The Telangana High Court declined to vacate the interim stay order for Dharani.

The plea was filed by the state in the Telangana HC which dismissed to vacate the stay on the interim order concerning the collection of data of non-agricultural properties in the State.

Advocate General B. S. Prasad appealed for a vacation of the stay order.

The Court questioned the state government on the registration of non-agricultural properties and stated that the state government cannot pressurize citizens to register non-agricultural properties on Dharani Portal.

The bench questioned if any citizen does not upload his property details, would that person lose the right over the land.

Under 300A of the Constitution of India, restricting someone from selling his property would be a violation of that person’s rights.

“The petitioners are not challenging government’s intention. But they are asking for streamlining and fast-tracking of collection of data and backing of the process by legislation,” the CJ said while raising concerns over the right to privacy of an individual.
