But in realism is to attract who holding big plots instead of poor. The submission of applications for the scheme started on Wednesday, has been receiving tepid response from poor families but, it’s witnessing heavy rush from owners of big plots in expensive areas of the city. While the scheme is mainly proposed at regularising lands free of cost for poor families owning up to 125 sq. Yards but this is misused by big plot owners too.
To regularise their expensive land by submitting applications and offering money to get their work done the people are coming in top-end cars to meet The tahsildars’ offices at Shaikpet, Khaira-tabad, Balanagar, Asif-nagar mandals etc.
On Friday a person, who claimed to be the owner of 500 sq. yards of illegal land at Jubilee Hills belonging to the government, on which he has built a house, visited the Shaikpet tahsildar’s office for seeking regularisation. He told that as per market his plot worth is 9crore and it could be regularised by paying Rs 1.5 crore. Brokers can’t be far behind as the stakes are high as this.
The brokers who are clamping at the tahsildars’ offices ever since the government announced the scheme, claiming to be revenue officials ‘agents’, are trying to a lot of money in the shortest possible period.
Till Friday the govt received 290 applications, most of them from expensive areas. They covers upmarket areas like Banjara Hills and Jubilee Hills received 70 and 40 applications respectively in the MRO offices at Shaikpet, Khairatabad,
