Nepalgunj: Nepalgunj sub-metropolis has started collecting details of public and encroached lands.
Sub-metropolis mayor Prashant Bista informed that the occupied public land would be evacuated by issuing a 35-day notice. The purpose is to preserve the public property, he clarified. “It is the responsibility of the local level to preserve the public land”, he said. Mayor Bista further said though the data collection has started it will take around three months to implement it. “The metropolis will carry out a study on the buildings constructed without approving map”, he shared, adding, “As public land has encroached in several places, we will come up with a mapping of encroached land”.
All-party consensus would be forged while addressing the issue without being influenced by anyone’s force, the sub-metropolis sources said. The sub-metropolis did not have data on public land before. —
