KT Rama Rao (KTR), Telangana's Municipal Administration Minister, guaranteed ownership rights to individuals without fees.
He said the government committed itself to grant ownership rights without fees to all eligible low and middle-class economies in the State. The government has already opened the Dharani Land Portal in the context of this project, KTR said, following the opening of the Jawaharnagar's waste-to-energy plant on Tuesday.
The minister stated, citing the example of 15 to 16 colonies in Uppal, that the residents of these colonies were granted ownership and guaranteed 40,000 residents of Jawaharnagar and the neighbouring patta areas. "The residents can use loans for business, educational needs, and so on with this (ownership rights). More than 70 per cent of people across the state own pattas and residents will be given pattas in a few areas like Jawaharnagar, "said the minister.
He laid the foundations for a 28 MW waste-to-energy plant and said it would work within 18 months. "Dundigul would house another waste-to-energy (15 MW) plant that is sufficient to waste disposal for the next 10 years," KTR added that the plant at Jawaharnagar is South India's first waste energy plant.
