Hyderabad: The Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority (HMDA) has rejected 2,000 Building Regularisation Scheme (BRS) applications of a total of 35,000 applications it received. Recently, the High Court had directed the authorities not to issue any proceeding for building regularisation, but could process and reject the applications.
According to GO 152, dated November 2, 2015, the regularisation shall be applicable to existing buildings in the jurisdiction of all municipal corporations, municipalities, HMDA and urban development authorities in the state constructed between January 1, 1985 to October 28, 2015. If any owner fails to apply within the stipulated time, he shall be liable for enforcement action under the law and his building shall not be taken up for regularisation under these rules.
The GO also states that if it was found that the applicant has undertaken further additions or extensions to the existing building, then such application shall be rejected forfeiting the entire regularisation amount, and necessary action shall be taken against the unauthorised building including demolition as per law.
