JAIPUR: Giving relief to city residents, the Jaipur Development Authority (JDA) on Friday decided to remove colony gates on sector roads which are over 60-ft wide and not to allow residential welfare societies to put up gates without the permission of zone commissioners.

The decision was taken at a meeting of the traffic control board, in which the officials of JDA, JMC, transport department and traffic board participated.

In a four-part series from February 6 to 9, TOI had published articles on inconveniences caused by colony gates to the public and traffic, the high-handed behaviour of residential welfare societies and problems faced by common people.

JDA enforcement in-charge Raghuveer Saini said that the decisions were taken after listening to the complaints of residents. “We opened 59 colony gates recently. There are many who support gates as they are a form of security. We have regularised them and decided that the gates will be operated by resident welfare associations. They can keep the gates closed from 11am to 5am. Security guards will have to be appointed and one gate has to be kept open at night for the convenience of people.
