The area encapsulated between one boundary wall and the next across the road
It is the job of the municipal bodies and the police to make sure that the Right Of Way is maintained or 'sustained' as the Right Of Way only. Unfortunately, these two setups are themselves corrupt, callous, laid back, and in fact hands in glove. You lodge a complaint and you land in deep trouble. Indians are hugely disorganised, very immoral, quite shameless, are educated idiots, or idiots anyway, and so on. If you point out to a resident about the encroachment, e.g., then this criminal preaches you about 'Community Feeling'! Can you believe that? If you complain to the authorities they actually look carefully at the written text of the complaint and deliberately find a word or phrase or sentence and then 'extract' it and then quote something else out of context and the complaint is sent to a different department and then phoosh. Alternatively they give a bogus or vague or simply dishonest response. And there is no simple way to chargesheet them, though you can do it if you pursue. They also have their connected mafia. They'll try to 'take you out'. So the answer is to have marshalls appointed by the public themselves which can pull up these authorities and the police at every level, 'at every level'.
I can go on about the corruption of the corrupt and the travails of the upright but I guess we all know it.
