Orders to clear pending BPS applications

Special Correspondent

HYDERABAD: The Government has issued orders directing all municipal corporations, municipalities and urban development authorities in the State to issue Building Penalisation Scheme (BPS) proceedings to all pending cases where total penal amounts were paid within the deadline of Dec.31, 2010 but had fulfilled other conditions later.

Conditions

Other conditions include submitting fire clearance certificates and layout regularisation scheme clearance certificate after the deadline. In the city alone, GHMC had kept little more than 7,000 applicants waiting for the last six months without clearing them since the Government did not want any application cleared if relevant papers are submitted after the cut off date.

Penal payments

The municipal corporation had received penal payments for more than 15,000 applications on the last few days of December 2010 and the staff did not have sufficient time to sift through all of them to issue clearance certificates.

Senior officials agree that there are as many as 6,264 applications which have been kept aside only due to this reason making owners of the properties run around for clearances.

Delayed submission

Among the other pending applications, 755 belonged to delayed submission of LRS certificates, 14 for delayed fire clearances obtained and 18 for delaying in submission papers indicating removal of parking space violations. More than 1,000 these BPS applications have been pending approval in the three circles of L.B.Nagar, Malkajgiri and Kukatpally, alone.

Earlier, this month the Commissioner has sought Government's direction to clear these applications since they were eligible for issuing proceedings in all respects save for time lag in fulfilling other formalities before Dec.31, 2010. Now, Principal Secretary of Municipal Administration Department B. Sam Bob had issued orders permitting the commissioners of municipal bodies and vice-chairpersons of UDAs to issue proceedings to these applications.

At the same time, he also made it clear that no new BPS applications or fresh processing of applications should be done. The Director of Town and Country Planning was requested to furnish consolidated status reports of the pending and disposal of BPS applications to the Government periodically.
