NIT regularisation : Huge problem

Nagpur Improvement Trust (NIT) which showed tearing hurry in deleting public utility lands under the Maharashtra Gunthewari Act had demonstrated shocking apathy in processing applications of as many as 87,000 small plot holders and residents of unauthorised layouts who are seeking regularisation.

During last seven years, the NIT had processed only 52,000 applications while remaining 87,000 applications are simply pending. According to a conservative estimate, the NIT will require at least two-three years to issue demand notes and release order of these plots. NIT Chairman Shyam Tagade revealed these figures to mediapersons on Thursday. He said that 10,000 plot holders have responded to the special regularisation drive. Administration had given last chance to the plot holders of these layouts to file application for regularisation. Tagade said that till now, 1,39,000 plot holders have applied for the regularisation of their plots. He said that administration will take another two-three years for issuing release order and demand note. The development work would be undertaken only after the entire processing work is over, he added. The NIT Chairman said that those who had still not applied for the regularisation of their plots will have to face the music as per the Gunthewari Act. First, NIT will have to issue notices to these plot holders and then take action under the Act. However, Tagade has no data about how many plot holders have not responded so far. He said that NIT will survey the layouts and issue notices on proper time. Tagade said that his first priority is to issue demand notice to all the plot holders who have applied for regularisation.

He said that NIT has Rs 52 crore deposit for the development of these layouts. Tagade said that the layouts have increased from 1,900 to 3,400. But how come NIT missed the mushrooming of another 1,500 unauthorised lay-outs. On the transfer of layouts to Nagpur Municipal Corporation (NMC), he said that the issue is yet to be finalised. NMC has demanded transfer of Public Utility plots as well and the issue is pending before the Board of Trustees. Tagade said that Superintending Engineer P Kadu had inquired the matter regarding manhandling with the Building Engineer Rajeev Elkawar recently. He said that if any plot holder has any problem then they can meet him or Kadu. “We will definitely solve their problems,” he promised.
