Get houses regularized in 3 months: KCR
- 125 yards would be made pucca free of cost
- Encroachers to be punished, PDA to be used
Hyderbad, January 5: Telangana Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao today exhorted people, who built houses on government lands, to avail the facility of regularization within the stipulated time or they will be treated as illegal.
Speaking at a high-level review meeting on regularization of houses built by poor on government lands at the Secretariat here on Monday, the Chief Minister said those seeking regularization should apply in 20 days and the process will be completed in three months. Later, there will be no excuse for the same and the rest of the land will be taken back by the government, he clarified.
The Chief Minister said since the government has decided to regularize free of cost the lands up to 125 sq yd, the occupants should apply for regularization immediately. Since the TRS Government wants to have title for every inch of land in the State, it was decided to regularize the illegal structures on government in a proper way, he said. The government will use Prevention of Detention Act to punish the encroachers if they violated the norms, he warned. Those who have occupied government lands will be considered as encroachers and stringent measures will be initiated against them.
The State government has taken a wise and liberal decision to regularize the government lands occupied by poor in order to stop further illegal occupation, he said. “This is the last chance and there will be no second phase of regularization”, he clarified. Those who have occupied 125 sq yd land should apply well in advance to enable the land regularization with any difficulty, KCR said. As the amount for regularization of over 125 sq yd to 500 and beyond those fixed, the illegal occupants should make use of this chance, he said. Otherwise, there will be no another chance for regularization and violators will have to face serious action, he warned. He directed the officials concerned to take necessary steps to regularize the lands on time and take action against those who failed to follow suit. (NSS)
