New Delhi – May 20, 2015: Delhi Government on Wednesday said it will use remote sensing satellite technology to check and map unauthorised constructions and encroachments in the city and that task forces led by sub-divisional magistrates have been formed to stop such activities.

According to a senior official, the move came after the government decided to stop unauthorised construction in the city. The government had earlier announced that it would regularise all unauthorised colonies in Delhi.

“In order to ensure that no unauthorised construction and encroachment takes place in the city, the government has formed task force of SDMs to stop such activities,” the official said.

SDMs would be responsible and accountable for checking any kind of unauthorised construction and encroachment in their respective area. The SDMs would file FIR in case of any such construction or encroachment, the official said.

“We will use the latest techniques to keep a check on any such construction and encroachment by using remote sensing satellite to check and map Delhi for finding out any such construction,” the official said.

With help of remote sensing satellite, officials can do aerial photography, manual videography, remote sensing, terrain mapping to detect construction anomalies in the capital.
