HYDERABAD: After a decade-long fight with the government, families of former soldiers in the erstwhile Nizam army are set to realize their dream, owning quarters in which they had been staying for decades. In fact, 120 occupants have received title deeds last week.
The Hyderabad district administration had set the process of regularization (transfer of rights of government land) of Nizam's ex-servicemen quarters (nearly 700) located at five prime areas — Banjara Darwaja (Old stables, Golconda Fort), Band Lines (Fateh Maidan, Nampally), Mohammadi Lines (2nd Lancer, Shaikpet), Masab Lines (Asifnagar) and Saifabad Lines (AC Guards, Asifnagar) — in the city in 2008. Before the Hyderabad state was merged with the Indian Union, the then administration had allotted these quarters to soldiers in the Nizam army.
The Hyderabad district administration had served notices to the occupants to submit the documentary evidence. Responding to the notices, 527 applications were received from 497 occupants. The authorities then verified the applications based on rental slips, voter ID cards and other documents submitted by the occupants and approved 486 applications for regularization.
"We have taken into consideration various issues, including the GO Ms No 166 dated 16/02/2008, which stated that white ration cards holders have to pay 0.25 paise per square yard and pink card holders Re one per sq yard, market value fixed on 31/12/2003, depreciation at three per cent (20 years between 1983-2002), 60% rent for 1983, 25% surcharge for prime land and an advance of Rs 20,000, which we have already collected. Calculating all these, we have prepared the memos to get the final amount to be paid by the occupant/applicant," sources in the Hyderabad collectorate said.
The occupant is required to pay anywhere between Rs 60,000 and Rs 10 lakh depending on the area of the quarter. "The market value has been fixed depending on the locality. Once, he or she pays the amount, the title deed will be released through member convenor, district-level regularization panel, Hyderabad district. The applicants, who have received the memo, have to pay the final amount in four installments and remit it in SBH, Gunfoundry branch," he said. "So far, we have issued title deeds to 120 occupants. In case, the occupants fail to pay within four months, they will be referred to the CCLA," the official added.
However, the occupants, who have to pay below Rs 2 lakhs were coming forward to remit the money and take the title deeds, but those who have to pay between Rs 4 lakh and Rs 10 lakh were not responding quickly," the official.
A few occupants, who received their title deeds, stated that their dream of owning a house in Hyderabad has finally come true.
