HYDERABAD: The Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority (HMDA) will approach the government to direct the Telangana Registration and Stamps Department not to register unauthorised layouts, house site plots and houses in gated community without the production of HMDA approval in 849 villages of  Rangareddy, Medak, Nalgonda and Mahbubnagar. 

The HMDA executive committee which met here on Saturday approved the proposal and gave green signal to HMDA to approach state government to notify unauthorised layouts under section 22-A (1) and to prohibit the Registration and Stamps Department in registering unauthorised layouts and constructions in 849 villages in the above districts.   

The executive committee also gave its approval to withdraw delegation of development control powers to the executive officers and panchayat secretaries of 849 villages falling under the HMDA limits with an aim to check large-scale unauthorised developments and illegal constructions coming up in Nagar and Gram Panchayats.

HMDA officials told Express that as per field realities, it was found that as many as 550 unauthorised developments and illegal constructions have come up. The realtors were creating layouts in the prohibited areas of HADA and catchment areas of Osmansagar and Himayatsagar with  prior dates of HADA notification and GOMs 111.

After the publication of Master Plan 20131 notification, realtors created a large number of fraudulent layouts against  bioconservation and peri-urban use zones.

They said that delegation of development control powers to executive officers and Panchayat Secretaries is not serving any purpose.

The realtors and developers were violating the rules to get approvals by fraudulent means, they added.
