What is Layout Regularization Scheme (LRS) Telangana
The state govt. of Telangana has a view to promote planned development of urban areas in the state. So, the KCR led state govt. is encouraging development through approved layouts and development of integrated townships through both public and private initiative. There are many unapproved and illegal layouts which are violating the Statutory Development Plan/Master Plan and Layout Rules lacking in development standards. These buildings and layouts are lacking in basic infrastructure facilities like proper roads, street lights and drainage.
Such substandard and unapproved sub-divisions of land into building plots is effecting objective of planned development along with the planned extension of services and amenities by the local bodies. Many unapproved and illegal layouts putting extra pressure on the local bodies due to infrastructure deficiencies. The state govt. has already decided not to allow registration of plots of such unapproved or illegal layouts. So, state govt. of Telangana has started the Layout Regularisation Scheme.
