Mohali administration takes control of land for EWS flats

August 24, 2023

MOHALI: With a view to ensure that residents dislodged from their houses due to demolition of structures falling within the radius of 100 meters from the boundary wall of the Air Force Station do not get deprived of a house, the Mohali administration has taken control of the land earmarked for Economically Weaker Sections (EWS) in various housing society projects.

The displaced residents will first be allotted land at such EWS colonies to reconstruct their houses before going in for the demolition.

The Punjab and Haryana high court had given four weeks to the Mohali administration to complete the rehabilitation process and go in for demolition only once the process is completed.

It must be mentioned that 56 residential structures are to be demolished, whereas 10 commercial structures have already been demolished by the administration.

Mohali deputy commissioner Aashika Jain said, “We are taking no chances in the land allotment process. We have learnt that builders are not keen on developing EWS houses in their projects so we took control of the land in each housing society to develop EWS houses and will now allot such land to residents displaced from the vicinity of the airport.”
