Floated with the reaction to the land pooling plan actualized at Uppal Bhagat close Nagole, the Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority (HMDA) has chosen to execute Land Pooling Schemes (LPS) at more places in the metropolitan district. The authority has chosen to take up the plan in Malkaram in Choutuppal Mandal of Yadadri-Bhongir area, Bhogaram town in Ghatkesar Mandal of Medchal-Malkajgiri region and Lemuru town in Kandukur town of Ranga Reddy region

On the pilot premise, the plan will be taken up in three towns, where ranchers have approached willfully. It will be taken up on a significant scale in later stages,” Sista Vishwanath, heading the land pooling wing of HMDA told TOI on February 10.

Under the LPS, if ranchers approach to give their territory to the HMDA, it builds up the land according to the standards and gives them the created plots relying upon their property. It turned into a colossal accomplishment at Uppal Bhagat where the authority likewise got about Rs 1,000 crore in land barters led in two stages.

Authorities said it would be a success win circumstance for both the ranchers and authority. While the advancement gives created land (least 30% of their property) to the landowners back, it gets some income by method for its offer (counting improvement cost). Landowners get great incentives for a lot of the land.

Official sources said ranchers of Malkaram have communicated their availability to hand more than 160 sections of land — 100 sections of land in Bhogaram and 60 sections of land in Lemuru town. While Lemuria town is near the proposed Pharma City at Mucherla in the Rangareddy area, Malakaram is near Apparel park and Vijayawada thruway. Bhogarama is close to IT passageway on Warangal Highway.

HMDA has given a GO and rules on LPS in December 2017 where the base degree of the land ought to be at least 50 sections of land to actualizing the plan. A warning was given by HMDA in November 2019 for the plan at Pratap Singaram and Mokila towns. It has declared review numbers in both the plans and directed partner interview gatherings.

The authority is sitting tight for the reaction from the ranchers. The administration says if more ranchers approach and HMDA creates it, it can capture the aimless development of the city.
