KADAPA: As Y. S. Jagan Mohan Reddy’s government came to power in the state, real estate business allegedly got a boost in Kadapa district, particularly in Kadapa city. So many illegal real estate ventures have allegedly formed in outer areas of Kadapa city, without getting any required permission.
Almost 20 ventures have formed in the outer areas of Rayachoti YSR Circle to Pulivendula YSR Circle on the Outer Ring Road. Only one or two ventures have got permissions from the authorities concerned and the remaining are all illegal. Agriculture farms have been converted into house sites, and the owners of some ventures have not even converted their lands. As per the statutory guidelines, any real estate venture should provide space for roads, community buildings, parks and other amenities. All these ventures are violating the rules and not getting any permission from the Municipal authorities or Annamaiah Urban development Authority (ANUDA).
They are selling plots at a rate of Rs 4 to Rs 6 lakh per cent. When they convert their lands, the government departments such as Revenue, Municipal Corporation or Panchayath Raj will get lakhs as income. Owners of such ventures will have to pay 3 per cent of the land value for land conversion. But, all of them have not been paying the requisite amount. More than 10 such ventures begun at Ramachandraiah Colony, Viswanathapuram, Buggaletipalle and Venkatagaripalle, near the surroundings of RIMS.
Some of them have been allegedly encroaching government lands such as burial ground sites and vacant lands and merging it into their ventures. Five such ventures were allegedly formed in Survey numbers 64/2, 76/3, 76/2, 593, 595/3A in Chintakommadinne, without getting any permission. Corporation or Revenue officers have been not responding to these illegal ventures and encroachments.
While speaking to this correspondent, Chinthakommadinne tahsildar Maheswar Reddy said that the plots in some ventures have been already sold and transferred to two to three persons. Nobody has been responding to our notices. So, we are sending a letter to the Sub-Registrars not to register these plots in future, he said....
