An enforcement team of Ghaziabad Development Authority (GDA) demolished an illegal colony namely Manokamna Residency at Raj Nagar Extension that had not taken any permission from the GDA. The GDA Secretary Santosh Kumar Rai gave instructions for demolition of this illegal colony without any map approval.
A few days’ back the GDA had sealed 21 shops and 13 plots of the developer while an FIR was lodged against the developer Mukesh Tyagi for breaking the seal and starting work. The demolition could not be carried out earlier due to non-availability of adequate police force.
Santosh Kumar Rai also said that all enforcement incharges have been instructed by the VC Kanchan Verma to identify 10 big violations in their area and to take demolish or seal them. He also appealed to the public not to buy flats or property before checking the map approval from the GDA.
