Madanapalle: The Endowments Department said that lands already auctioned in B.Kothakota mandal will be re-auctioned as the past bidder never paid the amount completely. Seven years ago 50.6 acres land was auctioned for Rs.50 lakh, but at present it costs more than Rs. 2 crore. But 70 per cent of cost has to be recovered by the government without interest.
