Demolition of Illegal Building Constructions in Visakhapatnam

Visakhapatnam district administration officials undertook a demolition drive in various parts of the city, removing several illegal constructions. The clearance of unauthorized arrangements was initiated simultaneously in multiple zones by the sub-collector of Paderu Dr. S Venkateswar, with the workers pulling down the structures that were erected in violation of the building plan. 

There were allegedly demolitions of 45 illegal buildings in Chintapalli and other illegal structures that were being identified for violating norms. In addition to the demands of local people and tribal leaders, the action has been taken. 

Tribal leaders argue that since these spaces were tourist hotspots, people from the plains came and settled in agency areas to start their businesses and have built illegal constructions without following any building permissions norms. A lot of such developments were to be identified in areas like Araku, Paderu, Tajangi, Peddabayalu, Hukumpeta, Lotugeddajunction, Borra Junction, and Chintapalli.

Proper Authorisation Required for Transfer of Tribal Lands

ITDA project manager of Paderu, D.K. Balaji, confirmed that the drive was on a demolition drive in the city for the past few days. He said the illegal constructions are currently being identified. At the same time, many of these contradict the land transfer regulations 1 of 70 Act, which sets forth that land transfer from tribals to the non-tribals can not be carried out without the prior approval of the government of the state.

He also added that the tribal leaders protested that many non-tribal organizations are building shops illegally because of the opportunities for business. Reports in the Revenue Department also suggested the discovery of all buildings considered to be in breach of Agency rules.

Visakhapatnam Outskirts Witness Avalanche of Constructions

The plan to build executive capital in the peripheries of Visakhapatnam has led to a real estate boom in Vizianagaram and Bhogapuram, far beyond GVMC limits. The real estate boom is more significant than in the vicinity of Visakhapatnam in these regions. Plots for sale in Vizianagaram and Bhogapuram areas outside Visakhapatnam are not only more accessible but are also much closer to the area designated for the development of the executive capital. 

Since real estate booms will inevitably take place in these places, colonies are developed on a shock-a-block within GVMC boundaries, with most developments being apartment units. But there are numerous large, yet affordable private housing projects beyond Tagarapuvalasa, towards Bhogapuram and Vizianagaram. 

The land for sale in Bhogapuram has gone up from Rs 10,000 to Rs 15,000 per square yard. Nonetheless, in the direction of Vizianagaram, the leap is speculated to be 100% from close Rs 10,000 to Rs 20,000. That is why many consider it to be a better option to invest in a plot than an apartment.

With many positive speculations rising on Visakhapatnam as the executive capital, the lands for sale in the city have been keenly observed by many well-reputed builders to launch residential and commercial spaces. While Vizag real estate is also expected to be eyeing by many land grabbers for illegal constructions, preventive measures are being taken by the government to cut it at the roots before it escalates.
