BHUBANESWAR: The Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation (BMC) authorities on Friday held a meeting at Raghunathpur, the rehabilitation and relocation site of Banaphula Basti, and discussed issues faced by inhabitants of the area.
It was observed that many dwellers, who had been residing at Banaphula Basti, did not find their names in the list prepared by BMC for relocation to Raghunathpur.
The authorities decided to examine the claim of aggrieved residents and submit a fresh report of the occupants.
The eligible households enlisted under Rajiv Awas Yojana, who were deprived under the rehabilitation scheme during eviction, will be given a token for occupancy after due verification.
Other than eligible token holders, those who have forcibly occupied areas in the relocation site at Raghunathpur, will be evicted.
“In case, it is found that any token holder at the relocation site has either sublet or sold the allotted space in any manner, the allotment shall be cancelled immediately, thereby evicting both the seller and purchaser from the site,” a BMC official said.
Besides, measures to install street lights, potable water facility and clearance of chocked drains will be expedited.
Bhubaneswar Development Authority (BDA) has been entrusted with the responsibility to begin construction work of toilets from April 8 at the relocation site. Health camps with routine immunisation will be held here on a monthly basis.
This apart, a financial support of `6000 will be handed over to each eligible household after completion of construction of their houses, sources said.
