The anti-encroachment drive that was started at massive scale by the district administration under the supervision of District Development Commissioner Dr Piyush Singla is going on in its full swing with special emphasis on removal of encroachments along water bodies, state land and kahcharai land.
It started with removing illegal encroachments around the Trout Nallah, a canal near district hospital Duderhama which was a long pending demand of locals.
In a bid to control the odour near district hospital and to enhance the flow of water for irrigation, the district administration is continuously monitoring the drive against encroachments on the embankments of this canal.
Illegal encroachments around the Karkhan Koul are also being removed to keep it clean and maintain its original width. Special task team has been formulated under supervision of respective Tehsildars to take strict action promptly.
So far 37 kanals of Kahcharai and 7 kanals of State land had been retrieved from illegal occupation at Guzhama, Wussan, Nuner Bobsipora and Sonamarg by the district administration.
Dr. Piyush Singla has appealed the people not to encroach upon the irrigation canals. He also said that, demolishing process is going on and will continue till all the encroachments around the Nallahs are removed and appealed the people to cooperate and make this drive successful.
