Police said that around 30 to 32 people had gathered at the site to protest as construction under the housing scheme is yet to begin and they are also not being paid any rent.
According to the police, the residents had gathered despite a ban on any forms of gatherings in the wake of coronavirus pandemic and neither of them had even maintained social distance.
“We have booked them all for violation of public notification and warned them not to gather again at the site,” said a police official.
The project has been in limbo since the beginning. Due to a series of complications regarding land as well as technical issues in the change of stakes of partners of the firm that had taken up the contract, work could not start at the site.
As many as, 2,637 houses are to be constructed at the Sanjaynagar for the urban poor under a public-private partnership project under PMAY.
Vadodara Municipal Corporation had razed 1,841 dwellings there in July 2017 for the project.
