After a debate raging for the past few years about providing civic amenities to the residents of Deep Complex at Hallomajra,the estimates for the same have been prepared. These will be brought up for discussion in the meeting of the general house of the Municipal Corporation scheduled for April 30.
The area will be provided with water supply and sewerage connections. The pipelines for these will be laid. The estimates will be placed before the house for discussion and approval.
Deep Complex is an illegal colony and with a lack of checks,over the years,a large number of houses have developed in it,with a substantial population now living there. Before the last Lok Sabha elections,the area was regularized. However,soon after,it was denotified. Due to its status,the provision of basic amenities was also not allowed in the area. Water was being supplied through tankers.
Punjab Governor and UT Administrator Shivraj V Patil had directed the officials to ensure that basic facilities are given to the residents. The area councillor,Jannat Jahan-ul-Haq,along with leaders of the BSP,met the Administrator several times to take up the issue.
Union Minister Pawan Bansal also went to the area with officers in tow and assured them that amenities like water supply and sewerage would be provided.
Mayor Subhash Chawla said that the agenda would be placed in the meeting of the House and once approved,the work for providing civic amenities will be started.
