Neighbourhood News Desk/Avi Arya: All Industries that are illegally operating in residential areas would instantly be shut along with their water and power supply being disconnected. A Delhi Government committee that was overseeing the closure of these units reported to the Supreme Court.
This report that was given before a bench of justices MB Lokur and Deepak Gupta, a monitoring committee that was led by the Delhi chief secretary gave an outline of this plan in order to take action against industrial units that were supposed to shut down the operations in accordance with the top court’s May 2004 order.
But now, it turns out that the industries have alternate spots and so their operations cannot be stopped. So the panel decides to crack down these units first and now in the next few days all of the industries that are still operating in the residential colonies will still lose electric and power supplies despite having alternate plots.
Next, the municipal corporations will identify the rejected applicants where, instead of closing the shops will continue to operate illegally in residential areas. A list of 51,837 applicants has already been provided to the civic bodies and the Delhi Development Authority. The mapping out is said to be completed within two months, once the identities of the non-permitted industries are revealed they’ll be sealed right away.
