28 property owners get notices

HYDERABAD: The cantonment authorities have served notices on 28 property owners in Langar Hauz after revenue officials discovered that their properties stand on defence land.

A few months ago, cantonment officials had approached the district administration with a request to identify defence lands in the city. The mandal revenue authorities in Golconda had identified a 1.3 acre land in survey number 58 which was acquired by defence authorities four decades ago but is home to several private residential properties today. The cantonment authorities sent notices last Friday to property owners seeking explanation as to why they should not be evicted.

According to Golconda tehsildar R S Chandravathi, the land was acquired by the military for construction of a septic tank. The owner of the land had sought urban ceiling exemption from the government on the pretext that he had entered into an agreement with the cantonment authorities. But when the entire land given to the defence authorities was not used, the owner discreetly sold away parcels of the land to private parties.

One of the property owners, said they were completely caught unawares about the status of the land. "We purchased the land in the mid-nineties by following all legal procedures. The government laid roads and allowed construction of houses here. We were not approached by any official to inform us that it is military area. We suspect that the records pertaining to this survey number are not in order," he said.

However, mandal revenue officials said the town survey records clearly show that it is defence land. "As the defence establishment did not fence the land after building the septic tank or put it to any use, the original owner of the land was able to sell it away to the present owners,"
