Uttarakhand Chief Minister Vijay Bahuguna has said that unauthorised colonies in the state would be regularised so that residents get ownership rights of their property.
A proposal for regularisation of unauthorised colonies would soon be brought before the state cabinet, Bahuguna said during a review meeting of the urban development department here last evening.
In this regard, he said the government is also preparing policies for housing and township development.
An official release said Bahuguna also advocated the construction of a multi-parking complex to redress parking problems in cities. He also called for better coordination between various undertaking agencies involved in construction works.
The Chief Minister said that traffic signals would be installed in all the squares and multi-story parking would be constructed in the city. He said measures would be taken to make the city lush and green.
Bahuguna laid emphasis on improving financial condition of local civic bodies and said taxes would be imposed on local buses entering the city area and responsibility of operating buses would also be given to local civic bodies.
