Families living on SCCL lands to get pattas
ADILABAD: Families seeking regularisation of their houses built on lands belonging to Singareni Collieries in Bellampalli and Mancherial assembly constituencies will get pattas at a public meeting to be addressed in Bellampalli by IT minister K.T. Rama Rao on May 8.
Many families, whose members worked in SCCL or had retired or whose children are now working in SCCL, had constructed houses on Singareni lands. They have been demanding regularisation of their house sites and buildings for the last 10 years.
They had applied for pattas under GO No: 58, 59 and 76 issued recently by the state government. It is expected that pattas and certificates will be given to 10,000 families living in Bellampalli town area. Nearly 7,000 beneficiaries will get pattas under GO 76 and to 3,000 beneficiaries under GO 58 and 59.
It is stated 3,300 beneficiaries are from Srirampur and Naspur areas of Mancherial assembly constituency.
While giving away the pattas, the IT minister will also lay the foundation stone for a food processing unit being set up over 350 acres in the Bellampalli assembly constituency.
Both these events have come in handy for sitting MLA Durgam Chinnaiah, who has been involved in a series of controversies, to create a positive image for himself in the run up to the elections.
