Hyderabad: After using the back-to-back polls as the reason for not scrutinising applications filed under Building Regularisation Scheme (BRS), the GHMC now says that it is busy with the monsoon action plan and cannot process the papers.

An official said the BRS scrutiny involves door-to-door verification and the field staff of the town panning wing, who carry out this task, are on monsoon duties.

 

An official said that the BRS scrutiny could be taken up after the monsoon and could involve demolition of unauthorised buildings.

The High Court has asked the civic body to use technology and mark unauthorised constructions which have mushroomed after the BRS deadline ended.

The corporation did not move when the number of illegal constructions was growing at an alarming pace. It then asked the field staff to enumerate unauthorised constructions which came after March 2016.

The staff reported that they had identified only 500 such buildings. The corporation estimates the number at 1 lakh.

 

A senior GHMC official said that it would be possible to take up the BRS scrutiny only after the monsoon. He said the town planning wing would need an additional 100 staff for the purpose. He said the staff would have to physically verify the structures and submit the data to the Centre for Good Governance which would cross-verify it with satellite data.
