Hyderabad: In a bid to put an end to unauthorised layouts, the State government has issued notification for implementation of Layout Regularisation Scheme (LRS) for one last time in all urban and rural areas.
The move comes in the wake of the State government’s decision to deny registration of plots purchased in such unauthorised layouts hereafter to ensure planned sustainable development. However, only layouts and plots with registered sale deed/title deed existing as on August 26 this year will be considered for regularisation on payment of prescribed charges.
The LRS also will be applicable to unauthorised layouts developed with at least 10 per cent of plots sold through a registered deed on or before the cut-off date. For regularisation of their plots, the applicants should submit an online application or at Mee-Seva centre in prescribed format along with relevant documents before October 15. They should also pay registration fee of Rs 1,000 in case of individuals and Rs 10,000 in case of layout developers.
The applicants should pay basic regularisation charges at the rate of Rs 200 per sq metre for plot area of less than 100 sq metres, Rs 400 for area of 101 to 300 sq metres, Rs 600 for area of 301 to 500 sq metres and Rs 750 per sq metres for area above 500 sq metres. They also have to pay regularisation charges as per the land value amounting to 25 per cent of market value of land upto Rs 3,000 per sq yard, 50 per cent of market value of Rs 3,001 to Rs 5,000 per sq yard, 75 per cent of market value of Rs 5,001 to Rs 10,000 per sq yard and cent per cent of market value of land for more than Rs 10,000 per sq yard.
Irrespective of the plot area or land value, the plots in slums will be considered for regularisation on payment of nominal charges at Rs 5 per sq. metre. If 10 per cent open space is not available in the unapproved layout, about 14 per cent of the plot value will be charged additionally. If approved, the applicants have to pay all the prescribed charges before January 31, 2021.
Further, the authorities concerned have been instructed to strictly adhere to the existing norms in regularisation of unauthorised layouts. No regularisations will be allowed in the bed of water bodies like river or nala and in the full tank level of lakes, ponds, tanks or kunta and in Shikam lands. Similarly, no approvals will be considered in sites earmarked for industrial or manufacturing zones.
Regularisation of plots will be approved in strict adherence to the existing norms after obtaining necessary clearances from the authorities concerned for plots near the defence or military, and airports.
Further, open spaces earmarked in any approved layouts as well as disputed lands including government lands, endowments lands and wakf lands, will not be considered for regularisation.
