HYDERABAD: A division bench of Hyderabad High Court on Tuesday sought response from authorities concerned in a case pertaining to mushrooming of illegal structures in various locations of the twin cities of Hyderabad and Secunderabad and Rangareddy district by taking advantage of the Building Regularisation Scheme (BRS) and also illegal constructions being made by individuals/ builders in the jurisdictional area falling within the jurisdiction of the AP Capital Region Development Authority (CRDA).

The bench of Acting Chief Justice Ramesh Ranganathan and Justice Shameem Akther was dealing with a taken up PIL case based on a news item published in a vernacular daily. The news item alleged that the officers have become mute spectators and colluding in many cases while the illegal structures are coming up and citizens are protesting. Officers of GHMC, HMDA, commissioner of Guntur municipal corporation and others were asked to respond by filing counter affidavits. The bench posted the matter after four weeks for further hearing.
