Synopsis:
The Bill replaces the National Capital Territory of Delhi Laws (Special Provisions) Second (Amendment) Ordinance, 2020 which was promulgated by President Ram Nath Kovind on December 30, 2020 to extend the validity of the Act of 2011 for a period of three years from January 1, 2021, to December 31, 2023..

Ch. Anil Kumar said that the introduction of the NCT of Delhi (Special Provision) Amendment Bill 2021 in Rajya Sabha, to give immunity from the demolition of constructions in Delhi like unauthorized colonies, JJ Clusters etc. for three more years, which was first moved in 2006 while preparing the Master Plan for 2021, is a betrayal on the poor people, as the BJP and the Aam Aadmi Party had promised in their election manifestoes that all the 1799 unauthorised colonies would be regularized.

Ch. Anil Kumar said that neither the Modi Government, nor the Aam Aadmi Party Government, was doing any development works in these colonies, and even the works started by the Congress Government to provide basic and other facilities to these colonies, have been stalled.

The Upper House of parliament on Tuesday passed the National Capital Territory of Delhi Laws (Special Provisions) Second (Amendment) Bill, 2021 to regularise unauthorised colonies in Delhi.

The Bill replaces the National Capital Territory of Delhi Laws (Special Provisions) Second (Amendment) Ordinance, 2020 which was promulgated by President Ram Nath Kovind on December 30, 2020 to extend the validity of the Act of 2011 for a period of three years from January 1, 2021 to December 31, 2023.

“1.35 crore people of Delhi, those living in unauthorised colonies, will get their ownership right,” minister of state (independent charge) of housing and urban affairs Hardeep Singh Puri said in Rajya Sabha.

The Bill provides protection to certain forms of unauthorised developments in Delhi from punitive action where adequate measures are yet to be taken.

Puri said that tenders have been floated for “Jahan Jhuggi Wahan Makaan”. He added, “Delhi will not only benefit from the improvement in living conditions of 1.35 crore people but the Central Vista project will also make Delhi one of the finest cities in the world.” The minister said that the number of 1.35 crore is expected in the next census later this year.
