The drive regarding the invitation of applications for registration from unauthorised colonies for regularisation has evoked a poor response here.
Sources said only 15 applications had been received from around 460 such colonies identified last year. The last date of applying online had been March 31.
Stating that the process of invitation of applications from the residents of unregularised residential colonies was launched from March 1, an official of the Town and Country Planning Department said while 15 applications had been filed by nine RWAs and six developers, the status report had been submitted with the higher authorities in Chandigarh and the next move would depend on the directions from the higher authorities. Though the number of unauthorised colonies within or out of the civic limits could be over 500, a survey carried out last year had detected around 460 colonies which had occupancy of plots or houses between 50 and 100 per cent, the primary condition for lodging an application.
