Chandigarh, July 19

Citing limited commercial and industrial activity, the Local Government Department has reduced Change of Land Use (CLU) charges of residential and commercial areas in the Municipal Corporations (MCs) of Patiala and Ferozepur.

Earlier, the Patiala Municipal Corporation was clubbed with Amritsar, Ludhiana, and Jalandhar.

Sanjay Kumar, Additional Chief Secretary, Local Government Department, said it had been noted that Amritsar, Ludhiana and Jalandhar had far more commercial and industrial potential.

However, Patiala was a much smaller city, which had very little scope for industrial and commercial activities, he added

The urban local bodies have been divided in three corporations on the basis of which CLU fee is charged.

Now, Amritsar, Jalandhar and Ludhiana will be treated as one category. Bathinda will continue to be a separate category. Patiala and Ferozepur have been put in the third category.

Revised Fee

Patiala — Rs 1,950 per sq yd

Ferozepur — Rs 3,900 per sq yd
