A bill to extend the deadline for a law to protect slums and other unauthorised colonies in the national capital till 2020 was introduced in the Lok Sabha on Friday.

The National Capital Territory of Delhi Laws (Special Provisions) Second (Amendment) Bill, 2017 was tabled in the lower House by Housing and Urban Development Minister Hardeep Singh Puri. It was cleared by the Union Cabinet last week.

Once cleared, the law would extend the validity of the National Capital Territory of Delhi Laws (Special Provisions) Second Act, 2011 for three years from January 1, 2018 — the current deadline for relocation and rehabilitation of slums and other unauthorised colonies in Delhi.

Earlier, the National Capital Territory of Delhi Laws (Special Provisions) Amendment Bill, 2014, which was passed by Parliament in December 2014, had extended the deadline till December 31, 2017.

The law also provides for protection against punitive action by any local authority.
