Warangal: Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao was according great importance to the development of Warangal city on the lines of the State capital, said Deputy Chief Minister K Srihari. He participated in a programme organised to distribute title deeds to about 86 residents of GWMC’s 38th division at Srinivas Nagar Colony in Hanamkonda on Wednesday under land regularisation scheme.
Addressing the gathering, he said that the distribution of title deeds to the residents was a visible proof of the benefits that a separate Telangana State could offer to the people. Though the residents bought the land and built homes 50 years ago, they could have the title of the property as previous government neglected public’s demand to regularise the land.
A nominal fee of Rs 50 per square yard was collected for regularising the land, the Deputy Chief Minister said and directed the local revenue officials to register the lands immediately. Speaking on the occasion, Warangal Mayor N Narender said that the State government was striving to develop the city as ‘slum-free city.’
As part of its commitment, the government has additionally sanctioned 15,000 double-bed room houses in the city this year, he added.
MLA D Vinay Bhasker said that the regularisation of lands has become possible due to the support and encouragement extended by Deputy Chief Minister Srihari and Chief Minister Chandrashekar Rao.
