The steps taken by Chief Executive Officer Mohammed Asadullah to protect Waqf land in Telangana and to increase Board revenue are bearing fruits. Mohammed Asadullah who belongs to Revenue Department took strict action against illegal occupants within 5 months of assuming charge as Chief Executive Officer in Waqf Board and also took measures to get compensation of Waqf land acquired by government institutions.
He identifies 49 such Waqf properties in Greater Hyderabad limits which have been acquired by Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation and other government departments. After doing the survey of the lands acquired, their compensation will be estimated. He also identified 6 such valuable Waqf lands which were acquired by Greater Hyderabad Municipal Corporation for various affairs but did not pay compensation. After the survey of those lands their present market rate is estimated as Rs. 115,43,19,337 which is payable by the GHMC to Waqf Board.
Mr. Asadullah has decided to send a letter to the GHMC Commissioner to obtain this amount. Interestingly GHMC who has acquired Waqf land worth over 115 crore is not ready to waive the building fee of Rs. 4.60 Cr for Waqf Board complex.
