HYDERABAD: In a set back to some private individuals, the Hyderabad High Court on Tuesday imposed prohibitory order banning sale of flats and further constructions in an apartment complex near Hitech city railway station in the city.
Justice A V Sesha Sai was passing this order in petitions filed by N Srinivasa Rao and several others seeking court direction to restrain the GHMC officials from interfering in their land comprising apartments.
The petitioners contended that they have raised stilt plus five floors on a land admeasuring 299 square yards in MCK Block No.2 situated at Gopalnagar cooperative house building society limited, Hydernagar village in Kukatpally municipality. Besides, flats were constructed on two plots admeasuring 514 square yards each in the same block.
On the other hand, the GHMC counsel brought to the notice of the court that the petitioners (private individuals) have occupied the government land and with the help of forged documents have had raised hundreds of flats spread over 60,000 square feet area without any permission. The alleged regularisation certificates and the survey numbers mentioned in the petitioners’ plea were fake. The question of regularization would arise only if the completed structures were raised before 2015.
After hearing both sides, the judge imposed prohibitory orders banning sale of flats and any further constructions in the area. While adjourning the case hearing, the judge sought for filing counter affidavits on the issue within two weeks.
