Amaravati: The lands sale and purchase activity came to halt in the 29 villages of Amaravati capital region.
The government issued orders to the registration department to stop land registrations. The people can sell/purchase the lands in the Amaravati capital region and can register them by getting No Objection Certificate (NOC) from the concerned CRDA Competent Authority.
The CRDA is planning to start the process of reconstituted plots distribution from Nelapadu village from June 20. So, as a precautionary measure to avoid confusion during plot allotment, the government imposed ban on registrations for one month. Nelapadu is the first village to offer farmlands to the CRDA under Land Pooling Scheme (LPS) for the construction of the new capital Amaravati. A majority of the farmers of Nelapadu had offered farmlands and the government announced `25 lakh special fund to the village.
The government is planning to start reconstituted plots distribution from Nelapadu village by conducting a big programme. The registration department officials said that they got the ban orders and they would be implemented in Amaravati, Tadikonda and Mangalagiri sub-registrar offices.
The registration department informed that if anyone wants to purchase or sell lands in the 29 villages of Amaravati capital region, they should produce NOC obtained from the CRDA competent authority related to the village. There was mixed response over the ban on the land registrations in the Amaravati capital region.
Pooled farmers N. Manohar and others said that the ban on the land registration would be good as the pooled farmers will get reconstituted plots without any anomalies. But the non-pooling farmers are alleging that the government is trying to snatch their farmlands by banning the land registration.
They lamented that as there would be no purchasers for the farmlands due to registration ban, the non-pooling farmers would be forced to offer their unique multi-crop farmlands in unavoidable circumstances.
Meanwhile, irrigation minister P. Pulla Rao said that people in the capital region need not worry as the ban on registration is only for a month for the smooth performance of plot distribution. He added that ban would be cancelled after completion of plot distribution....
