HYDERABAD: The new layout regularisation scheme (LRS) may create hurdles for people living near defence establishments and airport.

As per the ministry of defence (MoD) rules, no-objection certificate (NOC) by local military authority (LMA) is required only if the plot/layout or structure falls within 10-metre radius of a defence establishment, but as per the LRS, issued by the municipal administration and urban development (MA&UD) department, even plots in 500-metre radius need NOC from LMA.

In Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) limits, several areas in Marredpally, Secunderabad, Golconda and Mehdipatnam are in the vicinity of defence establishments. Hundreds of properties in these locations now need NOC from LMA for LRS and future property registrations.

A memo recently issued by the registration and stamps (R&S) department has made it mandatory for either layout approval or building permission for property registrations.

“Yadgiri, a resident of Ramdevguda, Golconda, was served a notice by LMA though his house was not in the 10-metre radius. The LMA asked him to comply with the government norms,” CPM Greater Hyderabad city committee secretary M Srinivas.

Forum For Good Governance (FGG) members said the new LRS would tamper with the city’s master plan. “The master plan was prepared in 2001 with a 20-year vision, but the new LRS rolled out will regularise land that fall under different zones, including forest,” FGG secretary M Padmanabha Redd said.

The R&S department memo would also hit the poor, who want to sell their properties. As per the Telangana Building Rules, houses built in plot area less than 75 square yards do not require building permission, but ironically the new memo bans property registrations sans building permission, Harish Daga, a civic activist, said.

Telangana government expects to raise Rs 800 crore from Swagruha flats’ auction – ET RealEstate

HYDERABAD: The state government is expecting to raise over Rs 800 crore through the auction of Rajiv Swagruha flats.

Knight Frank, real estate consultants of international repute, has been selected through bidding to evaluate the market price of the vacant 3,716 flats in Bandlaguda and Pocharam Rajiv Swagruha townships.

The consultancy has also been asked to submit a report on the expected revenue if the flats are auctioned individually or to real estate giants in one or two lots. The report should be submitted within 10 days to the government.

Though the government has decided to auction the flats on “as is where is” basis i.e., without carrying out any further repairs or adding infrastructure to it, a final call will be taken by chief minister K Chandrasekhar Rao after the report is submitted to him.

R&B minister Vemula Prashant Reddy said the guidelines for auction-cum-sale of Swagruha flats are being finalised. The prices for sale of flats would be fixed by taking into consideration its saleability in the open market. There are a total of 3,716 flats that are lying vacant in the townships at Bandlaguda and Pocharam.

In 2007, then-government in undivided AP had announced Rajiv Swagruha housing scheme for urban middle class. For this, Andhra Pradesh Rajiv Swagruha Corporation Limited (APRSCL) was established.

After Telangana state’s formation, APRSCL cleared bank loans and released all projects from mortgage. In 2016, the government decided to allot the flats at Bandlaguda and Pocharam to government staff, but there were hardly any takers.
