Telangana has been witnessing a surge in unauthorized layouts, raising concerns over the sale and purchase of properties. The state government has been taking measures to curb this trend, but the issue persists.
Unauthorized layouts are residential or commercial plots that are developed without obtaining the necessary approvals from the authorities. These layouts are often developed on agricultural land or government-owned land, and the developers do not follow the rules and regulations set by the government.
The sale and purchase of properties in unauthorized layouts can be risky for buyers, as there is no guarantee that the property is legal. Such properties do not have clear titles, and the buyers may face legal issues in the future. Moreover, these layouts often lack basic amenities such as water supply, sewage systems, and proper roads.
The Telangana government has been taking steps to address this issue. In 2015, the government launched the Telangana Regularisation of Unapproved and Illegal Layout Rules, which aimed to regularize unauthorized layouts that were developed before August 2015. The government also set up a special task force to identify and demolish illegal structures.
However, despite these efforts, unauthorized layouts continue to mushroom in the state. Developers often lure buyers with lower prices and promise quick possession of properties. Buyers, in turn, are attracted by the affordability of these properties.
To address this issue, it is crucial for buyers to do their due diligence before purchasing any property. They should check if the layout has been approved by the authorities and if the necessary approvals and clearances have been obtained. It is also advisable to consult a lawyer before making any purchase.
The Telangana government has also been taking steps to create awareness among buyers about the risks associated with unauthorized layouts. It has launched campaigns to educate buyers about the importance of buying properties only from authorized layouts.
In conclusion, unauthorized layouts in Telangana are a cause for concern. The sale and purchase of properties in such layouts can be risky for buyers, as there is no guarantee that the property is legal. The government has been taking measures to address this issue, but it is also essential for buyers to do their due diligence before making any purchase.
