Implementation of model code of conduct has become a cause of concern for the financially stressed Jaipur Development Authority (JDA). As the regularisation camps have come to a halt, the JDA temporarily loses a major revenue source. This has come to impact the Prithviraj Nagar area the most where hundreds of colonies still await regularisation. 

“We have made a request to the Election Commission to permit regularisation camps, an official confirmation is still awaited,” says a senior officer at JDA. 

“There are more than 250 such colonies in the area and regularisation of these is expected to yield nearly Rs 500 crore revenue,” he adds. 

The revenue becomes crucial for the authority, as the area remains in desperate need for basic facilities. The demand of development continues to gain speed ahead of assembly elections while regularisation camps get under speculations of possible impact on voters. 

“The regularisation process can wait for another month, these colonies are in immediate need for development. The JDA needs to provide people a breakup of the regularisation fee collected from the area till date,” says Ghanshyam Singh, a local resident of PRN scheme. 

It had been after a pause of more than a year that the regularisation process has commenced at JDA. The development authority has incurred loss of expected revenue and has long list of development works pending ahead of the elections. 

Meanwhile at PRN, local politics continues to gain pace on demand for basic facilities. There are nearly a lakh people residing in more than 800 colonies of the area spread over two Assembly constituencies. 

Most of these colonies have emerged in absence of any formal approval and planning.  The increasing population has further created difficulties for the residents and development pace has been slow. 

Over 400 colonies of the area are under regularisation process and are estimated to yield revenue of several hundred crore rupees for the authority.
