Last Date for LRS has been extended

The date for the disposal of pending applications under the BPS and LRS schemes have been extended to march 31st by the municipal administration and urban development department of the state government. A circular has been passed on Monday on the stating the extended deadline to the Visakhapatnam Urban Development Authority.

The Land Regularisation Scheme was made in-order to regularise the unauthorised plots and layouts under VUDA limits which received about 20,400 applications before closure of the scheme in 2015. Vuda officials have regulated 9,211 applications and rejected 6,242 before the end of deadline of processing in the first half of 2017.

For regularising the remaining 4948 applications government has extended deadline three times by persuasion from VUDA. Through an LRS mela held on December 19, the Vuda officials have handed over the regularisation certificates to 114 applicants.

However, the increased penalisation charges, which are collected as per the prevailing market value of land based on sub-registrar records, is said to be the prime reason for the poor response for the LRS scheme.

The land value increased manifold since 2015 in several areas under Vuda jurisdiction. Vuda had sent out reminder letters and called the applicants personally to submit the necessary documents and pay the penalisation charges. And hence the last date has been extended again.
Vuda chief urban planner V Bhavani Shankar said they processed about 886 applications as of December 31, which was originally the last date of processing pending applications."We requested the government to extend the deadline again. We hope we can take the number of processed applications to more than 1,000 by March 2018 as some applications are kept pending due to CRZ norms and controversy over land ownership," said Bhavani Shankar.
