People cautioned against making purchase in the venture

Special teams of the Planning and Estate wings of the Visakhapatnam Urban Development Authority, taking up field inspection to identify unapproved and unauthorized development in VUDA's jurisdiction and also encroachments of VUDA lands, found an unauthorized layout at Sangivalasa in Bheemunipatnam mandal during its recent inspection.

Some private persons are developing the layout on an extent of 2.82 acres in survey number 22/p of Sangivalasa village without obtaining approval from VUDA. The team immediately removed boundary stones and other development works in the site. An official communication was sent to the local sub-registrar's office not to entertain any registration in the layout. The special teams function under the direct control of Vice-Chairman Kona Sasidhar and supervised by Chief Urban Planner R.J. Vidyullatha and the Estate Officer M. Venkateswara Rao. The Vice-Chairman advised the general public not to take up any transaction in the layout as the developers were not given any permission either from VUDA or the local body. The layout has been identified as unauthorized and no permissions will be given for construction or further development works in the plots purchased there, he stated.Mr. Sasidhar said public may forward complaints against any unauthorized construction or development of layout taking place in their area or encroachments of VUDA properties.
