The state government has extended the deadline, which expires on Tuesday, for applying for regularisation of houses built on encroached government lands in Hyderabad.
As the government has decided not to give any opportunity in future for regularisation of illegal constructions, chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao took a decision on Monday to extend the deadline.
Accordingly, the deadline for regularising the houses constructed in 125 yards and below will be January 31 and will be regularised free of cost. The deadline for applying for regularisation of houses constructed on 125 yards and above will be February 28. Regularisation of illegal houses constructed on lands admeasuring 125 yards and more will be decided as per the fee fixed by the government.
At a review meeting held at his camp office here on Monday with GHMC commissioner Somesh Kumar, the chief minister directed the officials to accord priority to regularisation of houses of the poor. He said that after the regularisation scheme was over, the officials should ensure that there would be no encroachment of government lands by anyone in future.
Union minister Bandaru Dattatreya and ministers Talasani Srinivas Yadav, T Padma Rao, N Narasimha Reddy and officials attended the meeting.
