The Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation will hire engineers for disposal of impact fees applications for regularizing unauthorized constructions.
These engineers would be on contractual basis for 11 months, Municipal Commissioner Guruprasad Mohapatra said.
The last date for filing the application is Monday and civic offices will remain open on Sunday to facilitate people to file the applications. Till now the AMC has received 1,58,562 applications for regularizing constructions and only 8,916 have been settled. The AMC has earned Rs.17 crore as income from this.
To settle the remaining cases engineers would be hired specially for this work. They will not be assigned any other work, he said adding that the present staff was over burdened with day to day affairs and hence the need for hiring engineers.
It may be noted that the state government has fixed 28 March 2011 as cut off date for regularizing illegal constructions. Construction done after this date can be demolished, Commissioner said.
