“We got the information from native people that the dhaba were running at the forest land for a few years. When we visited the dhaba, the landlord produced faux earnings paperwork and claimed it was not constructed on forest land. However, we got the paperwork verified within the DRO (district earnings place of work) and we came to grasp that the papers have been faux,” mentioned a forest division legit.

We have reported about one (illegal structure) in Kherki Daula too. Also, it is prime time the forest division in Faridabad awoke and took strict action against land mafias. There are many illegal dhabas, go-downs, and porta cabins encroaching upon the forest land within the Aravalis,” mentioned Jitender Bhadana from Save Aravalis, a Faridabad primarily based NGO.
