On Tuesday, KTR announced that the Government of Telangana is committed to grant pattas and property rights to all deserving groups of low and middle income that have built houses on Government and territories across the State, as demanded without a fee.
The State had 2.77 crore acres of land, including 1.55 crore acres of agricultural land, 66 lakh acres of forests, rivers, and gram kantas, while states, towns, and cities in the rest of the country were noted. Nearly 70% of citizens across the State-owned pattas and ownership rights, while residents were yet to obtain pattas in few areas such as Jawaharnagar and others, he added.
In some areas, the Government has already given pattas to citizens building with government land structures through GOs 58 and 59, Sada Bainama, and notary. A few days back, residents of 15 to 16 colonies in Uppal had received property rights with a particular order, KTR said. He also added that the Government's goal was to help citizens acquire ownership rights without any irregularities or inconveniences through the recently-inaugurated Dharani portal.
"The Government of Telangana is obliged, if possible without collection of any fees, to grant proprietary rights to all eligible citizens in the State.
The Minister promised pattas would be given to all citizens about ownership of more than 40000 residents of Jawaharnagar and the neighboring areas. On Tuesday, after opening a 19.8 MW waste-to-energy plant at Jawaharnagar, Rao said, "a particular program will now take hold, and Chief Minister K Chandrashekhar Rao will provide pattas to all eligible families. The said plant is currently South India's largest waste-to-energy plant and is operating on modern technology.
The Minister has also initiated the foundation for another 28 MW of Phase II plant. In about 18 months, the plant is scheduled to start generating power. The Minister said that the State government built waste-to-energy plants to tackle bad smell and solid waste management problems. The proposed 28 MW plant at Jawaharnagar would help to produce about 3,200 metric tonnes of solid waste per day in addition to electrical power generation, apart from the current 19.8 MW plant. Apart from this, he also quoted, a 15 MW waste-to-energy plant was about to launch at Dundigul.
The state government has established two places in Lakdaram and Pyarenagar as a long-term initiative to decentralize Hyderabad's waste management that is far from human habitations.
