The State has issued orders extending the last date for disposing pending applications under the BPS and also the Layout Penalisation Scheme (LRS) till May 31.

No new applications will, however, be accepted during this period. Principal Secretary, Department of Municipal Administration & Urban Development, Sam Bob issued a memo stating that the deadline has been extended following a request made by the Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority and other urban local bodies. The extra time is to enable the local bodies clear eligible applications where the balance penal amounts or a few mandatory certificates, including Google Earth maps for BPS indicating that the period of construction, have to be submitted.
