Over 200 villas constructed illegally at Mallampet; MAUD CS orders immediate demolition

Hyderabad: Over 200 villas were constructed illegally at Mallampet village under Dundigal municipality in Medchal-Malkajgiri district.

Municipal Administration and Urban Development (MAUD) Chief Secretary Arvind Kumar on Friday directed the all Municipal commissioners of all Municipalities comes under Hyderabad Metro Development Authority (HMDA) limits to take immediate action to demolish unauthorized constructions.

In a memo issued to all Municipal Commissioners in Rangareddy, Medchal Malkajgiri, Sanga Reddy, Yadadri Bhuvanagiri and Siddipet, Arvind Kumar said it has come to the notice of the government that a number of unauthorized constructions including apartments, gated communities, and layouts are coming up in their jurisdiction without obtaining any valid permission from HMDA.

In fact, in some cases, constructions are going on by quoting the erstwhile Gram Panchayat (GP) permissions which are not valid anymore. GPs were authorized by HMDA to grant individual residential building permissions up to Ground plus 2 floors only. They were never not authorized and competent to issue permissions for apartments, gated communities, and layouts, the Chief Secretary said.

He directed all Municipal Commissioners to inspect all ongoing constructions and verify whether they have valid permissions or not. He said if it is an unauthorized construction, immediate action should be taken as per the provisions of the Telangana Municipalities Act 2019 and the TSbPASS Act. He said action taken report on this issue should be submitted to the government by Dec 30, 2021.

He said instructions should be followed scrupulously and any negligence in this regard will be viewed seriously and the concerned Municipal Commissioner will be personally held responsible for any lapses in this matter.

He said the Municipal Administration director should ensure that the instructions are followed by all Commissioners and an action taken report is submitted to the government by December end.
