Chief Minister of Haryana Manohar Lal Khattar, on August 16, said that every tehsil would now use Differential Global Positioning System (DGPS) for demarcation and alignment of land. The move was aimed to enhance the efficiency of the development projects.
The CM made the announcements while presiding over a monthly meeting to hear out public grievances. Of the 13 complaints tabled at the meeting, CM Khattar addressed 11 on the spot. To date, authorised private surveyors were doing the demarcation of plots and their alignment manually. This is a time-consuming process and delays projects.
As per officials, DGPS technology could come in handy to fast-track the work and reduce the piled-up applications at the tehsil offices. As reported by a national daily, the issue of delays was taken up while a discussion on a complaint filed by a resident of Mohammad Heri village. The complainant alleged that the construction of drains in his area had been delayed by more than a year as the land demarcation was not done.
On the complaint, CM Khattar asked the officials of the Public Works Department (PWD) to complete the drain work within a month’s time after the land is demarcated. CM also directed the local tehsildar to finish measuring a panchayati land in Bhokarka village in the coming 15 days.
During the people’s grievance redressal meet, the CM also came across a plea by residents of NBCC Green View in Sector 37D. The residents were asking for the construction of a 145m-long road that has been delayed for several years due to the non-acquisition of land. Answering this, the CM directed Deputy Commissioner Yash Garg to figure out a solution to the problem.
The CM, while answering a plea by M3M Woodshire residents over sewage outflowing into a panchayati plot, directed the Gurugram Metropolitan Development Authority (GMDA) officials to connect the Dharampur village drain to a Sewage Treatment Plant (STP) before it enters the Najafgarh drain.
Meanwhile, Khattar asked MCG Chief Mukesh Ahuja to carry out a special survey for the restoration work of the Guru Dronacharya pond. Also, he directed the official to remove encroachment around the pond and build a boundary wall.
