The deadline for registrations under Layout Regularization Scheme (LRS) has been extended by the Telangana government till October 31. The scheme, as is known, aims to bring unplanned/unapproved/unauthorized layouts into the fold of planned, sustainable development and to provide basic facilities in these areas. As per the scheme, owners are supposed to register plots/layouts either online or at Mee Seva centres.

"Representations have been received by the government that due to recent heavy rains, there have disruptions in internet services and power supply at several locations due to which many people have not been able to file their applications. Keeping this in view, we have extended the deadline," authorities said.

The government has said that the scheme is on its way to becoming a big success. "There has been a tremendous response to the scheme and so far more than 19.33 lakh applications have been received," official data says.

The scheme applies to the entire State, including areas under HMDA, municipalities and municipal corporations in districts and Gram Panchayats.
