Yet no action has been taken in respect of illegal construction", the order said adding that the report placed before us by Pran Singh, CEO, Patnitop Development Authority also discloses that as per the spot inspection by the Committee, a large number of hotels, who were granted permission of the area approved for construction have encroached upon large amount of public property or have illegally constructed way beyond the area.
