CM for Relook at Land and Buildings Policy

There is a need to frame separate policies for lands and buildings in the state, chief minister K Chandrashekar Rao has said. Reviewing the plans for development of Hyderabad city at a meeting here on Thursday, Rao asked ministers and MLAs from the city to give priority to development of the city.

Rao reviewed about regularisation of lands, regularisation of unauthorised constructions, adoption of new rules and regulations for giving building permissions and other issues with officials of Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC), Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority (HMDA) and Hyderabad Metropolitan Water Supply and Sewerage Board (HMWS&SB). Expressing his displeasure over the haphazard development of Hyderabad, Rao said efforts should be made for orderly development and expansion.

Addressing the MLAs and ministers, Rao asked them to monitor the unauthorised constructions and also those constructed without permissions. “Whether such unauthorised and illegal constructions be regularised or pulled down?” was the question and the MLAs and ministers should make a study on it.

Emphasising the need to formulate a policy to put an end to unauthorised constructions and land encroachments, Rao asked the MLAs and ministers to give suggestions on reintroducing building regularisation and layout regularise schemes again.

He directed the ministers, MLAs, political leaders from Hyderabad as well as senior officials to continously monitor and make efforts revive the glory of Hyderabad city, he said.

Rao said the GHMC and HMDA should engage the services of senior lawyers to sort out legal issues. He also advised that flying squads be formed by the departments concerned to keep a check on encroachments.With regard to unoccupied Rajiv Gruhakalpa houses, he asked the ministers and legislators to see that they were put to use by the beneficiaries.

The chief minister gave green signal to GHMC for purchasing 2,500 auto tippers for lifting and transportation of garbage and also okayed the design of garbage bins.
