The Minister was speaking after inaugurating a portal developed by the Delhi Development Authority. The portal will define and delineate the boundaries of 1,731 unauthorised colonies using satellite imagery.

Mr Puri said NCT of Delhi (Recognition of Property Rights of Residents in Unauthorised Colonies) Bill, 2019 will be tabled in the current Session of Parliament.

He said more than 40 lakh residents of 1,731 unauthorised colonies will be benefited under Prime Minister- Unauthorised Colonies in Delhi Awas Adhikar Yojana (PM-UDAY).
