HYDERABAD: Nearly six years after their land was acquired, affected property owners of Uppal Bhagat will get developed plots soon. The Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority (HMDA) has decided to allot plots on lottery basis in a couple of weeks.

Though the municipal administration and urban development (MA&UD) department had issued a GO on the package for affected property owners in January, 2011, the allotment got delayed as the authority was in a dilemma over distribution of developed plots to land losers.

The authority had acquired 733 acres from farmers of Uppal Bhagat for the Musi beautification project and metro rail project. While 104 acres have been allotted to Hyderabad metro rail, 150 acres were given to Hyderabad Metropolitan Water Supply and Sewerage Board (HMWS&SB) for constructing of sewage treatment plant (STP). Both the departments had agreed to pay Rs 25 lakh per acre for development of layout for the land allotted to the victims.

So far, 624 land owners have given consent and entered into an agreement with the HMDA to take developed plots. Some owners have not been listed for land compensation as there were issues like multiple claims over land or no claimants.

As per the agreement, the land losers would get 1,000 square yard developed plot for every acre of land that was acquired. The plots in the 413-acre layout have been divided into 150, 200, 300,500 and 1,000 sq yards for allotment to the land owners. However, the problem is some farmers had lost less than an acre like a few guntas. As a result, some are eligible for different sizes like 325, 615 square yards, which cannot be allotted in sizes of plots that were developed.

Then, the authority floated an option to the property owners either to buy additional land or sell it to the other plot owners adjacent to them. For instance, a land owner is eligible for 625 sq yards, he has to either sell or buy 25 sq yards as per the government market value.

Many property owners were willing to buy additional land due to the developed plot's proximity to metro rail depot at Nagole. The HMDA wants to sort some issues during finalization of allotment.

Meanwhile, plot owners have come up with fresh demands like making developed plot area as multiple land use zone, setback relaxation for construction of buildings and also property tax waiver for certain period.

"HMDA will allot plots as per the GO issued by the MA&UD department. Exemption and other reliefs are under the purview of GHMC since the area falls under the municipal corporation. The property owners' demands will be forwarded to the corporation," HMDA land acquisition officer S Sangeetha Sathyanarayana told TOI.
