During the hearing of the WP, The Honourable High Court of Karnataka observed that violation and deviation will not be permitted and questioned the Government Pleader regarding the conduct of the sub-registrars.
“What kind of sub-registrars do you have, Mr Government pleader? All of them know only Khana and Khazana. Otherwise, how could he have approved documents without there being any occupancy certificate,” the Karnataka high court said on Wednesday.
The petitioners, many of them purchasers of apartments in G M Palya near HAL, have challenged non-issuance of permanent electricity connections to them.
The high court has asked petitioners Metro Bankers enclave and its proprietors to place all the facts by January 27 if their plea for regular electricity supply is to be considered by the court.
Taking officials to task, Justice Ram Mohan Reddy said: “This court will not permit any builder to flout norms. It is not known as to how the engineer in charge, an employee of the BBMP, permitted the occupancy in the building. It is also not known as to how the apartments were sold and sale deeds registered when no occupancy certificates were issued.”
