Quthbullapur: The uncertainty over the ownership of government lands has come as a boon for encroachers.

The lands belonging to Telangana State Finance corporation are being encroached by the land sharks with every passing day. In fact, the lands were under AP State Finance Corporation in the erstwhile united state. But Telangana Sate Finance Corporation took over the lands after bifurcation in 2015. The AP state approached the High Court claiming its stake in the lands.

Locals allege that the Telangana State Finance Corporation is not very serious about protecting lands. Utilising this situation, the land sharks are encroaching the valuable lands.

Lands under survey number 307 belong to SFC and lands under survey number 329/1 also belong to the government. Locals and officials of SFC are surprised that a private guard has been appointed to protect these valuable lands. When the officials tried to arrange fencing around the land, they realised that some of the land is under encroachment.

Prabhakar Goud, an officer from APSFC, lamented that almost 72 acres belonging to the corporation have been missing. "We appointed a private security guard for the last 10 years. The case about the distribution of land is pending in the court. Meanwhile so many private ventures have come up in the land," he said.

A local leader allegedly constructed rooms in the land in survey number 329/1 at Devender Nagar. He was said to have sold the constructions in 60-80 square yards for Rs 10-15 lakh. Revenue officials under supervision of inspector Sudhakar demolished eight illegal constructions in the land eight months ago. But the incorrigible land shark constructed six more constructions in the same land after uprooting the government sign boards.

The local Tahsildar who pulled down illegal structures in Devender Nagar, Khaisar Nagar, Katta Maisamma basti and filed land grabbing cases against many people is surprisingly sparing the local leader, allege some people. When asked about the constructions re-built by the encroacher, the tahasildar clarified that the land in survey number 329/1 belongs to the government and the structures would be demolished soon.

Locals question why the officials of both revenue and SFC are so soft on the local leader. They expressed doubt about the nexus between the security guard and the encroacher and also negligent attitude of the local tahasildar.
