The Bareilly Development Authority (BDA) has asked the illegal residents of Biharman Nagla under Bhaurav Devras Awasya Yojna to either register the apartments they have encroached upon by September 26 or vacate the properties.
Officials have informed that the encroachers were warned several times in the past and now have been asked to apply for the residential unit by depositing the requisite property amount by the end of September, 2017. Each flat in the complex is of 65 sq m and costs Rs 9.81 lakh.
In 2003, BDA had developed 23 apartments under the Bhaurav Devras Awasya Yojna where only 38 plots were to be allotted to applicants.
SP Singh, Secretary, BDA, has stated that encroachers have been residing here for free for the last 10 years. Now, we have opened the process of accepting applications for the apartments in the building. The Authority has granted two weeks to the encroachers to apply for registration of the units. Of the 25 families living in the area, only two families have applied, till now.
