Chandigarh civic body notice to 200 houses in Sarangpur, Khuda Lahora, Real Estate News, ET RealEstate
CHANDIGARH: The municipal corporation has served notices on around 200 residences of Sarangpur village and Khuda Lahora for draining out their wastewater from kitchen and bathroom to storm line instead of sewage line, which further took it to Patiala ki Rao choe, polluting the natural rivulet. Sarangpur has been adopted by city MP Kirron Kher, while Khuda Lahora is situated near the choe.

The civic body has given one month’s time to all the residents to divert their wastewater to sewage line or get ready for action that can even be disconnection of water supply. The MC will also rope in the Chandigarh Pollution Control Committee in this exercise.

“We have issued notices under the Water Prevention Act of 1974, asking the violators to ensure that their wastewater goes to the sewage line. Since the survey is going on, in the coming days more such notices will be issued to the violators, so that wastewater can be diverted to the sewage line and treated,” sources in the MC said.

The move follows physical surveys of these villages. Thirteen villages were transferred to the municipal corporation around a couple of years back from the Chandigarh administration, the survey of remaining villages is still going on. “We will cover all the villages one by one and inspect them to check wastewater disposal. We are surprised that the UT administration did not bother about such things in the past,” sources said.

Works allotted

Since the MC has received dedicated funds for the development of 13 villages transferred from the administration, its engineering department has allotted majority of the works. Initially, the work of sewage, storm and water supply line worth Rs 50 crore has been allotted.
