New Delhi: Lieutenant-governor Anil Baijal on Wednesday directed the land management wing of the Delhi Development Authority (DDA) to compile a list of year-wise encroachment on its land in two months and prepare an action plan for removal of illegal occupants.

Mr Baijal, who is also the chairman of the DDA, issued the order at the fortnightly meeting with the land-owning agency. Senior DDA officials, including its vice-chairman Uday Pratap Singh, were present at the meeting where an action taken report of the last meeting on “Land Management Issues” was presented.

In a statement, Raj Niwas said, “Two months time (has been) given to land management wing of the DDA to compile year-wise data of encroachment of DDA land along with action plan for remo-val of encroachment”.

The L-G also approved a plan on “Digital Delivery of all Services in DDA” in a time-bound manner. He also directed the DDA to set up more citizen facilitation centres in various parts of the city.

Mr Baijal has directed the senior officials to ensure that the DDA online portal must have public grievance redressal mechanism so that there is minimal human interface. Geo referencing of vacant plots should be done in coordination with Geological Survey of India and National Remote Sensing Centre.

The agency was also asked to identify pockets of plots and areas where layout plans have still not been made so that they could be notified as “Green” to prevent further encroachment.

“DDA to undertake digitalisation of about 77 workflow activities related to land disposal, housing, land management, financial matters, sports, personnel etc. To begin with,” it added.

Mr Baijal noted that the initiative should be implemented as a “turnkey project”, where a project is developed and sold to a buyer as a completed product, in a time-bound manner which would ease service delivery.
