The North Municipal Corporation is all set to approve the layout plan for its first unauthorised colony,Bhagwan Park.

“Area and size of plots have not been mentioned in regularisation plans submitted by the RWA. Therefore,the size of plots will be determined on the basis of ownership documents issued at the time of sanctioning and regularisation of building plans,” North Municipal Corporation Commissioner P K Gupta said. He said the cost of the layout plan will be borne by the residents of the colony.

The width of internal roads in the colony varies between two metres and 14.62 metres,as opposed to the Fire department norm of a minimum of six metres. The right of way of internal roads has been proposed accordingly,a senior official said.

The Delhi government had in September 2012 identified 895 colonies for regularisation. Of these,312 colonies on private land have been notified as regularised. Of those 312 colonies,42 fall under the jurisdiction of New Delhi Municipal Corporation and Bhagwan Park is among them.
