The Hyderabad Metropolitan Development Authority (HMDA) has launched an online facility — Unauthorized Construction and Layouts Information System —to control illegal constructions within its jurisdiction.
Newspapers reported HMDA Commissioner T Chiranjeevulu as surging people to provide information on unauthorized structures through the online system.
HMDA officials will then visit the site and conduct a panchanama and upload inspection pictures and their report.
If it turns out to be illegal, notices would be slapped on the builder and action initiated as per the rules.
“The online system has unique features where a complainant can know the status of the complaint. It will also help the authority keep tabs on unauthorized structures,” said the HMDA chief.
