HYDERABAD: The district administration has received more number of applications seeking regularisation of constructions on objectionable lands than those for constructions on unobjectionable lands.

Though GO No.58 says that only constructions on unobjectionable government lands will be regularised, officials expected that many who made constructions on objectionable lands would also apply but did not expect the number to exceed the intended category.

Of the 64,000-odd applications received for regularisation, 36,000 are for regularisation of dwellings on objectionable lands like Shikam lands, private patta lands, assigned patta lands and defence lands.

The administration has classified  applications into 15 categories. Applications related to unobjectionable private patta lands are 12,237, followed by 5,302 of Shikam lands, 4,401 of airport lands, 1,822 of central government lands, 853 of Cantonment lands and 831 of Wakf lands.

There are also applications seeking regularisation of constructions made on encroached nalas, graveyard lands, endowment lands and lands belonging to government departments like roads & buildings and electricity.

Due to the huge number of applications relating to objectionable lands, that too over a wide range of categories, officials are thinking of adopting a multi-pronged strategy in case of each group of applications, depending upon the local conditions and status of applicants.

“Right now, scrutiny of applications with regard to unobjectionable lands is going on and those with regard to objectionable lands have been kept pending. Though all applications regarding dwellings on objectionable lands are to be rejected, we will take up them later and study if there are any applications from a specified area or under special circumstances which may be regularised and recommend the same to higher authorities,” explained land protection officer Kiran Kumar.
