In order to check fake registry, it was also decided to maintain a record of mutation of freehold deeds. The wages of Parshad Pustkalaya workers were increased. Now they would get minimum wages as fixed by the government or the labour department. Members of the board also cleared a proposal to develop 11,000 acres of land between Ganga Barrage and Jajmau.

Giving relief to builders and developers whose buildings have been sealed since last year, Kanpur Development Authority (KDA) passed a proposal for reopening the seal. More than 400 buildings were sealed in the city due to illegal construction activities. The board decided to open the seal of buildings if the builder deposited the security amount along with an affidavit and demolished the unauthorized part of the building. KDA would give time limit and in that period, the builder would have to demolish the unauthorized part. Otherwise, the authority would forfeit the amount and take legal action against builders. If builder would demolish the unauthorized part, then the security money would be returned. Talking to newspersons, KDA vice-chairperson Jayshree Bhoj said builders had to give an affidavit for demolition of illegal construction. The illegal portions of the building would be made compoundable.
