AS no orders are passed, the Society filed W.P.No. 43145 of 2017 for deletion of the land from the prohibitory order list. Following the judgment in Vinjamuru Rajagopala Chary v. State of Andhra Pradesh, 2016 1 ALT 550 (FB) = 2016 (2) ALD 236 (FB), the said writ petition is disposed of on 25-01-2018 directing the 2nd respondent to consider and dispose of the representation of the society for deletion of the land from the prohibitory order list, within a period of three months, but no orders are passed so far.

No. 122/10 cannot be treated as the prohibited property, wherein it is clearly mentioned that the subject land is alienated to Ongole District Policemen Co-operative Housing Building Society.
