The Telangana Government recently decided to extend the deadline of the Land Regularisation Scheme (LSR) in the State.
The recent development would benefit people who are going to regularise their lands.
As of now, the 15th of October is the last date for the LSR in Telangana.
The deadline which is likely to be extended by a month would help people, unable to submit their documents by the 15th of October.
According to sources, the Municipal Administration and Urban Development Department submitted their report proposing an extension in the deadline.
A Telangana Government official, who wished to be anonymous said, “While the initial response for LRS was not great, it picked up pace in later weeks and the number of applications sky-rocketed after the Chief Minister announced that regularisation fee will be collected based on the registration value of the unauthorised plots at the time of registration. The total number of applications have crossed the 10 lakh mark and if extended, can easily touch 15 lakhs. Hence, the proposal has been submitted to the Chief Minister for final approval.”
As on Saturday, the State Government received about 11.57 lakh applications including 4.66 lakh applications each from both gram panchayats and municipalities.
In addition, 2.24 applications were received in municipal corporations including the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC.)
According to sources, through these applications, the State Government earned nearly Rs. 118 crores, Through application fee alone, the State government has earned nearly Rs 118 crore and the officials are expecting the scheme to be beneficial to both the public as well as the State coffers.
The State Government announced the LRS in September and the applicants have to pay all the prescribed charges before January 31, 2021.
However, an extension in the submission of documents for LSR is yet to be announced.
K. Chandrasekhar Rao, the Chief Minister of Telangana, would make an official announcement regarding the LSR deadline extension during the Special Assembly Session
The special two day Assembly Session of Telangana is scheduled to be held on the 13th and the 14th of October.
