On January 10, 2019, 14 factories that were running illegally from residential or non-conforming areas in Gandhi Nagar, Krishna Nagar, Jagatpuri and Farsh Bazar were sealed off by the East Delhi Municipal Corporation (EDMC).
Officials said that in October, these factories were in a list of 51,873 units that were provided by the Delhi State Industrial & Infrastructure Development Corporation (DSIIDC) to three municipal corporations. In its second list, DSIIDC had mentioned 4,300 illegal factories in Shahdara south zone of EDMC.
