MCG gears up to provide amenities in 44 illicit colonies of Gurgaon
Forty four unauthorized colonies in Gurgaon are set to receive basic amenities from the Muncipal Corporation of Gurgaon with state elections round the corner. The step comes in as a huge relief for the residents of the illegal colonies as they have been demanding basic amenities for quite some time. This will ultimately help the government to woo lakhs of people residing in such colonies.

The Haryana Government has reduced the development charges to be paid by owners and occupants of the illicit colonies on Wednesday with an aim to provide civic amenities to the residents. According to the revised fee structure, the residents have to shell out Rs 150 per square yard as development charge.

Amenities such as water, streetlights, electricity and sewage disposals among others will be provided to the people living in the unauthorized colonies.

According to the reports by The Times of India, there are total of 542 illicit colonies in Haryana and they have repeatedly protested, demanding civic amenities. However, there is a small twist in the tale as 22 colonies will not be benefitted from this step because of the Air Force Ammunition Depot. The 900-metre restricted area is a refrained zone. It will affect two lakhs people.
