Golden Mile project

The HMDA had auctioned 70 acres in Kokapet village of Rajendranagar mandal in 2006. The auction has fetched Huda Rs 703 crore. The bidders paid Rs 435 crore upfront to the Huda. The bidders has later approached the court as there was a delay in handing over the property to them. They also contended that there were writ petitions pending with regard to the land which was not informed to them. In April 2010, a single-judge directed HMDA to refund the deposits to he petitioners within three months. HMDA went in appeal.

The Andhra Pradesh High Court has set aside a single-judge order directing HMDA to refund over Rs. 500 crore to successful bidders of land in the Golden Mile Project at Kokapet. The Court held that the bidders could seek relief from an appropriate forum for non-fulfilment of contractual obligations, but such a relief through write petition is not maintainable. Dec 27, 2012
