TELANGANA REGULARISATION OF
UNAUTHORIZEDLY CONSTRUCTED BUILDINGS
AND BUILDINGS CONSTRUCTED IN DEVIATION OF
THE SANCTIONED PLAN RULES-2015

1. GUIDELINES FOR REGULATION OF UNAUTHORISEDLY CONSTRUCTED BUILDINGS


AND BUILDINGS CONSTRUCTED IN DEVIATION TO THE SANCTIONED PLAN IN
MUNICIPAL AND URBAN DEVELOPMENT AUTHORITY AREAS

1. Introduction:
Telangana State has experienced rapid growth of urbanization and the population of Hyderabad has increased to 70 lakhs
as per census 2011. Telangana State has been making rapid strides in economic development in the recent past.
Consequently the migration to urban areas from villages has increased manifold. There is a great spurt in construction
activity to meet the increased demand for buildings due to general economic development and migration from rural areas.
In this process of development, it is noticed that a large number of unauthorized layouts and unauthorized buildings are
cropping up in urban areas.
2. Background:
In order to regulate such type of constructions and to bring them into the main stream of planned development, the
Government have already taken measures and brought out Revised Building Rules in the year 2012 wherein effective
enforcement systems and mechanisms have been created such as mortgaging 10% of built-up area which are assuredly,
making Occupancy Certificate mandatory for obtaining electricity and water & sewerage connections, severe penalties for
building violations, registration of buildings to be done only as per sanctioned plans etc. While the Revised Building Rules
take care of regulating the present and future developments, there is a felt need for finding a pragmatic solution for certain
types of constructions in deviation of sanctioned plan or unauthorized constructions that have come up in large numbers
over a period of time.
3. Amendments to Municipal Laws:
The Government, with a view to regulate the unauthorized constructions, has come up with a pragmatic solution namely
Regularisation of unauthorized constructions and constructions in deviations of the sanctioned plan in order to help the
people to bring unauthorized constructions in to planning fold and also to remove the threat or fear of demolition.
It is an opportunity for the public for their benefit to get their unauthorized constructions regulated. To give effect to the
above policy relevant Municipal Laws have been amended for this purpose and Statutory Rules have been issued for
implementation of Compulsory Disclosure Scheme for Penalisation and Regulation of Unauthorizedly Constructed
Buildings and Buildings constructed in deviation to the sanctioned plan.
4.

Objectives of Regularisation:
I.
To regulate each and every building constructed unauthorisedly or in deviation of the sanctioned plan so as to
create deterrence against any such practice.
II.

To bring all the unauthorized constructions into planning fold and to regulate the development in urban areas.

III.

To provide an opportunity to the owners of the buildings to regulate their unauthorized constructions and
deviations made to the sanctioned plan.

IV.

To provide relief to several persons who have purchased buildings without any knowledge about the building
regulations.

5. Applicability:
Telangana State Regularisation of Unauthorizedly Constructed Buildings and Buildings constructed in deviation of the
sanctioned Plan Rules-2015 (herein after called BR) envisages the penalization and regulation of certain categories of

MODEL CALCULATIONS FOR BUILDING REGULARIZATION


I

Individual residential building / commercial / Non commercial buildings (Rs. / Sqfts)


