In a decisive move to enforce urban planning regulations, Guwahati authorities have launched a major crackdown on illegal constructions across the city. This initiative aims to curb unauthorized developments and ensure the safety and compliance of building structures.

The crackdown follows numerous complaints and reports of rampant illegal constructions, which have raised significant concerns about safety and adherence to building codes. The city administration has identified several areas where unauthorized buildings have sprung up, often without proper permits and in violation of zoning laws.

Teams from the Guwahati Municipal Corporation (GMC) and other relevant authorities have been dispatched to various parts of the city to inspect and take action against these illegal structures. Buildings found to be in violation of regulations are being marked for demolition, and legal notices are being issued to the owners.

An official from the GMC stated, “This action is part of our ongoing efforts to ensure that all constructions in the city adhere to legal and safety standards. Unauthorized buildings not only pose a risk to their occupants but also disrupt the planned development of the city.”

The initiative has been met with mixed reactions from the public. While many residents support the move, recognizing the importance of regulated urban development, others have expressed concerns about the immediate impact on those living in or operating businesses from these structures.

Authorities have assured that the crackdown is being conducted with due diligence, and all affected parties are being given notice and support to comply with regulations. The GMC is also encouraging residents to report any suspected illegal constructions in their neighborhoods to aid in the efforts.

This crackdown on illegal constructions is seen as a crucial step towards sustainable and safe urban development in Guwahati. By enforcing building codes and regulations, the city administration aims to prevent potential hazards and ensure a well-planned urban environment for its residents.

As the operation continues, authorities are emphasizing the need for public cooperation and awareness to maintain the integrity and safety of the city’s infrastructure.
