Land Not Used for Allotted Purpose

Most of the land allotments made during (2006-11) were found to have been in vain as the land was not utilised for the allotted purpose. The CAG report cited the case of APIIC’s allotment of land to 10 hospitals for establishment of a ‘Health City’ in Visakhapatnam. The stipulated time frame was two years and there was a proviso that the hospitals must provide free treatment to least 10 per cent of their out-patients and to students of government residential schools. However, the CAG report found that none of the entrepreneurs had established their hospitals as of July 2001.

Similarly, 615.43 acres were allotted to 58 units in Hardware Park at Maheswaram near Hyderabad. Of these 36 units have not completed their projects. Further, 11.97 acres of this land was allowed to be diverted to five units for commercial purposes like hotels and offices. In about 25 other cases, about 5,520 acres were allotted to various companies for different purposes but the land was not utilised for the allotted purpose.
