PANJIM: Giving a stern warning to those who have illegally converted land, TCP Minister Vijai Sardesai on Thursday said the government is still willing to help them but only until January 1, 2019.

“Those who have purchased/sold sub-divided orchard land must come under an umbrella and approach the TCP Board, otherwise from January 1 we will start police action,” the TCP Minister said addressing the media after the TCP Board meeting.

He said TCP has noted down orchard lands that have been converted and sub-divided. “Those who do not want to come forward and regularise it, we will file FIR with renewed vigour. We will create a separate cell altogether to implement this,” he said.

Citing an example, he said, 76 people from Sarzora who had purchased illegally converted orchard land approached the board and they have cleared their zoning change. “Understand this, the fine would be Rs 10 lakh and imprisonment is one year,” he said.

Asked what is the quantum of land converted, Sardesai said, it is somewhere around 2 cr sq metre. “Also people need to understand whatever zoning change is done the government will benefit,” he said.
