Image Error There are more than 5,500 illegal colonies in Punjab having lakhs of houses and plots: Sukhbir Singh Badal, Punjab Deputy CM

Last Date for Regularisation of Illegal Colonies in Punjab Extended till October 25

10 Oct 2013

The Punjab Government, in the absence of receiving good response, has decided that the plot holders and colonisers can still get their plots or houses regularised after October 25, but with a rider, that too up to November 5. The plot holders will have to pay a compounding fee of 20 per cent while colonisers of 50 per cent.

The decision was taken at a high-level meeting presided over by Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Badal and attended by Finance Minister Parminder Singh Dhindsa, Industry Minister Madan Mohan Mittal, Revenue and Public Relations Minister Bikram Singh Majithia, PWD Minister Sharanjit Singh Dhillon and Local Bodies Minister Anil Joshi besides Chief Parliamentary Secretaries Som Prakash and KD Bhandari.

In addition to this, the Punjab Government has also exempted holders of all plots and colonies developed before 1995 from getting themselves regularised under the regularisation of illegal colonies scheme.

Now, the condition of generating application number slip online by the applicant himself has been withdrawn for the convenience of the applicants. Now, this acknowledgement receipt/registration slip shall be generated by the concerned office on submission of manually filled application form.

Approximately, 40 per cent of identified plot holders and 30 per cent of colonizers have applied for regularization of plots or colonies under the scheme.

The government has received more than INR 125 crore as regularization fee as of now.  Sukhbir ordered officers to accept acceptance of forms both manually and online.

This is being done to facilitate people to approach the authorities as they wish. Applicants are now also being given the facility to deposit online also.
