AP High Court Reserves Order On Amaravati Land Allocation:- The Andhra Pradesh High Court slammed the government of Andhra Pradesh and reserved the orders for allocating the house sites to the poor from the capital region, Amaravati. Several petitions have been filed that the allocation of house sites from the villages near Vijayawada, Tadepalli, Mangalagiri and others is illegal and is a violation of the Capital Region Development Authority (CRDA) Act. The government of Andhra Pradesh argued that the lands are given to the landless poor and there is nothing wrong with it.
Former Advocate General, Dammalapati Srinivas argued that 5% of the land acquired can be used for future use as most of the land is acquired through the Land Pooling Scheme (LPS). He said that the government of Andhra Pradesh is trying hard to allocate the lands to the poor which is against the CRDA Act. AP Chief Minister YS Jaganmohan Reddy has been in plans to give house pattas for the poor on March 25th on Telugu New Year.
The High Court opposed the decision and warned that they would ask the Centre to intervene in the issue if needed. As of now, the allocation of house sites in Amaravati is kept on hold. AP Government as of now kept the plans of allocation of house sites.
