HYDERABAD: Telangana government is considering regularisation of encroached government land in the state especially in Greater Hyderabad. The government six years ago came up with a similar scheme under GO 58 and GO 59.
While Go 58 was issued to regularise plots up to 125 square yards to the poor free of cost, GO 59 is to regularise the lands by collecting basic value of the land depending upon the size of the plot area.
Ministers KT Rama Rao and Talasani Srinivas Yadav held a review meet on the status of government lands including endowment land and their protection with chief secretary Somesh Kumar, principal secretary of municipal administration Arvind Kumar, revenue officials from Hyderabad, Ranga Reddy and Medchal. MLAs D Sudheer Reddy, Arikepudi Gandhi and Vivekanand said the government should consider regularising lands under possession by individuals. The government has decided to do geo-fencing and GIS mapping of the land. “Both GHMC and revenue departments should protect the government land. No illegal construction should come up on vacant government land,” the ministers directed. They also discussed about government land given on lease as many land parcels were given at a cheap prices and need to be reviewed. In a separate meeting on Musi river front rejuvenation, a decision has been taken to fence the catchment areas.“CCTVs will be installed and a command control centre will be set up to prevent encroachments on Musi bund,” KTR said.
