East Delhi: Inviting trouble for itself, the Municipal Corporation of Delhi has posted a list of illegal constructions here on its own website. The MCD has recorded around 127 illegal constructions in East Delhi over the period of five months.

It is reported that these constructions are thriving due to patronage from MCD officials. According to records of Shahdara South Zone of MCD, 127 illegal constructions were recorded from January 3 to June 6 this year, out of which Pandav Nagar and Mandavali areas have the maximum number of illegal buildings with 14 and 12 buildings, respectively.

Following them are Geeta Colony (11), Jhilmil Colony (9), Vinod Nagar (9) where this business is on the rise.

These constructions have surprised the senior officials of MCD. Deepak Hasteer of South Zone said, “Immediate action against the illegal constructions have been ordered and action has been taken at few places.”

Meanwhile, Chairman of Shahdara South Zone, BB Tyagi, said he is in talks with the MCD to take strict action against the illegal constructions.
