As the four-week high court deadline ended on Friday, teams of Jaipur Development Authority (JDA) reached Amanishah Nullah to hold talks with affected owners.

After the state government submitted a time-bound action plan, the high court directed it to start removing the encroachment after four weeks and submit a compliance report every 15 days.

Officials tried to convince owners to vacate their houses situated in the catchment area of the nullah. The demolition of houses, they said, will begin Monday onwards.

Teams reached Zone 5 comprising Jaganath Puri and Surya Nagar area, where encroachers filled up the consent form to vacant their houses.

In Surya Nagar, seven house owners agreed to fill up the form, while in Jagannath Puri 17 owners came forward. “There are 26 houses falling in the catchment area , however, nine owners were found to be at home today ,” an official said.

Sources claimed that about 250 to 300 houses in the JDA region of the catchment area have been excluded as per the new centerline.

According to reports, JDA has proposed rehabilitation for Jotrdawala and Saypur villages in Zone-8, Aachrawala village in Zone-11 and Mundiya Purohitan village in Zone-12. An official said 30-square-metre plots will be allotted to BPL families and 50 square metre plots to APL families. After a JDA survey, the eligible families will have to formally apply for rehabilitation.

As per court directions, all encroachments in Amanishah Nullah, a dry river bed zigzagging through the city, will have to go by May 2013. The court set a six-month deadline, though the state government had requested for nine months to complete the “unpopular task” that would now have to be completed in the election year.
