Scrap yards are also running illegally. r“Scrap yards, fabrication shops, godown and carpentry shops are running illegally in the area. They have not taken permission from the panchayat or the TCP. Hence, I am directing the panchayat to serve them notices,” Naik said. Naik said opportunity will be given to the occupants to produce relevant documents of their constructions, and if they fail, then the structures will be demolished. rSarpanch Rajesh Kavalekar, who was also present during the inspection, said the occupants have not taken any permission from the panchayat. “The number of illegal structures in the area is increasing. Hence, we will take action against them,” he said. rSince the last many years, these scrap yards are doing business illegally, but the authorities had failed to take action in the matter. The BDO has directed the panchayat secretary to take action under Sections 66 and 66 (3) (4) of Panchayat Raj Act 1994.
