VIJAYAWADA: The Cabinet Sub-Committee which met at the Interim Government Complex in Velagapudi on Monday to finalise the slab rates for regularisation of encroached government lands in rural and urban areas, decided to give complete relaxation up to 100 sq yd of land of BPL families in rural areas. The lands will be registered free of cost.
The committee headed by Revenue Minister KE Krishnamurthy, recommended to register land up to 100 sq yd for Above Poverty Line (APL) families at 30 per cent of market value in rural areas.
About 50 per cent of market value will be collected for registering the lands between 101 sq yd and 250 sq yd and 75 per cent for lands between 251 sq yd to 500 sq yd.
In urban areas, the committee recommended that 15 per cent of market value should be collected for land up to 100 sq yd from BPL families too. It should be 25 per cent of market value for land measuring 100 sq yd to 250 sq yd and 50 per cent for 251 sq yd to 500 sq yd. The slab rates will be applied for those lands encroached up to January 1, 2014, the committee said.
Finance Minister Yanamala Ramakrishnudu, Municipal Administration Minister P Narayana, Health Minister Kamineni Srinivas and Human Resource Development Minister Ganta Srinivasa Rao were also present.
