Steps On To Check Benami Registration Of Lands, Says Ali
Hyderabad: Deputy Chief Minister Mahmood Ali, who is in charge of the Revenue Ministry, declared in the State Assembly that the state government had ensured that there would be no scope for benami or illegal land registrations under the anywhere registration scheme.
Replying to a question by TRS member Srinivas Goud during question hour, the Deputy CM said that the state government had taken all steps to check illegal or benami registration of lands in the state. He also asserted that no loss was sustained by the government with regard to registration of non-agriculture lands as agriculture lands under the anywhere registration scheme.
As regards government ULC and Wakf lands registered illegally under the scheme, Ali said that in 183 documents registered, it was prima facie found that they pertained to prohibited properties. The actual number of documents registered containing prohibited properties would be known only after an enquiry.
However, he made it clear that no benami registrations had taken place under the scheme. A system has been introduced wherein the concerned sub-registrar would verify thoroughly any prohibitory lands come for registration and only after ensuring that there was no illegal dealing then only the registration formality would be completed, he added.
