Ahmedabad: Ahmedabad has got a place in the World Heritage City. The government has made a special law for the preservation of heritage sites but this law is proving to be like a tiger without a canal. In Ahmedabad, it seems as if those who damage the heritage are getting a free ground.
Ahmedabad completed 612 years. But the identity of the city has been changing over the years. Once known for its gates and gates, Ahmedabad is today known as a heritage city. Which is a matter of pride for Ahmedabadites. But it is sad to say that the heritage of Ahmedabad, the first heritage city of India, is getting an open field for those who damage it. The government has also made a special law for the preservation of heritage heritage.
However, looking at various cases and facts, it seems that this law has failed. Monuments and Archaeological Rights and Remains Act-2010 has been implemented to preserve heritage buildings or structures. In which special provisions have been made for the preservation of heritage sites and measures to be taken against elements that damage them. But due to ignorance of the law, flawed investigation, not a single case has been proved according to this law, due to which the accused are acquitted.

If any construction is to be done within 300 meters of the Indian Heritage property, it is mandatory to take permission. If any person constructs without it, it is an offense against him. But the 300 meter sign has not been put up anywhere and if any construction is seen in such a case, the officials do not check the site. Not a single case has been punished since the law came into existence. Because instead of visiting the site, the officials of the archeology department issue notices and give such answers while sitting in the office.
