Many a squatter removed in anti-encroachment drive of Gurugram

Gurugram: After receiving several complaints from residents regarding congestion on Golf Course Road and HUDA City Centre, the Municipal Corporation of Gurugram (MCG) carried out a major anti-encroachment drive from Paras Hospital to Galleria Market and removed scores of squatters.

Residents of the area have been complaining about vendors and shops encroaching on public space causing enormous inconvenience while commuting through the roads.

Following this, the civic body, along with the Gurgaon Police, carried out a survey on the three major roads of the city, Golf Course Road, Paras Hospital Road and HUDA City Centre road, to ease traffic flow.

According to an MCG official, during the survey, it was observed that these roads were facing encroachment by illegal street vendors, restaurants and stalls making it difficult for the residents to commute especially for pedestrians.

The MCG earmarked the spots on these roads where vehicles are usually parked and the civic body will put “no parking” signboards at such places with the help of the Police. The Police has also been asked to issue challan to such vehicles on a regular basis.

The MCG has decided to continue with its encroachment removal drive on all major roads such as Paras Hospital Road, Golf Course Road along with MG road, Wazirabad Road. They have also requested the police to deploy more force to ensure that no more encroachment takes place.

Meanwhile, SS Rohilla, MCG PRO said, “The motive behind the drive was to remove all illegal establishment on all major roads of the city to ease traffic movement.”
