There are certain principles under which authorities plays very pivotal role.
1. Unauthorised, unlawfull, illegal are different abbreviation having different connotations in law .
so as far authorisation of construction is concerned MCD can grant permission in Unauthorize colony. but you can not claim amenities because the entire area is not notified colony. Therefore unauthorised colony and authorise construction both are two different things, and MCD can permit for construction in an authorised colony.

The answer can be understood only after knowing the exact location of the property.
If colony os not authorized but property is authorised then mcd can be used.
But only mcd can tell the exact situation because they know the status of that colony.
