Therefore, In unauthorized colonies the property is not registered so basically the developers do not pay the stamp duties and registration charges that s why many people promote the unauthorized colonies because that land has low price compared to the authorized colonies. The government of Punjab in order to bring all these unplanned colonies in folds of planned colonies had enacted the Punjab Laws (Special Provisions) Act, 2016 , but after the implementation of these policies the government has information that there are still exist a number of unauthorized colonies presently around 7,000 illegal colonies, of which 5,000 were located outside the municipal limits.
