SHILLONG, June 8 - The Directorate of Land Records and Survey has been asked to conduct a fresh survey of the Punjabi Lane area by the high-level committee formed after the recent flare-up here.

Chairing the second meeting of the committee today, Deputy Chief Minister Prestone Tynsong said there is very little information available with the Government about the area.

�The Directorate of Land Records and Survey has been asked to complete the survey work within ten days after receiving the letter from the Urban Affairs Department,� the Tynsong said.

The Deputy Chief Minister added that as of now, it is known that some area falls under the municipal corporation and the rest under the Syiem of Mylliem. However, a clear demarcation of the area is not available.

The high-level committee is also collecting information on the number of Grade IV employees working in various departments, who are residents of the area.

Tynsong said that the last agreement was entered between the Syiem of Mylliem and the residents in 1954 for utilising two plots of land by the Shillong Municipal Board.

One of the clauses of the agreement was for housing the sweepers� quarters and the other was for construction of a shopping complex in the area. But none of these clauses was implemented.
