The Delhi government has now decided to use satellite images to check illegal construction in Sainik Farms, an upmarket unauthorised colony.
Sources at Geospatial Delhi Limited said the Urban Development department has asked them for satellite images of Sainik Farms 2007 onwards.
“The satellite images shows the detailed layout of each colony. By comparing it on a yearly basis, the government gets an idea about the construction that took place without its permission. Though Sainik farms is still not regularised and the process has been halted, the images would give the Urban Development department an idea of the illegal construction that has taken place in the colony after 2007,” a senior official at the department said.
According to officials, satellite images for Sainik farms will be procured soon. However, sources claimed that the images may not be used to demolish the unauthorised construction.
“As the whole area is yet to be regularised, the department might be looking to prepare the ground for marking the area that can be regularised. The Delhi government had written to the Union Ministry of Urban Development to consider the regularisation of Sainik Farms and other affluent colonies such as Mahendru Enclave and Anant Ram Dairy. But the request was declined,” the official said.

An official said the geospatial data would also give the government a substantive document to know how much more unauthorised construction has taken place in Sainik farms since 2007.
Earlier, the municipal corporations too has been able to secure data from Geospatial Delhi limited (GSDL) to give a unique identification property code to each property under their jurisdiction. This was done to bring properties that are evading property tax in tax net.
