AHMEDABAD: Gandhinagar Municipal Corporation is all set to begin anti-encroachment drive in the newly added areas of the civic body. GMC officials said that currently the civic authority is carrying out a survey of the new areas.

“We have begun property survey in newly added areas to unearth property tax violations. We will launch an anti-encroachment drive as soon as the survey is complete,” said a GMC official.

In June 2020, the GMC’s periphery recorded the largest expansion in the state, increasing from 177 sq km to 326 sq km. One municipality, 18 village panchayats and parts of seven other village panchayats from Gandhinagar Urban Development Authority (GUDA) and Ahmedabad Urban Development Authority (AUDA) were merged with GMC.

GUDA villages merged with GMC include Raisan, Kudasan, Sargasan known as New Gandhinagar, Koba and Amiyapur. The Pethapur municipality was also merged with GMC during this expansion. Koteshwar, Bhat and Zundal were merged to GMC from AUDA.

The official said that approximately 1, 20,000 residential and commercial properties are located in the newly merged areas. “There may be over 10,000 property rule violations in the new areas,” the official said.
