Won't Stop Auction Of Government Lands: High Court

The Telangana High Court today declined to stay the auction of government lands in the Kokapet and Khanamet areas of Hyderabad.
Hyderabad | 14th July 2021
The Telangana High Court today declined to stay the auction of government lands in the Kokapet and Khanamet areas of Hyderabad.

The decision comes after BJP leader Vijayashanti filed a petition on the matter.

She was displeased by the fact that the state government was reportedly making arrangements to auction off 44.94 acres of land in Kokapet and 14.92 acres of land in Khanamet on Thursday (July 15).

In her petition on the issue, the leader had urged the HC to stay GO 13, which called for the auction of the lands.

Arguing on behalf of the state government, advocate general B S Prasad told the court that the lands were being auctioned off in order to prevent encroachment and to mobilise much-needed developmental funds for the state.

Reports say that the KCR regime, which has asserted that it urgently needs to sell "unused" government lands for funds, is expecting to earn around Rs 2,500 crore through the sale of the lands in Kokapet alone. It is being said that the government will likely get Rs 45 crore to Rs 50 crore for every acre of land in the area.

The decision to sell the lands has left many angered. Last month, Congress leader Shabbir Ali too had lambasted the government for proposing to auction off government lands.

He had strongly condemned the TRS government for the controversial proposal to sell off the lands to raise Rs 20,000 crore saying, "The sale of government lands will have a negative impact on the overall developmental process in the future. No land will be available for the construction of educational institutions, hospitals or any other public infrastructure facilities if government properties are sold off like this."
