Encroachers near Andhra Pradesh CM’s bungalow get house sites – ET RealEstate

GUNTUR: In an attempt to widen the narrow road leading to chief minister Y S Jagan Mohan Reddy’s bungalow at Tadepalle, the Guntur district administration granted house sites to 283 families who were identified as encroachers of canal land.

The administration has also sanctioned houses under the YSR Jagananna housing project. The chief minister’s camp office road-widening will be taken up after evacuation of the families.

The CM had directed officials not to remove any of the dwellings located opposite his bungalow in Amarareddy Nagar in Tadepalle after taking over the reins of the state about two years ago. He also met some of the dwellers and promised them support and directed security personnel not to cause any trouble to the residents. However, senior police officials including from the intelligence wing convinced the chief minister of removing encroachments from the camp office road in view of growing security concerns.

With the road leading to the CM’s bungalow being only 30-feet-wide, cabinet ministers and senior officials face trouble in maneuvering their vehicles. Taking security and traffic reasons into consideration, the district administration decided to widen the road and sought the CM’s permission.

According to sources, the CM has given the green signal for evacuation after several rounds of discussions with officials. The CM also directed officials to grant two cents of land to all evacuees against one cent granted under the YSR Jagananna housing project and granted them additional compensation for rehabilitation.

All the dwellers are staying in thatched houses.

“We will give full support to the beneficiaries in completing the construction of their houses as they have been staying in thatched houses for several decades,” said Mangalagiri legislator Alla Ramakrishna Reddy.

He added that they would complete roads, drinking water facility and drainage in the colony before the completion of houses.

Amaravati development body & Vijayawada civic body to identify illegal buildings – ET RealEstate

VIJAYAWADA: Amaravati Metropolitan Region Development Authority (AMRDA) and Vijayawada Municipal Corporation (VMC) have begun a special drive to identify illegal constructions.

The deadline for the Building Penalisation Scheme (BPS) ended on 31 December 2020.

Amaravati region, especially Vijayawada, became a hub for real estate after the city became a part of the capital region in 2015. Many builders started group houses that resemble apartments. Most of these constructions had deviations and were constructed by acquiring panchayat plans in 2016. Several middle class families had invested in these flats considering their affordable price.

The then TDP government started BPS scheme in August 2018 and it was extended till December 2020 for various reasons. But many builders and flat owners ignored to complete the penalisation process by submitting necessary documents and penalty charges.

Most of the illegal constructions are half finished group houses and the plan validity of many of these apartments has lapsed. The AMRDA and VMC started issuing notices to illegal constructions asking them to demolish voluntarily. Authorities have given them two months to demolish the structures.
Amaravati development body & Vijayawada civic body to identify illegal buildings“Owners of illegal constructions missed the last chance to pay penalties for their houses. Most of these apartments acquired plans from panchayats before inception of Amaravati Capital Region Development Authority (APCRDA). These plans are now inactive and there is no chance of renewal. There is no alternative remedy,” said a senior official at city planning wing of AMRDA.

Meanwhile, plot owners who invested huge money in these buildings are now in limbo with the notices issued by AMRDA. “We have paid Rs 10,000 as token amount for BPS and are waiting for our builder to complete the process. We just came to know after APCRDA stocked notices to the building. Government should give us another chance,” said Rokkam Surya Rao, a buyer from Nidamanuru.
