Government of Telangana has come out with a much-need relief for the property owners to regularize houses, non-agricultural lands, and notary properties in urban areas.
Naveen Mittal, the Revenue Department’s Principal Secretary, has issued orders, clarifying the guidelines for the regularization procedure and advising the public to submit the applications through MeeSeva centres.
According to the orders, applicants must produce link documents as well as notary papers, property tax receipts, power bills, water bills, or any other proof of property ownership. Afterward, the district collector will carefully review these applications before making a decision.
Properties built on government land shall be treated in accordance with the Rules of GOs 58 and 59, which control the regularization of the structures on government land. Properties that do not intrude on government land will be processed directly.
The properties within 125 yards of each other will be exempt from stamp duty. However, properties bigger than this space would be liable to stamp duty depending on market value, as well as a Rs 5 fine. While the instructions clarify the requirements, there is no mention of a fixed date for application submission.
