The Union Cabinet on 29 December 2014 approved promulgation of an Ordinance on Delhi Laws (Special Provisions) Amendment Bill, 2014. The ordinance was approved in a Cabinet meet chaired by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi in New Delhi.

The ordinance seeks to amend the National Capital Territory of Delhi Laws (Special Provisions) Second Act, 2011 so as to regularise unauthorised colonies in Delhi.

After amendment, all the unauthorised colonies that have come up till 1 June 2014 will now be regularised. Previously, the cut-off date for regularisation of unauthorised colonies was 31 March 2002.

This will provide the benefits accruing from regularisation to 60 lakh people residing in 895 unauthorised colonies of Delhi that have come in existence between 31 March 2002 and 1 June 2014.

The amendments were proposed against the backdrop of unsatisfactory experience of Delhi government in regularising the unauthorised colonies. Thus, Delhi government had sought extension of cut-off date for regularization to bring planned constructions in these colonies under existing building bye-laws and other applicable rules.
