This was stated in a reply by Avas Vikas official to an online complaint


Uttar Pradesh Avas Vikas Parishad, acting on a complaint against illegal commercial activity and constructions in Vasundhara has said that it has  served notices to commercial establishments and single-unit plots upon which illegal constructions have been done. After such notices have been issued orders for sealing and demolition have also been given against illegal constructions and shops. The letter also states that FIRs have been registered against property owners running shops from houses and those indulging in illegal constructions.

The letter by Executive Engineer, Vaibhav Pandey of Avas Vikas, Construction Divison 16, Vasundhara mentions that it has been written to Municipal Commissioner, Ghaziabad Nagar Nigam not to great water connections to such illegal shops and plot owners. Similarly, Power Corporation has been asked not to grant them power connections.

Avas Vikas has previously also served notices to the illegal shopowners however they had defied the orders, especially those ailing Sector 16 main road. Many of these illegal shopowners used their political clout to put pressure on Avas Vikas officials. However, it is for the first time that FIRs as well as orders to seal and demolish such illegal premises and establishments have been passed. reporter
