Hyderabad: The KCR government is considering extension of deadline of the Land Regularisation Scheme (LRS) by about a month from the existing deadline of October 15.
This will help those who were unable to submit their applications for regularisation of their properties in unauthorised layouts and plots due to various reasons.
Sources claimed the Municipal Administration and Urban Development Department had already submitted proposals for extension of the deadline keeping in mind the huge response from people.
Several elected representatives took up the requests from people to extend the deadline with Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao who is likely to make an announcement in this regard during the Assembly session on October 13 and 14.
It is to mention here that the total number of applications have crossed the 10 lakh mark and if extended, can easily touch 15 lakhs. Hence, the proposal has been submitted to the Chief Minister KCR for final approval,” an official said.
As on Saturday, the State government received about 11.57 lakh applications including 4.66 lakh applications each from both gram panchayats and municipalities. Another 2.24 applications were received in municipal corporations including GHMC. Through application fee alone, the State government has earned nearly Rs 118 crore and the officials are expecting the scheme to be beneficial to both the public as well as the State coffers.
