2019 ias preliminary exam test series

The Telangana government has approved a law on land acquisition within the purview of the Land Acquisition Act 2013, enacted by Parliament to replace the controversial GO 123 and subsequent orders by incorporating the directions of High Court.

By enacting the new law in place of the land acquisition policy introduced in the form of GO 123, the State government hopes to speed up acquisition/procurement of land for irrigation, industrial and other development projects.

Cabinet has given its nod for replacing six other ordinances issued in the recent past with necessary Acts, including on setting up of a Backward Classes Commission, establishing Police Commissionerates at Karimnagar, Nizamabad, Siddipet and Ramagundam, reorganisation of districts, transfer of cases pertaining to Telangana to High Court after opting out of Andhra Pradesh Administrative Tribunal, and others.
