CHANDIGARH: Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal on Thursday asked the local bodies and development authorities to look into the issues of real estate developers and come out with needful recommendations to resolve their genuine grievances. A delegation of realtors met him with their demands.
Sukhbir asked the delegation to submit a detailed charter of demands to him so that adequate steps could be taken for their facilitation. He also fixed next meeting with the realtors on July 24 to discuss their demands. He said that on the demand of developers, Punjab Government had already rationalised (lowered) the collectors rates almost in all districts and assured that their pending issues would also be sorted out.
He said Punjab has introduced new housing policy, full advantage of which should be taken by the developers with a focus on affordable houses to economically weaker sections (EWS) of society. He also informed the delegation that in one year Punjab would extend all basic amenities in urban as well as rural areas of the state at a cost of Rs. 4000.
