Deputy Commissioner (DC) Kohima, Gregory Thejawelie has informed that dumping/offloading of construction materials on the road within Kohima town has been banned with immediate effect.

According to DIPR report, the order was issued taking note of random dumping of construction materials causing blockage of drainages and waterways, creating traffic congestions, affecting pedestrian movement and causing general pollution to the air and environment.
It also stated that all such materials have to be immediately removed by concerned owners.
In the exigent case where offloading of such materials is inevitable, concerned owner should ensure that such off-loading and removal be made between 8 p.m. to 7 a.m. and not prior or after the scheduled time.
The order further stated that failure to adhere to the directive would be penalised as per provisions of the law.
Meanwhile, in a public notice, the DC informed general public that number of complaints and reports were received on rampant selling and encroachment of government land.
The public notice stated that government’s endeavour was to provide all requisite support to safeguard rights of genuine landowners.
However, it stated that illegal activities of encroachment on government land/ government quarters would be dealt with sternly as per the provisions contained in section 5 (1) and 6 (1) of the Nagaland eviction of persons in unauthorised occupation of public land Act 1971, which entails issuing notice, eviction etc. and in case of illegal occupation may invite imprisonment and fine.
In the matter of sale and purchase of land within the Government Acquired Area and Iand coming under the 1934-35 Map of British conquered area, both the buyer and the seller will be liable for action as this is tantamount to illegal transaction and will attract penalty under appropriate section of law.
Therefore DC has informed any private person or group desiring to purchase land in and around Kohima town and other government acquired areas particularly new secretariat/Thizama and Lerie area to first obtain necessary clearance from DC’s office.
DC further informed that failure in doing so would entail necessary penal action as per relevant provisions of law.
