Govt Plans Townships On SEZ Lines

General | By mahendra | 2008 Trackbacks (0) Add comment   

The development of townships will be taken up only by private infrastructure companies and foreign firms across the state, especially around the twin cities. The municipal administration and urban development is working on a policy for townships named ‘The Andhra Pradesh Rules for Promotion and Development of Integrated Townships in Private Sector, 2008'. The townships will be promoted on the lines of special economic zones with the private initiatives and foreign investments. The Hyderabad Urban Development Authority (Huda) has already proposed 22 satellite townships along the Outer Ring Road (ORR). Of the 22, two townships at Tellapur and Sri Nagar along the ORR are being taken up by private developers. Initially, Huda proposed to develop satellite townships along the Outer Ring Road. But in the wake of crititicism over land acquisition by Huda, the municipal administration has decided to promote townships under the public private partnership (PPP) only.

The townships policy will usher in a systematic development rather than haphazard growth around the cities, an official said. The Centre announced its policy on townships in 2004, allowing 100 per cent foreign direct investment (FDI) in the real estate sector. "We are studying the townships policies in the states of Uttar Pradesh, Gujarat and Maharastra. A workshop will be conducted to take the opinions of experts and the states which are implementing the policy," the official said. The township rules will be applicable to all urban development authorities, municipal corporations, municipalities and their surrounding gram panchayats areas. The existing rules, regulations of local authorities and urban development authorities are not applicable in the townships.

The townships will be broadly divided into three categories. One category will be minimum 100 acres which will be allowed in Huda area, Visakhapatnam and other urban development authorities. In the second category the minimum area will be 75 acres. These will come up in Tirupathi, Warangal, special development authority areas. Townships with minimum 50 acres will be allowed in municipalities and surrounding areas. The township should be integration of residential, commercial, educational, amenity spaces, health facilities, places for parks, playgrounds and public utilities. "Our plan is to encourage townships the combination of which will be workplace, residential and entertainment. The area could be IT or bio-technology or anything," a senior official of the municipal administration said.

The developer has to provide infrastructure facilities like roads, water supply, drainage, garbage disposal, power, open spaces and other conditions which are mandatory as per the environmental rules. The draft will also list exemptions to be given by the government like waiver of 50 per cent of conversion charges, non-agriculture charges, development charges reduction and property tax. The municipal administration and urban development department made similar attempts to bring about a special policy for townships in 2006. It took the opinions from the then Municipal Corporation of Hyderabad, Huda, director of town and country planning (DTCP) and other town planning experts but could not go ahead as the officials were dealing with preparation of new building rules 2006.

Market Value Of Land To Rise

General | By mahendra | 2008 Trackbacks (0) Comments (2)   
The basic market value of land in the urban areas, including those falling in Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation limits, is likely to be increased by 8 to 10 per cent from August 1. With the real estate market gradually stabilising and revenue flow improving, the state government has decided to effect a low rate of increase.

Besides the GHMC limits, the revision of market value will take place in Visakhapatnam, Vijayawada and Guntur municipal corporation areas. Official sources said a final decision on the exact percentage of increase would be taken at a meeting which will be attended by the Chief Minister, Dr Y.S. Rajasekhar Reddy, on Wednesday. "The increase will not be more than 10 per cent in Hyderabad and its surroundings," a senior revenue department official said.

Sources said there would not be any revision of the value in the upmarket Gachibowli and Madhapur areas. The rates are likely to be retained in Banjara Hills and Jubilee Hills. The district stamps and registration officials have reportedly recommended an 8 per cent hike in areas like Narayanaguda, Himayatnagar, Srinagar and parts of Secunderabad.  Sources said the basic value for structures will not see any major change. The government had earlier revised the value from Rs 550 per sq ft to Rs 580 per sq ft.

Meanwhile, the revenues went up in the first quarter when compared to the corresponding period in the previous financial year. Against a target of Rs 1,313 crore for the first quarter, the department achieved Rs 1,003 crore which is 75 per cent. While Hyderabad achieved 72 per cent of the target, Hyderabad (south) 81 per cent, North 63 per cent, Ranga Reddy (east) 72 per cent and Ranga Reddy achieved 72 per cent of the target.............

BPS Closes, No More Extensions

General | By mahendra | 2008 Trackbacks (0) Comments (1)   

The building penalisation scheme, which was introduced six months ago will come to an end on Tuesday. The Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation has made elaborate arrangements to cope with the rush at all circles on the last day. It expects to generate more than Rs 800 crore with the scheme as over one lakh owners have already applied for the regularisation of their houses and flats in Hyderabad.

