Hyderabad, Mar 27 (UNI) The Justice P Ramakrishna Raju Commission has not pointed out any irregularities in the allotment of 487.20 acres of Government land to the Raghuram Cements Limited at Rs one lakh per acre, according to Revenue Minister D Prasada Rao.

In the Action Taken Report (ATR) tabled in the Andhra Pradesh Assembly today, the Minister said the State Government had approved the report of the Commission, which had not suggested any further action.

The one-man commission was instituted by the Congress Government on May 14, 2007, after the opposition raised a hue and cry over allotment of the land in Kadapa district to Raghuram Cement Company Ltd, in which Chief Minister Y S Rajasekhara Reddy's son Y S Jaganmohan Reddy was one of the Directors.

Personally inspecting the Government lands sold under public auction to the company, the Commission had found that the Government had meticulously followed the procedure while issuing orders for alienating the Government lands in question, he said.

The Commission had concluded in its report, submitted to the Government on August 29, 2007, that leasing of the mines to the Company was as per established norms, procedures and provisions of law, the Minister said.
