New Delhi: Hardeep Singh Puri said a bill to regularize unauthorized settlements in Delhi was passed in the Rajya Sabha

Delhi unauthorized settlements: The Rajya Sabha on Tuesday approved a major bill on regularization of unauthorized settlements in the capital, Delhi. The bill will be changed after the passage of the Second National Amendment (Amendment) Ordinance, 2020, by the Delhi National Capital Act

Responding to the debate on the Second National Amendment Bill (Amendment) Bill, 2021, Minister of Housing and Urban Development Hardeep Singh Puri said that the central government headed by Narendra Modi wants to provide a house for all. He said the government had launched the Pradhan Mantri Awas project for this purpose.

Relief from the ceiling

Puri explained that some members’ objections were unfounded when the bill was brought before the bill, and said it was not necessary if there was a winter session of parliament. He said that if the government waits for a parliamentary session and does not issue an eulogy, it will begin to seal the authority’s assets at various points in Delhi, which would be a disadvantage to the citizens of Delhi.

The relevant ordinance was issued on December 30 last year and thereby amended the National Capital Terms of Delhi (Special Provisions) Act, 2011. Puri said the UPA government had allocated a total of Rs 77 lakh crore in the region in ten years. He said that the Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led government had allocated Rs 11 lakh crore to the sector under various projects in six years.

PM Modi wants a roof over all the people of the country

The Prime Minister said that by 2022, all people in the country should have a roof roof over their heads, which is their dream. He said the ownership of the home should be in the name of the woman who lives in the house. “It is estimated that one crore 12 lakh houses will be built during the preparation of the Pradhan Mantri Awas project,” he said.

After the Minister’s reply, the House passed the bill by voice. The 2011 law was valid until December 31 last year. The legal deadline was extended to Dec. 31, 2023, by eulogy.

The 2011 law proposed to regularize unauthorized settlements in the nation’s capital by 31 March 2020. In addition, until June 1, 2014, there was talk of regularizing those settlements that were under construction.
