The Govt. of Punjab vide it’s Notification No.GSR. 41/PA14/1995/Ss 38 & 45/ Amd (2)/ 2010 dated 09-12-2010 has amended the PAPRA Rules, 1995 to incorporate the provisions for compounding the offences under the various provisions of the PAPR Act for the violation of the provisions of the PAPR Act, 1995 by developing unauthorized colonies.
During last 2-3 decades numerous unauthorized colonies have come up in the State of Punjab. The problem being faced by the State and people living in these colonies is that they have been kept without basic amenities like water supply, sewerage and adequate roads etc. Therefore, in order to bring all these unplanned areas into the fold of planned development and to provide basic amenities and a better quality of life to the public, it would be appropriate to formulate a policy under the provisions of The Punjab Laws (Special Provisions) Act, 2013 by which the violators can be punished financially rather than physically i.e. by compounding their offences and those who have fallen into the trap of unscrupulous and greedy persons should be provided basic amenities but at a cost. Keeping, this in view the policy for one time regularization of these unauthorized developments and constructions is framed.
