The Haryana Revenue and Disaster Management Department has issued directions regarding sale and purchase of property in unauthorised colonies.

An official spokesman on Monday said orders of Punjab and Haryana High Court dated November 1, 2012, passed in a Civil Writ Petition of 2012 in this regard have been sent through a written communication to all Divisional Commissioners and Deputy Commissioners of the state.

He said they have been asked to prepare a list of unauthorised colonies and raise awareness among general public about it. Public notices would be published in two vernacular language newspapers in the concerned areas.

Pamphlets would be displayed at important places like Tehsil or Sub Division or district Offices, schools, community centres and bus stands to inform general public about unauthorised colonies, he said.

He said Sub Registrars and Joint Sub Registrars would be intimated in clear terms that in case the land of unauthorised colonies is registered, they would face strict departmental or criminal action.

He said a team of officers consisting of Sub Divisional Magistrate, District Revenue Officer and Stamp Auditor would be constituted to do random checking of the Tehsils or Sub Tehsils to ensure that no land of unauthorised colonies is registered.

He said the team would inspect the Tehsils or Sub Tehsils and verify implementation of the orders and in case of violation, the Deputy Commissioners would forward such acts of omission and commission without fail.

Their reports might be sent to the state government in the first week of January and July every year, he added.
