With LS polls coming, govt sees merit in drive launched by Gehlot govt.

Chief minister Vasundhara Raje has decided to carry forward the Prashasan Shehron Ke Sang campaign launched by the Ashok Gehlot government.

This campaign will continue till January 31 and all the applications received till this date will be disposed by March 31 or before the code of conduct for the general elections comes into force.

Under the campaign, the government will take up applications related to stamp duty, regularisation and regularisation-related relaxations and rebates.

The Ashok Gehlot government had launched this citizen drive - Prashasan Shehron Ke Sang campaign during the last few months of its tenure to address issues related to regularisation of colonies on agriculture land, encroachments on government land, building map plan approvals, development plans etc.

Now expecting political mileage in the upcoming Lok Sabha elections through this campaign, the BJP government has also decided to continue with the drive. Following the extension of this drive, as many as 60,000 plot regularisation cases pending with Jaipur Development Authority, 30,000 applications pending under State Grant Act in JMC and Kachchi Basti regularisation matters will be taken up.

Under the drive, the Gehlot-led government had declared various relaxations on October 17, 2012 and later the empowered committee had announced more relaxations to the applicants. The drive launched in October 2012 was extended thrice but was finally called off on September 30, 2013. The Congress government was supposed to dispose off all the applications received till September 30, 2013 by December 31, 2013 but it could not do so as the election code of conduct came into force. Now, the BJP government has decided to reinitiate the drive. The official orders of its extension were issued by principal secretary of urban development and local self government department, DB Gupta, on Thursday.

Now citizens can file their applications under the drive till January 31 and these applications will be disposed off till March 31 or before the code of conduct for the Lok Sabha election comes into force.
