ENCROACHMENT OF GOVT LAND
Hyderabad: Chief Minister K Chandrasekhar Rao on Tuesday night said that there was no need for a CBI probe with regard to the encroachment of lands at Miyapur and other places.
In a statement, the Chief Minister said that neither a single acre of government land was occupied illegally by anyone nor the government has lost revenue in the alleged illegal registration of lands.
The Chief Minister instructed the authorities to approach Supreme Court directly on the ownership
of lands which were in litigation.
Several cases were pending in the apex court on the ownership of jagir lands as the encroachers have created fake documents on the particular lands and claimed ownership, he said.
KCR held a high-level review meeting at Pragathi Bhavan on the alleged land scams unearthed in Miyapur, Samshabad, Balanagar and Ibrahimpatnam. He said 810 acres of government land which was allegedly occupied by private persons has not been registered under transfer of land.
The accused had registered the lands for litigation rights only. The lands were registered under movable property and not as immovable property and the government was still holding ownership of the lands.
The government did not lose the rights on the lands. The registration of government lands by private people was null and void as the properties were not transferred in their names.
Instructing the officials to submit a detailed report on the illegal registration of government lands, the Chief Minister said that since the jagir lands were already cancelled the government was the sole owner of such lands in the state.
As many loopholes have come to light in the registration process, KCR instructed the officials to prepare a fool-proof mechanism to curb the illegal occupation of government lands.
Deputy Chief Minister and Revenue Minister Mohd Mahmood Ali, Special Chief Secretary to Revenue BR Meena and officials of Registration department were present in the meeting.
