Hyderabad: The High Court at Hyderabad on Wednesday posed a question to Telangana state government whether it will withdraw GO 152 or not. The GO gives power to the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) to regularise unauthorised construction in GHMC area under the Building Regularisation Scheme (BRS).

A division bench comprising Acting Chief Justice Dilip B Bhosale and Justice P Naveen Rao asked the counsel appearing for the Telangana government to find out from the government about this and inform by Thursday. The bench was dealing with a petition by the Forum for Good Governance, represented by M Padmanabha Reddy, challenging GO Ms No 146 issued on October 31, 2015 amending Section 455 – AA of the GHMC Act, 1955 and GO Ms No 152 on November 2, 2015 to regularise illegal constructions in the GHMC limits.

The division bench made it clear to Mahender Reddy, special counsel appearing for Advocate-General of Telangana State, that it would declare the GO as illegal if the government does not intend to withdraw it. It said that as the government rescinded the GO MS No. 146 which intended to amend the Section 455- A of the GHMC Act and superseded it with an Ordinance, similarly this GO has to be withdrawn by the government. It adjourned the matter to Thursday.
