CEO of District Panchayat Siddharth Jain, Additional Commissioner of IMC Siddharth Jain and other officers were present in the meeting.

Collector Singh directed that action should be taken effectively to remove encroachment from Saraswati and Kanh rivers located in the city. All encroachments should be listed in the next two days. It was said that in the year 2019, a list was prepared after conducting a survey regarding encroachment of these two rivers. He instructed that if there are more encroachments after this, then a list of those should also be prepared. Notices should be served to the encroachers.
