The GHMC is currently on their demolition drive, where they identified properties both finished and under construction without a building permit and immediately demolished them. The GHMC and their demolishing campaign are also working on the illegal occupation of footpaths at Bahadurpura Junction and the road from Bahadurpura to Kishan Bagh.
The surprising rains in the city, especially in the Bahadurpura area, have created some severe waterlogging issues, which have landed the officials in some real trouble. To ensure GHMC can fix the problems of waterlogging near the Nalas and footpaths, they are working on eliminating the encroachment of these locations.
With the nalas being the municipal body's only option to drain out the rainwater, GHMC is keen on removing all illegal set up by traders at the footpaths. Accordingly, the corporation has sent notices to shops from Bahadurpura to Kishanbagh to conduct their businesses within their shops, and anything apart from their shutter space will be demolished. Besides this, GHMC will focus on widening nalas so that waterlogging is long gone and there is no stagnation of water post heavy rains.
Encroachments have always posed trouble for GHMC to take up repair works and maintenance, especially during monsoons, and caused enough problems to pedestrians and motorists. Moreover, such an illegal setup near Bahadurpura and the Nehru Zoological Park has caused trouble for the flow of rainwater into the nalas near the above locations. With the current drive and notices served to traders at Bahadurpura, this menace will stop.
