With the concern of rise in unauthorized constructions in the city and the inefficient action of the Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation (GHMC) in dealing them, the AP High Court has ordered the Anti-Corruption Bureau (ACB) to find the illegal buildings in the city within a month. Information regarding the building rules, GOs, penalties, functions and duties of the officials and the details of the necessary actions to be taken against illegal structures have been collected by the ACB officials from the corporation.
Commercial buildings and buildings with G+5 floors are the main focus or target for the ACB. A random check for the G+3 structures of about 35,000 buildings also has been proposed. Generally, about 6,000 to 7,000 buildings would be given permission every year by the GHMC. 5,000 permissions of them would be for buildings with G+2 and above. However, no mortgage rule for small buildings has become advantageous for many people. Permissions had been taken by many people for G+2 structures from the corporation, which were later converted to apartments. Details of such buildings and even other illegal structures are likely to come out with the ACB investigation.
