It seems that elite living in Gandhi Nagar of Jammu do not care about any order of government as a result majority of them have not yet removed the encroachments done by them on roads despite an order by JK Housing Board.

Several retired functionaries, businessmen and former judges residing in Gandhi Nagar area of Jammu have encroached upon government roads thus narrowing them and blocking the flow of traffic. These encroachments were erected years ago but no action was taken against them during previous governments.

However last month the J&K Housing Board issued a warning asking all such encroachers to remove the encroachments from roads. Despite the notice and addresses of houses that have encroached upon the roads, no action was taken by the owners of these properties.

The notice also mentioned that some of the encroachers have also installed heavy diesel generator sets on the roads which are causing annoyance to the residents of the colony.
