The Andhra Pradesh Government has relaxed some of the provisions of its Order which made it mandatory for developers to reserve 20 per cent of developed land for the economically weaker section and lower income groups.

The Government has exempted housing projects coming up within five acres from the mandatory reservation.

If the project area is over five acres, the builder has to provide 10 per cent of the total built-up area for the economically weaker section or they can reserve some units.

Developers taking up projects above 3,000 sq.m. and up to five acres have to pay shelter fee to the respective municipal bodies.
