Andhra HC halts govt’s plans to sell lands in Vizag

69

The Andhra Pradesh High Court on Friday halted the state government’s plans to sell government lands in Visakhapatnam.

The court decision came as it heard a petition challenging the sale decision.

Earlier also, the court stayed the government’s plans to sell lands under Build AP, following a petition.

The court said the same stay orders will also apply now, considering the government issued notifications to sell lands at five places in the port city.

It also ordered tenders with respect to the sale not be finalised.
