Hyderabad: The demolitions it carried out on Gurukul Trust lands in the month of July last year, the state government is planning another major demolition drive in the city to raze building on encroached government lands.
Mr Rao instructed officials to treat such property owners as “encroachers” and to deal with them sternly and take over their lands.
“There is no question of giving another opportunity to people so that they can apply for LRS.Two months were given and the deadline was extended by a month. We are in the process of scrutinising the LRS applications and identifying government lands on which illegal buildings exist.
We will treat such property owners as encroachers and deal with them stemly”, said B.R.Meena.The LRS scheme was in force from Jan 1 to Feb 28.While the government had expected to earn about Rs 5,000 crore through LRS, the scheme fetched just over Rs 150 crore.The government received 3.47 lakh applications under the “free LRS for poor” category up to 125 sq.yard which fetch no revenues.
Applicants need to pay 12.5% of the basic registration value at the time of submission, which fetched Rs 150 crore.However, Revenue officials are tight-lipped over action against N-controversy, saying that it falls under different category as the controversy pertains to encroachment of FTL of the Thammidikunta Lake.
