Indore : The district administration and Indore Municipal Corporation (IMC) have decided to shift Shekhar Nagar dwellers in next couple of days.
Subsequently, IMC will get a nod to the proposal from Mayor in Council (MIC); thereafter, the admin will start the process of the cancellation of Pattas of dwellers.
The residents of the Shaker Nagar have given consent to shift on June 15 to the officials of the district administration and IMC during a meeting. But, recent floods and evacuation to relief camps had forced them to request the officials to initiate the shifting process as early as possible, Collector P Narahari said.
In view of this new development, the district administration called meeting to discuss the mode of the shifting of the residents on Thursday. The meeting was chaired by Collector P Narahari and attended by IMC Commissioner Manish Singh, ADM Deepak Singh and other officials of administration and IMC attended the meeting.
Sources said that during the meeting, the modality of the shifting the residents were discussed. First the IMC’s MiC will give approval to the proposal of the shifting of the dwellers. Thereafter, the proposal will be sent to collector, who will then initiate the process of the cancellation of the pattas of the residents.
The shifting of the residents would be done under Centre’s Basic Services for Urban Poor scheme.
Under the scheme, over 1500 houses for such people are already built at Nainaod. As per the plan, Shakhar Nagar dwellers would be shifted to Nainod.
It may be recalled that over 1400 families lives on Patta at the Shakhar Nagar. Even the National Green Tribunal has also instructed district administration and IMC to shift the dwellers from the current locality as part of Khan river cleaning project.
