Country Club allege irregularities in land allotment to Hyderabad Metro Rail

Hyderabad हैदराबाद (HYB):  The Country Club of India Limited (CCIL) on Thursday said it would move the high court seeking a CBI probe into alleged irregularities in land allotment to the Hyderabad Metro Rail project.

CCIL was responding to a notice by Hyderabad Metro Rail Limited (HMRL) to partially demolish their corporate office in Begumpet. Addressing the media, club chairman Rajeev Reddy said the move was illegal as the HMRL had given a no-objection certificate (NOC) for the office. HMRL was going ahead with the demolition process despite the high court staying the construction on the premises of the CCIL, he said.

“The CCIL had spared over 1700 sq yards for the Metro Rail project in 2006, following which the HMRL issued an NOC to build the corporate office. We built the office only after receiving the NOC. But now the HMRL has issued a notice to partially demolish the building,” Rajeev Reddy said.

Apart from CCIL, buildings including White House, Lifestyle and Varun Motors face the threat of demolition .

Charging HMRL with deviating from norms and changing the alignment of the project to save properties of some vested interests at the cost of the traders in Begumpet, Reddy said there were irregularities in the land acquisition and allotment. “

I see vested interests of real estate sector behind the move.

We will request the High Court to order a CBI probe into it,” Rajeev said.
