This petition had 23 supporters


As per Works of Defence Act 1903 the area surrounded by ammunition depo are declared as Red-Zone.

What it means for us ?

The red zone is a no-development area around defence establishments like ammunition depots or factories to prevent any damage to human life and property in the event of a mishap at these establishments.

What is opinion of experts? 

According to study of few experts, who worked on this area they have opinion as follows.

  • Red zone limits around an ammunition depot must be of minimum 270m and a maximum of 450m
  • This act rules,  needed to be re-structured according to current situation (logical/practical practices)

Red Zone Impact

  • Development of specific area is hampered.
  • Plot owner not able to do legal construction, so few are choosing different options.

According to Leader Promises

Two year back Mrs. Manohar Parrikar announced that they are taking decision to make uniform red zone in India and after that demarcation get reduced from 2000mtr to 500mtr(<x>mtr).

But as of now there is no announcement/update/any move on this BIG ISSUE…! 

e.g In Maharashtra State, Pune district, PCMC Dehu-Road, Red zone was demarcated under Defence Act, 1903. Declaration was made on around Feb -2013. It is stopping development of that specific area. Also peoples who want to follow process and build there home on such places it's get difficult. But illegally it is possible .....Don't know how ....!
