“All residential properties in unauthorised colonies, where the matter is pending before the MTT (Municipal Tax Tribunal) or other courts, will also get benefit under the scheme,” the statement said.
Leader of the house in SDMC, Sikha Rai, said it becomes difficult to find out the ownership of properties in unauthorised colonies, due to lack of proper sale deed or there being incomplete documentation. “In such cases, the department will accept self-affidavit regarding ownership. The problem will be solved very soon, with completion of the ongoing door-to-door survey of the properties, which includes unauthorised colonies,” she said.
