Hyderabad: Andhra Pradesh Cabinet on Monday cleared the proposal of introducing Building Penalisation Scheme (BPS) to regularise the constructions which deviated from the approved layouts across the State. This, the government feels, will help the cash-strapped State improve its financial situation and secondly it would also promote planned development of urban areas.

Stating this at a media conference after the Cabinet meeting, Minister Palle Raghunatha Reddy said the norms of the Building Penalisation Scheme (BPS) would be soon announced. This scheme however will not be applicable to the areas which come under the jurisdiction of the Capital Region Development Authority (CRDA) in between Vijayawada and Guntur. It is also not applicable to those illegal structures constructed right in government lands and on riverbeds which means that the guest house constructed by BJP leader Gokaraju Gangaraju cannot escape demolition.

The Minister said that in AP about 40,000-odd applications had been pending with various municipalities across the State to avail the BPS. Meanwhile, the government in order to collect maximum revenue, decided to encourage people to pay the pending dues of the property tax by March 31 by offering them reduction on the interest rates on outstanding dues.
