The cost of regularisation of lands between 125 sq.yds and 150 sq.yds in notified slums was fixed at 10% of the government price and 25% in case of lands in other areas.
Applicants have to pay 25% of the price of lands in extent up to 250 sq. yds and 50% in respect of those up to 500 sq. yds. The government had fixed 75% of the existing price for encroached lands above 500 sq. yds and 100% of the base price in the case of non-residential structures.
