Telangana state government has once again extended the deadline for submission of applications under Land Regularisation Scheme (LRS) up to October 31st, 2020.
The move came following the scheduled expiry of the last date of submission of applications for LRS scheme today. The Government has issued the ‘Telangana Regularization of Unapproved and Illegal Layout Rules 2020’ on August 31st introducing a Layout Regularization Scheme (LRS) in order to bring unplanned/unapproved/unauthorized layouts into the fold of planned, sustainable development and to provide basic facilities in these areas.
Under the above rules, applications for regularization of plots/layouts are required to be filed either online or at Mee Seva centres. More than 19.33 lakh applications have been received till date including 2.58 received by 9.00 PM today.
However, representations have been received by the government that due to recent heavy rains, there have disruptions in internet services and power supply at several locations due to which many people have not been able to file their applications. Consequently, there are requests to extend the last date for filing applications.
