BDA, BMC demolish encroachments in Jaydev Vihar

Bhubaneswar: The Bhubaneswar Development Authority (BDA) and the Bhubaneswar Municipal Corporation (BMC) are intensifying their eviction drive to address man-made flooding in ‘Smart City’ Bhubaneswar.

After razing down encroachments near the ISKCON temple and Nayapalli area, the city administration is now focussing on unclogging the Drain no 4 near Jaydev Vihar by demolishing the structures obstructing the passage of water.

A joint-squad of the BMC, BDA and Drainage division today demolished an illegal building constructed adjacent to the Drain no-4.

Earlier, in 2006, the BDA had issued a notice to demolish the structure built on 24 decimal land. However, since 12 years, the building had not been demolished.

BDA Additional Commissioner, Bhabani Shankar Chayani said the illegal construction on a private land had been obstructing the road master plan and drain. Therefore, it was demolished today, he added.
