THE GREATER Mohali Area Development Authority (GMADA) has worked out all the modalities for the implementation of the much-awaited need-based policy which is likely to be implemented by the end of this month.
Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal will chair a meeting of GMADA officials for the implementation of the policy which will benefit more than 15,000 people.
A GMADA official told Chandigarh Newsline that they had completed the door-to-door survey and met all the representatives of Resident Welfare Associations (RWAs) in a month-long exercise which was started last month to work out the modalities. The official added that the residents were also consulted.
“All the modalities are complete. The Deputy CM is going to chair the meeting this week and most likely he will give his approval. It is a much-awaited policy and a long-pending demand of the residents who wanted to make changes in their old houses,” added the official.
During the survey, the areas in Phase XI, Phase X, Sector 70, Phase IX, Phase I, Phase VI and Phase II were physically verified by the GMADA officials, including chief administrator A K Sinha. The policy was to be implemented in February but it was delayed as GMADA did not receive many suggestions from the city residents.
After this, GMADA started door-to-door survey in the city to know suggestions of the residents and to physically verify the houses which will fall under the policy. The need-based policy will allow people to make necessary changes in their houses which were built long ago. This had been a long-pending demand of people.
