AKRAMA-SAKRAMA HAS NO PROVISION FOR LARGE SCALE VIOLATION &DEVIATION
NO PROPER ANSWERS YET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! FROM THE GOVERNMENT
THE AKRAMA-SAKRAMA WRIT PETITION IS SLATED FOR HEARING(FINAL) ON 11-04-2011 IN THE HONOURABLE HIGH COURT OF KARNATAKA.
What is the penalty for properties that have exceeded the set of violations limits prescribed under the law? AKRAMA-SAKRAMA HAS NO ANSWER TO THIS BIG QUESTION. The new amendment bill passed in the assembly concentrates only on the penalties for smaller violations. The Government could not get the ASSENT of the Governor of Karnataka.
Gross violations across the city far exceed the ones within the set limits. According to BBMP`s own rough estimates, only 7,00,000 properties our of the total 17,00,000 properties will come under the current scheme, when implemented. This is just 20-25% of the overall target of regularisation.
The deviations, violations and encroachments are so high and blatant and in some cases, the entire layout or many multistoreyed buildings must be razed. Does the Government has got the guts to go ahead and demolish? Unauthorised/illegal layouts has only 20 feet to 25 feet roads and roads are blocked. The (lands) road stands in the name of the original seller or the agriculturise. How can the Government use public funds to develop a private property or a property which does not stand in its name and authority?
What about the bigger ones that are left our? They will be asked to bring down their violations within the set limits. The exact penalty for the gross violations is still under discussion. It is still open for debate and judicial intervention. The Write petition in the High Court may reach the higher courts, if a proper order is not made or if the Government could not propose or come up with a amicable or workable solution to this complex issue.
According to BBMP officials in the revenue department, what is presently inferred from the enactment is that violators must bring down their violation to the prescribed limit. But there is no answer to what happens if they do not conform/remove or bring it down, to it.
Even the punishment for those who do not pay penalty for violations within the set limit is also not clear as the corresponding rules to the enactment are yet to be framed. Will it be disconnection of water and electricity as mentioned in the enactment?
50% to 75% of the apartments have large scale and violation and deviation. Who will bear the penalty charges? Land lords? Sellers? or the Owners(buyers)? Why should they be penalised?
Many questions goes unanswered.
Again, No answers yet from the government.
Who will be benefited by this?
Middle Class? Yes. To a certain extent?
Who else? Builders and developers ? Yes.
Land mafia? Yes. 100%.
Will this be the end? Or if the Petitioners go ahead with Revision petition? Approach full bench? or Approach other higher Courts?
