Ghaziabad Authority allocates office space for child welfare
The Ghaziabad Development Authority (GDA) has allocated office space for Juvenile Justice Board (JJB) and child welfare committee (CWC) in Karpooripuram, Ghaziabad.
The Authority has handed over a duplex building measuring 112 sq m for the purpose in lieu of a monthly rent of Rs 12,000.
According to officials, the space was allocated following an order by the Allahabad High Court.
“The court order was issued nearly two years ago. The building has been handed over following completion of necessary formalities,” said Gyanendra Verma, joint secretary, GDA. It has been given for five years or till an alternative office is arranged by GDA. The high court had issued the order based on the recommendations of a monitoring committee headed by the district judge of Ghaziabad formed to trace missing children.
The handover was delayed due to an order issued in 2001 by the UP housing department which restrained GDA from allotting any buildings for rent.
