During this period, illegal construction will be removed with the help of 5 JCBs, 3 drill machines (two big, one small) as well as more than 10 dumpers and tractors. 

This is the matter

A 100 feet sector road from Vande Mataram Marg to New Sanganer Road was proposed by the Jaipur Development Authority in the Prithviraj Nagar area. There was a long standing protest by the local residents demanding its construction. Last year, on 16 November 2023, the High Court had ordered to widen the sector road. No action could be taken then.

At the same time, after the formation of the new government in Rajasthan, JDA, citing the court order, issued a notice to the illegal builders in May and gave them one month’s time. But, illegal constructions were not removed. The JDA team has set a target to remove illegal construction from 18th to 21st June.

Benefit from the construction of a 100 feet road

After the completion of the construction of a 1.8 km 100 feet wide link road till Vande Mataram Circle, lakhs of people living in Prithviraj Nagar and Mansarovar will directly benefit from it. This will reduce the pressure of vehicular movement on Ajmer Road and New Sanganer Road as well as other alternative routes. 

Troubled people had filed a petition

Local residents were protesting for a long time demanding the construction of Vande Mataram Sector Road. Some people had filed a petition in the High Court regarding the construction of the proposed road. 

As per a local resident, “This road should have been constructed by the government long ago, so that thousands of people living here could get basic facilities. Passing through this road in the rain becomes like risking your life. Potholes two feet deep on a broken road invite death. In such a situation, people are unnecessarily occupying government land and building.”

Preparation for action in these areas also

Along with this, in future, JDA is preparing to remove encroachments on government land and roads in New Sanganer Road, Prithviraj Nagar, Sirsi, Jagatpura and Ajmer Road areas.
