The enforcement wing of the department of town and country planning (DTCP) razed 11 illegal structures on the green belt area alongside the Delhi-Jaipur Highway and government land between revenue estates of Sidhrawali and Bhorakalan on Monday.

The demolished structures included New Madina Hotel, Yadav Hotels, German Cafe Hotel, Rimjhim Hotel, Mezban Hotel and six unauthorised shops.

The DTCP officials said that they were forced to take this action as owners of these establishments did not respond to the notices sent to them.

“The owners of these establishments were given notices for setting up illegal structures in the green belts and violating all norms. Their power and water connections were illegal and were causing a huge loss to the exchequer,” assistant town planner (enforcement wing) Narinder Kumar said.

The DTCP had identified 69 properties which are illegally operating alongside the national highway.

The officials informed, “Out of the 69 structures, four have applied for change of land, seven of them have taken legal route and others have yet not taken any action.

“We have started taking action against such establishments from near the Gururgram border,” Kumar said.

“These establishments have encroached upon government land and operate beyond the purview of any agency. They also pose a danger to commuters as traffic jams are caused when trucks and cars stop here,” assistant town planner Amit Madholia said.