(a) Ex:- Residential building (Total unauthorized / Deviation to sanctioned plan) Plot area (101 to 300.0sqmts).
In this case the rate applicable is Rs.30/- per sqft
Ex:- Constructed built-up area in all floors 6500.0sqft (6500 x Rs.30/- = 1,95,000/)
Actual regularization charges with reference to land value as on 28-10-2015 assume the market value as on
28-10-2015 as Rs.15,000/- the actual charges will be 50% i.e. Rs. 1,95,000/- x 50% = Rs. 97,500/(Note: In case the plot is unauthorized layout the owner has to obtain separate LRS approval as per G.O.Ms.
no.151 MA dt:02-11-2015.)
(b) Residential building in plot areas 301 to 500.0 sqmts.
Assuming the owner constructed 5 floors in which 2 are permitted by GHMC with 2000.0sqft in each floor, but
constructed 2800 in each floor for all 5 floors.
In this case the 2 floors are to be treated as deviation to sanctioned pan and 3 upper floors are unauthorized.
The rate applicable are Rs.60/- per sqft for deviated areas and Rs.100/- per sqft for unauthorized floors.
(i) for permitted floors (2 floors)
(constructed area - permitted area) x No. of floors = (2800 - 2000) x 2 floors 800 x 2=1600 0sqft,
Charges @ Rs.60/ per sqft = 1600 x 60
= Rs. 96,000/(ii) For unauthorized floors
2800sqft x 3 floors =8400sqft
Charges @ Rs.100 x 8400
= Rs.8,40,000/Total =Rs.9,36,000/Actual charges with reference to land value as on 28-10-2015 assuming Rs. 20,000/- as market value i.e. 50%.
Actual charges payable = 9,36,000/- x 50% = Rs.4,68,000/(C) Multiple Dwelling units / flats / apartment complexes
(i) Covered with approved plan but with deviations.
Ex:- There are 4 units of 1100.0sqft,
There are 4 units of 600.sqft and 5 units of 1600.0sqft.
The regularization charges will be
4 x Rs. 25,000/- = 1,00,000/4 x Rs. 12,500/- = 50,000/5 x Rs. 40,000/- = 2,00,000/Total Rs. = 3,50,000/Actual charges with reference market value or land as on 28-10-2015. assuming Rs. 8000/- per sqyds. i.e. 40%.
Actual charges pay able will be Rs. 3,50,000/- x 40% = Rs 1,40,000/(d) Ex:- The owner obtained permission for 4 floors for apartments with deviation and constructed unauthorized
additional floor.
Ex:- 4 flats of 1200sqft each floor and 4 flats or 1200sqft in 5th floor.
(i) Total flats 4 each floor in 4 floors = 4 x 4 x Rs. 25000/- = Rs. 4.00.000/(ii) 5th floor 4 x 1200 x 100
= Rs. 4. 80. 000/= Rs. 8,80,000/Actual charges with reference to market value of land as on 28-10-2015
assuming market value as Rs. 20,000/- i.e. 50%.
Actual charge payable = Rs. 8,80,00 x 50% = Rs. 4,40,000/-

REGULARISATION OF UNAPPROVED AND
ILLEGAL LAYOUT RULES - 2015

5. Guidelines for Regularisation of Unapproved and Illegal layouts in


Municipal Corporations, Municipalities, Urban Development
Authorities and Grampanchayats falling in Master Plan Limits.
1. Introduction
The level of urbanization in the state has been accelerating as such suffering under the pressure of uneven economic
development and rapid population growth as a result of both migration and natural increase in population. The rapid
economic growth taking place in the state is likely to further increase the urban population in a significant manner. In
this process of economic growth it is noticed that, among other things, a large number of unapproved and illegal
layouts are cropping up in all urban areas.
2. Background
The rapid urbanization has put tremendous pressure on lands in urban areas. Government have in the past brought out
a scheme for regularization of such unapproved layouts but this was met with limited success since it was a voluntary
scheme with onus on the plot owners and there were no deterrent provisions against the owners who have not come
forward for regularization. It is also observed that there are many unapproved and illegal layouts which are not only in
violation of Master Plan and Layout Rules but also deficient in layout norms and development standards and lacking in
basic civic amenities like proper roads and connectivity, water supply, drainage, street lights on account of which
frequent complaints are being received from the public. Such substandard and unapproved subdivision of land into
building plots is not only defeating the purpose of planned development but also affecting the planned extension of
services and civic amenities by urban local bodies
3. Rules for Regulation of Unapproved Layouts:
Government with a view to bring all these unplanned areas into the fold of planned development and to arrange basic
facilities in these areas has come up with a pragmatic solution namely Regulation of Unapproved and illegal layouts.
To give effect to the above policy, Government have issued Statutory Rules for Regularisation of Unapproved and illegal
layouts (herein after called Layout Regularisation Rules-2015). It is intended to help the people to bring such
unapproved layouts into the planning fold by getting them regulated and to enable them to get building permissions.
4.
1.
2.
3.
4.

