The Lt Governor, during the review of JDA asked the Vice Chairman to ensure that enforcement staff is sensitized to keep the encroachers of JDA land at bay. He directed the VC to devise a mechanism of ensuring every official of the enforcement wing has a particular land parcel allotted to him for surveillance against encroachment and if at all the said official fails to perform their duty or in any way connives with the encroachers, the said official should be penalized to the extent of dismissal from service, if need be.
