To expedite the proceedings in complaints related to properties, the district administration has formed a new three-member committee consisting of officials from the police department, the Greater Mohali Area Development Authority (GMADA) and civil administration.
The three-member committee will comprise the Additional Deputy Commissioner (ADC), Additional Chief Administrator (ACA) of GMADA and a Superintendent of Police (SP) level police officer, who will work on property-related pending complaints.
Deputy Commissioner (DC) Girish Dayalan told The Indian Express that he had formed the committee that would look into property disputes and send the important cases to Real Estate Regulatory Authority (RERA).
He added that there were a lot of complaints related to property deals and builders which kept the staff busy, hence he had decided to form a committee to exclusively deal with such issues and dispose of the complaints.