Objectives:
To bring all unauthorized layouts/sub-divisions into planning frame work and regulate the development.
To facilitate the implementation of master plan.
To improve the circulation pattern of roads.
To provide relief to the several persons who have purchased plots without awareness about layout
regulations/layout permissions.

5.

GOVERNMENT OF TELANGANA
ABSTRACT
Telangana Regularization of Unapproved and Illegal Layout Rules, 2015 - Orders - Issued.
MUNICIPAL ADMINISTRATION & URBAN DEVELOPMENT (M1) DEPARTMENT
G.O.Ms. No. 151

Dated : 02-11-2015.

ORDER:
Government of Telangana with a view to promoting planned development of urban areas in the State are encouraging
development through approved layouts and development of integrated townships through both public and private
initiative. However, Government has observed that there are many unapproved and illegal layouts which are not only in
violation of the Statutory Development Plan/Master Plan and Layout Rules but also deficient in layout norms and
development standards and lacking in basic civic infrastructure facilities like proper roads, street lights and drainage. On
account of the above, frequent complaints are being received from the public. Such substandard and unapproved subdivisions of land into building plots is not only defeating the very objective of planned development but also affecting the
planned extension of services and amenities by the local bodies. Government have in the past brought out a scheme of
regularization of such unapproved layouts but they met with limited success since it was a voluntary scheme with onus on
plot owners to come forward for regularization and there were no deterrent provisions against the owners who did not
come forward for regularization. Therefore in order to bring all these unplanned areas into the fold of planned development
and to provide basic facilities in these areas so as to promote an overall and integrated area and city level development and a
better quality of life for the citizens, Government hereby issue the Rules for Regularization of Unapproved and Illegal

MODEL CALCULATION FOR LAYOUT REGULARIZATION


I.
Regularization of unauthorized plots located in other than slums
Ex:-For plot of size 250.0sqyds i.e. 209.00sqmts:- This plot comes under the category of 101. to 300.0sqrnts plot.
(a)

Basic Regularization charges to be taken as Rs.400/- per sqmts 209.0sqmts x Rs.400/-=83600


The market value from registration department on the date 28-10-2015 to be taken. Assuming for example the
market value is Rs.15000/- per sqyds.
Actual regularization charges will be 50% fo the basic regularization charges i.e. 83600 x 50% =Rs.41,800/-

(b) Pro-rata open space charges:- 14% of the plot value as per registered document i.e. market value on the
date of registration by present owner.
Example:-market value as per registered document is Rs.4500/- per sqyds.
The pro-rata open space charges =4500 x 250 x 14% =1,57,500/(c)

II.

Conversion charges:- The conversion charges are applicable as per rules (7) of except in cases specified in
rule (5). The charges are to be collected as per G.O.Ms.No.439 MA dt:13-06-2007in this case assumed the site
falls in residential us zone as per master plan = Nil, total charges payable = a + b + c=41,800 + 1,57,500 + Nil
=1,99,300/-

Unauthorized plots in slum areas:(a) Basic penalization charges @ Rs. 5/- per sqmts irrespective of plot area and land value.
Ex:- Plot area 120.sqyds = 100.00sqmts 100.0sqmts x Rs.5/- = 500/-.
(b) Pro-rata openspace chages:- 14% on market value assuming market value Rs.3000/- per sqyds (120 x 3000 x
14%=Rs.50,400/-) (c) Conversion charges (if applicable) Assumed Nil, total amount payable a+ b+ c=500 +
50,400 + Ni1=50,900/-
