HYDERABAD:Soon residents of Secunderabad Cantonment Board (SCB) may need to get permission from Hyderabad district administration compulsorily for taking up new layouts and constructions in B2 lands (lands belonging to state government falling under Cantonment limits).

Hyderabad district collector K Nirmala had already written a letter to SCB chief executive officer asking SCB to refer all applications for new layouts and constructions in B2 lands to Hyderabad collector office, for getting No Objection Certificate (NOC).

The initiative has been taken as part of Hyderabad district administration’s efforts to streamline the process of protecting state government lands in SCB limits and to put an end to the irregularities occurring in issuing permissions for new layouts and constructions.

Right now, SCB officials are giving permissions to new buildings and layouts in B2 lands taking into consideration the report submitted by local Tahsildar. But Hyderabad administration had decided to put an end to this practice as it was observed that local revenue officials were showing even land in possession of state government as private lands in connivance with private persons, which is leading to the encroachment of valuable government lands.

For issuing permissions to new layouts and new buildings constructions in Hyderabad district falling under Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation limits, a committee headed by Hyderabad Collector meets every fortnight. After the field survey ensuring that the proposed new layouts and constructions do not fall in government lands, a No Objection Certificate would be given.

‘’As Secunderabad Cantonment Board also falls under Hyderabad district limits, we want to follow the same procedure ensure that no government lands are encroached. If SCB refers to us the applications for new layouts, after inquiring at ground level and field survey, if no government land is involved we will issue NOC. We also wrote to SCB to depute an officer for issuing NOCs, whenever applications relating to SCB are considered,’’ Hyderabad collector K Nirmala said.

Besides seeking SCB to direct all new applications to Hyderabad collector’s office, the collector has also asked SCB to revoke all the building permissions given in General Land Record Survey No 243 measuring about 119 acres in Tirumalgherry mandal, as it was found out that layout came up in state government land.
