The layouts were laid without clearance and thus were declared ‘unauthorised’. The plots in the 19,000 layouts spread over urban and rural areas were mired and as per the sources, over 1 lakh acres are involved in these layouts.
In Andhra Pradesh, the town and country planning department has put registrations of over 19,000 layouts on hold in the state. The layouts were laid without clearance and thus were declared ‘unauthorised’.
The state government had decided to allow registrations only after payment of regulatory fees and correction of prescribed rules.
The town and country planning department has recently circulated details of the layouts without clearance to the registrations and stamps department to hold the registrations in specific survey numbers.
The recently circular issued by commissioner of registrations and stamps with a directive to stop registrations in unauthorised layouts had sent currents in the state.
People who had bought the plots are under stress over the sudden halt of transactions. Subsequently, the state government clarified that registrations will be continued for the plots which were purchased before the cut-off date, January, 7, 2020.
