it was not only detrimental to the holistic growth and development of the state but also caused sheer exploitation and harassment of the people. Responding to the demands raised by the delegation of CREDAI, the Chief Minister asked the Punjab State Power Corporation Ltd. to provide either a single-point metering system to the promoters of the licensed colonies or an individual meter to all the residents. Badal also directed the Chairman, Punjab State Power Corporation, to install the 66 KV grid sub station within the premises of licensed colonies by charging a lump sum amount of Rs.3 crore from the promoters in addition to 5 per cent ex-gratia on account of escalation in the cost of electrical equipment and material.
