GAYA: After floundering with cosmetic anti-encroachment drives, the railways has finally hit hard against illegal occupants of its staff quarters and vacant land.
One official estimate says more than 400 of the 1,500 staff quarters of railways in different Gaya localities are illegally occupied. Besides, nearly 50 'khatals' have come up over the years on its land in Gaya.
According to divisional assistant engineer Vikram Seth, who is in charge of the railways' estates, about 100 staff quarters have either been sealed or demolished after eviction. The abandoned dwelling units are being demolished
while the units fit for living are being sealed, he said.
Refusing to go on record on the number of quarters under illegal occupation and 'khatals', Seth said about 20 units were demolished and other 80 sealed. About 20 'khatals' have also been removed, he said. On the steps being taken to prevent reoccupation of evicted quarters, Seth said the sealed dwelling units could not be occupied without breaking the seal, which is not easy. The structures built by 'khatal' owners are also being demolished during the 'khatal'-removal drive, he said.
Asked if criminal cases would be lodged against illegal occupants and the railway staff who have sublet official quarters allotted to them, Seth said such a decision had to be taken at a higher level and he was not authorised to do so. The railways, it may be recalled, is said to be the biggest owner of real estate in the Gaya Municipal Corporation area as it owns, besides more than 1,500 residential quarters/bungalows, big chunks of open land in prime localities. Favouring institution of criminal cases against the illegal occupants and their patrons, Congress leader Mohd Moosa said things would come back to square one after the eviction drive if punitive action was not taken against the wrongdoers.

Hereafter Railway Quarters have to be constructed as minimum 3 floors in Town Panchayat,minimum 5 floors in Municipality, minimum 7 floors in cities and minimum 18 floors in Metros.
The available Railway lands are effectively utilized.Other lands may be utilized for Railway infrastructure purposes.
