Notice period before demolishing illegal construction
In my town Bangermau, District Unnao (Uttar Pradesh), on Nanamau Road, all houses and shops have been built few meters beyond their limits and hence they are very close to the main road. On January 6, 2015, there was a sudden order to demolish all such constructions to make way for new broader road construction, without any prior notice. All houses and shops were immediately demolished, leading to loss of lakhs of rupees and property.
My question is: Does not the rule provide for any notice period which can be used by the residents to prepare for such actions.

Apparently, the demolition was carried out under orders from state CM who happened to pass through this road a day before and was stuck in traffic jam. He sent out a full police force the next day to handle any opposition from the residents. I want to file an RTI regarding the same to know why the notice was not given and under what rules was the demolition carried out. Do you think it will help? If yes, against which department and public authority should I file it?
