Dwarka Expressway the new most awaited project is said to be delayed for years now and as reported one of the major encumbrances in the path of the expressway were 68 concrete buildings in New Palam Vihar. The area continued to be in litigation since the project started.

On Friday the urban development authority served notice to the occupants, asking them to vacate the premises within 24 hrs. The notices were issued under sub-section (2) of Section 18 of the Huda Act, 1977.

The residents have been seeking alternative plots but the Punjab and Haryana court had put a stay on the allotment of plots as the buildings they been living in only have General Power of Attorney and does not have registries of the properties. Thereby the allotments of alternative plots were denied for those residents.

On Thursday The MCG, Huda, NHAI, HVPNL (power Transmission Company) and GMDA jointly had a meeting to set a deadline so that all the obstacles can possibly be removed in the 18 km stretch by the end of June.

While razing the structures urban development authority has requested the state government to enhance the security of the site ensuring proper implementation of the decision.

Currently, the structures which stood in the way of progress still haven’t been removed. “MCG will shift temples in Pawala Khusrpur and a shrine near Daultabad Chowk by June 15,” said MCG commissioner Yashpal Yadav. Similarly, private properties in Sector 110 and Bajghera will be removed by Huda within two weeks. Even after every possible action taken Dwarka Expressway still sees a major hurdle as the relocation of power transmission lines is yet to be practiced. The agencies during the meet have also decided to complete the entire pendency of the patch.
