VUDA move to regularise layouts

By Our Special Correspondent

VISAKHAPATNAM, JAN. 2. The Visakhapatnam Urban Development Authority (VUDA) has given two-months time to regularise the nearly 250 unauthorised layouts in its jurisdiction and if there was no proper response from the realtors, it would itself initiate the process of regularisation involving the allottees.

Informing this to reporters at a get-together here on Sunday, the new Vice-Chairman of VUDA, D. Varaprasad, said that if about 50 to 60 per cent of the allottees came forward, the VUDA would take up the task of regularising the layouts. Meanwhile, the process of regularisation had been made simple and the plot owners or realtors simply had to file applications at the eSeva centres.

Master plan ready

"They need not even come to VUDA office and the regularisation would be done as per rules. Once it is done, we are immediately announcing it through the press," he explained.

On the development of the 1,700 sq. km. Visakhapatnam Metropolitan Region (VMR) under the VUDA, he said that the master plan was ready and the GO was expected for its implementation.

Change of land use would not be possible once the GO is out as the master plan would be implemented strictly, he stated.

There was need to develop satellite townships in Madhurawada and other places in the peripheral area, he felt, adding that at present they witnessed only real estate business.

Mr. Varaprasad also said that the VUDA planned development of Simhachalam temple with about Rs. 20 crores to 25 crores. The Kailasagiri and beach road would also be developed to attract tourists. The engineering department of VUDA would be kept busy with works up to Rs. 30 crores or Rs. 40 crores in the process, he said.

Replying to questions, the VUDA Vice-Chairman admitted that there was need to develop infrastructural facilities in the residential colonies on the outskirts. The VUDA itself proposed to take up housing projects in the area, he disclosed.
