Kolkata: Acting upon the grievances during 'Talk to KMC' programme, Firhad Hakim, chairman of Board of Administrators, Kolkata Municipal Corporation instructed officials of the civic body to scan previous records where buildings have been constructed onland after filling up of water bodies.
If we come across irregularity in land records, then we should rectify the same," reiterated Hakim.
According to Hakim, during the Left Front rule several water bodies were filled up particularly in the extended parts of the city and land was sold in parcels.
But, now all water bodies have come under google monitoring to thwart any attempts of such filling up of ponds.
He added that 50 per cent of water bodies in Behala and Thakurpukur area have been filled up illegally during the Left Front rule, disturbing the ecological balance in the area.
