Hyderabad: Following the Hyderabad High Court’s direction to issue a notice before initiating action against the N Convention Centre, which is owned by actor Nagarjuna, GHMC commissioner Somesh Kumar said on Wednesday that the management of N-Convention Centre would receive the notice “very shortly.”

“GHMC is in consultation with the Law department. On receiving a legal opinion, notices will be issued,” he said. Regarding the spread of unauthorised buildings at Gokul Land at Hafeezpet, the municipal body will take up a detailed study and identify the illegal constructions.

 

The concerned town planning officials will initiate a survey and study on these encroachments. The commissioner said that these were not similar to the Ayyappa Society or Gurukul land cases as the illegalities at Hafeezpet related to small plots. Few builders had acquired stay orders and even sought permission to construct, he said.

“We are working out a way by which people are made aware of the implication of going for any illegal constructions. It is mandatory for everyone to acquire the occupancy letter,” he said.

Advocate-general tell court full tank level not fixed yet

Justice A. Rajasekhar Reddy of the Hyderabad High Court, while disposing of two petitions by Nagarjuna in the N Convention case, said: While recording the submissions of the Advocate-General, appropriate notice will be issued to the petitioner under relevant provisions of law. He then disposed of the petitions.

Prior to the disposal of the petitions, advocate-general K. Ramakrishna Reddy had continued his arguments reiterating that the N Convention is an unauthorised and illegal structure. P. Sriraghuram, the senior counsel appearing for actor Nagarjuna, complained to the court that the authorities had forcibly entered the premises of his client and had pasted notices on the walls of the structure.