The corporation on Monday defended its move to serve notices to applicants of the old building regularisation scheme. Owners who regularised their houses in the 1998 under Building Regularisation Scheme were also asked to apply for BPS. This created an uproar among the owners, as they were being asked to pay twice.

"It might have happened in one or two cases. But it should not be blown out of its proportion. The errors are common when a big scheme is being implemented in the interest of the public," said Mr K. Dhanunjaya Reddy, additional commissioner (project and planning). Officials indicated that the scheme would not be extended further since the ample time had been given for the submission of applications under BPS.

They felt that further extension of the scheme will lead to more unauthorised constructions in the Hyderabad. The GHMC had already taken steps for the demolition of illegal structures which have come up recently. It said that it was up to builders to prove that they had constructed the flats before the BPS was introduced.

In a bid to ensure better compliance, the government has relaxed rules for the submission of applications under the scheme. Applicants can pay only 10 per cent of the fee upfront. They can pay the remaining amount within six months.

Applicants need not worry about submitting documents at the time of application. The government has given permission to submit the documents in in due course.  The government relaxed the rules ahead of determining July 15 as the final deadline for BPS.The civic body has already issued a list of phone numbers of officials to be contacted in case applicants face problems with the BPs. Municipal administration officials have also advised the heads of government institutions to apply for regularisation of government buildings. Government organisations should take initiative to apply. They are not insisting that they pay penalisation fee, GHMC officials said.

Growth Corridor On ORR Opens

General | By mahendra | 2008 Trackbacks (0) Add comment   

The government has finally opened the gates for "planned and regulated" development along the 162-km Outer Ring Road by announcing a comprehensive master plan (CMP) for the corridor. The notification was issued by the urban development department here on Wednesday.

The CMP covers a one-km belt on either side of the corridor with a set of special development regulations that are intended to "promote planned growth and curb haphazard and ribbon development." The CMP is expected to give fresh impetus to economic activities along the stretch, one-of-its-kind in the country. The government cleared the plan after two years.The government is planning to announce special incentives to encourage major projects that would cater to a larger population and also provide better infrastructure, sources in the MAUD said. Special incentives will be offered to large integrated townships and educational institutions that come up on an area of up to 400 acres.

A special committee will soon be constituted to look into the development issues related to the corridor. A special unit is also being created for dealing with applications for permission to develop and undertake building construction in the corridor, the sources added. "We are working on a separate policy on the planning standards and public-private partnership models along the corridor," sources said. The government feels the CMP would boost development along the corridor besides encouraging construction activities. "All the hype near the corridor has so far only been speculative. But with the ring road work in full steam, the entire stretch will become a popular destination for investment," a senior official added.

New Developments In Hyderabad

General | By mahendra | 2008 Trackbacks (0) Comments (4)   

The new developments, along with the IT parks and recreation department will make Hyderabad real estate the premiere suburb of India for years to come. Combined with a responsive city government with a A1 bond rating, nationally recognized emergency service which allow for lower homeowners insurance, conscientious and liberal use of public space as parks and excellent public education and you have all of the ingredients that make Hyderabad a great place to call home.

Real estate is really a game of supply and demand. The trick is finding the demand and being in the position to supply. This is the kind of situation investors and builders run up against all the time. It is a matter of assessing the market and trying to find the perfect area at the perfect time. One those variables are known then action can be taken, investments can be made and profits can be collected. So the question remains, where is a good area for this kind of action? Hyderabad comes to mind. Over the past number of years Hyderabad has been one of the hottest real estate markets in the country and this trend shows few signs of slowing down. There are a number of reasons that Hyderabad can make this boast and it would seem that there are going to be a few more boasts made over the coming months.

People love to go to Hyderabad, it is one of the most traveled to destinations in the country and it's not hard to see why. Fantastic weather, scenery, recreation and many other attributes can be claimed by this city. Real estate has been in high demand in this city for many years. This is partially due to Hyderabad's popularity as a retirement destination and it's notoriety as a destination resort location. In fact tourism is one of  the strongest aspects of hyderabad's economy pouring millions of dollars per year into this state.

Hyderabad has always been known as a great place to visit. However, with the abundance of education, the excellent economy and a great and stable real estate industry. Hopefully this has explained why there is such a demand for quality homes and properties in Hyderabad. Supply and demand does not work unless there is interest from both sides and Hyderabad is a perfect example of a balanced area where supply meets demand.For more information about Hyderabad Real Estate log on to
