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.
