Hyderabad: The Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority (HMDA) will take up land pooling in the growth corridor of Outer Ring Road (ORR) to develop “Transit Oriented Growth Centres.” Land pooling involves securing private lands by pooling several small plots, reorganising and redistribution.

Land pooling at ORR will be taken up for a fair distribution of benefits to the landowners.The land pooling, the officials hope, will enable them to take up the development works with the revenue derived from the projects. HMDA Commissioner T Chiranjeevulu said State government would soon formulate a comprehensive land pooling policy.

Under the scheme the land pooling would be taken up in a phased manner. Under the scheme, minimum land to the extent of 50 acres should be pooled. Consent from two thirds of landowners is to be taken for acquiring the land.

The HMDA Commissioner promised to ensure that the HMDA allots developed plots to the landowners. He said in case of delay, interest at the rate of 9 per cent would be paid to the landowners. He said the development includedlaying roads, building sanitation, sewerage treatment plants and providing water in three years.

“We want to “Transit Oriented Growth Centres” all along the Outer Ring Road. This land pooling scheme is taken in the states like Maharashtra, Pune, Gujarat, Andhra Pradesh, Delhi, Haryana and Punjab. Land pooling will be helpful in implementing master plan, execution of specific project, and development of city level infrastructures and development of new residential areas. Land pooling is a method for securing private lands by pooling several small plots, reorganising and redistribution,” Chiranjeevulu said.
