The Greater Mohali Area Development Authority (GMADA) will implement the need-based policy in the city next month, which will benefit around 16,000 people in the city who are waiting to modify their houses or had modified and were issued the notices. GMADA, however, has received only 11 applications of suggestions from city residents for amendments in the policy.
GMADA officials told Chandigarh Newsline that a committee was formed after a notification was issued last month by the state government to implement a need-based policy in the city. The committee has the responsibility of scrutnising the suggestions sent by people and submitting its recommendations for the implementation of the policy.
GMADA Chief Administrator A K Sinha said that they invited suggestions from people after an eight-member committee was formed.
The committee will send a report after working out all the modalities for the implementation of the policy. Sinha also added that the policy could be implemented in the first month of the new year as the committee had already done most of the work.
The implementation of the need-based policy has been pending for a long time. There are many residential areas where people were issued notices notices by GMADA for violating norms by making changes in their houses.
