Recent incident of the rival dispute between the Chandrayangutta MLA Akbaruddin Owaisi and the members of Pehelwan’s family reminds the rise of property crimes in the city. Certain realty developers, explaining the reasons for the land grabbing crimes in the city, say that the rise in prices of the land across the twin cities since last one decade and the entry of number of unwarranted investors in the market made the situation worse.
With many parties trying to grab the land after the end of the Nizam’s era and the lack of the government effort in demarcating the ULC (Urban Land Ceiling) land from the privately-owned land there is much more land mafia going on in the city. From certain rough market estimates it is found that about 60% of the Hyderabad’s land has certain litigation cases due to lack of a clear title. There are also some legal issues even with the land auctioned by the government. It has become necessary for the respective authorities of the government to consider the land reforms to deal the land mafia.
