The overview of the Issue
Well, the GMADA action is in news these days and that is for a valid reason. The reason being the existence of unregistered PGs in the Mohali region, Greater Mohali Area Development Authority (GMADA) has ordered all the PG owners to get their official documents ready if they want their existence to last any longer. Without the right and legal documents, no PG would be allowed to run under any condition. This is for the purpose of making the city safe from the unidentified people living in the city and creating any kind of nuisance.
The reason behind the action!
Actually, this looks to be not fair with the PG owners but if you see the case closely, this looks to be the best decision ever taken for the purpose of making all the PGs registers under which all the documents of PGs should be legal, every candidate living in the PG has to undergo proper police verification and there will be a complete documented data of the people living in several PGs coming from different places.
Why GMADA action is necessary ?
The paying guest accommodation business has become a flowering money making business these days. Just by providing a bit of space to anyone the owners are making a lot of money every month and that too without even registering their PGs in the legal manner. GMADA action taken is the right way of making the city safe from strange dangerous. Actually, when it comes to the papers, it is found that more than 500 PGs are being run unregistered in the city just on the name of providing accommodation to the students, office goers and other bachelors. And when it is seen as the overall record, these unidentified bachelors or people are generally found making nuisance in the city without any fear whatsoever. They are openly drinking alcohol, doing the smoking thing and sometimes doing some illegal activities hiding at these PGs.
And when it comes to the owners they are just behind money and not paying any attention to who the person is, where he has come from and what could be the circumstances that may occur later on!
Importance of Registered PGs
If the proper registration of the PGs are done along with the correct police verification of each candidate living in the PG, it will automatically decrease the rate of crimes and nuisance being created in the city. And if all the documentation is done in the right manner, it would be a national duty done by the owners for their city and the country as a whole.
If the owners start asking for the right IDs of the paying guests, then automatically only the genuine people will be staying at their place and there would be very little chance of someone who is hiding their real identity.
So, conclusively we would like to say the action taken by the Greater Mohali Area Development Authority (GMADA) is absolutely right. All the unregistered PGs should be closed down immediately and also the owners of PGs should understand their responsibility towards the city and the nation as a whole.
