KOLKATA: With instructions from the state government to protect its land in the city from illegal encroachments, specially at Nonadanga and Baisnabghata Patuli area and other places on both sides of EM Bypass earmarked under the East Kolkata Area Development scheme, the KMDA is conducting surveys to identify such plots and set up boundary walls to protect them from unauthorised encroachment.
KMDA have already identified one such plot opposite Nonadanga bus stand. The authorities will engage an agency which will construct the boundary wall around it.
“The urban development department minister has instructed that boundary walls be set up to check and prevent government properties from being illegally encroached or occupied. This has been a standing policy to see that government land is not encroached upon. It has been noticed there are many such plots which have been encroached upon and a fresh attempt is being done to prevent this,” said a KMDA official.
Surveys are going on in east Kolkata area to find out the condition of all vacant KMDA plots and to send proposals to the government as to which of them needs to be fenced off with boundary walls, the official added.
