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.............
