For the last seven days City of Nis registered more than 10 000 illegally constructed buildings, which were four times more than before, as Mrs. Darinka Djuran, Deputy Minister of Construction, Transport and Infrastructure, said at a press conference held at Nis City Hall. “Nis used to be the worst in the business of legalization; however in recent weeks it has become one of the best cities in registering illegally constructed buildings. Not later than March 10th City of Nis will have a database. The deadline must not be exceeded, “said Mrs. Djuran.
According to Mayor Bulatovic the registering in 10 zones are being done by doubled teams with the help of people from all five city municipalities. So far, the achieved daily average of listed buildings is 950. He stressed that the work would be completed on time and that of the officials from the Ministry of Construction, Transport and Infrastructure gave clear instructions for the work that was applied in the field.
The ministry will control the work of local governments every three months and the priority in the legalization will be given to the family houses and flats, because the Law on the Legalization was passed to help citizens to legitimize their illegal structures. By legitimizing their house the citizens will increase the value of their assets, while local governments will increase significantly the revenues.
