AKRAMA IS SKARMA NOW !!!
Regularisation of illegal and unauthorized constructions in bangalore
It is reliably learnt that the Governor of Karnataka Sri.H.R.Bharadwaj has given his assent to the much infamous regularization scheme in the name of `Akrama Sakrama`, The Bill may bring cheer to thousands of property owners in the city, who had violated and deviated the sanctioned building plan and all relevant statutes. The property owners may now be able to regularise their building bye law deviations, specifically deviations in setback and floor area ratio. about 80 per cent of the 16 lakh properties in city have some deviation
As per the Karnataka Town and Country Planning (KTCP) And Certain Other Laws (Amendment) Act, 2009, and the amended Karnataka Municipal Corporations Act, 1976, residential property owners will be able to regularise deviations up to a maximum of 50 per cent and for the commercial buildings, the maximum deviations allowed is up to 25 per cent.
This may be applicable to buildings constructed before December 3, 2009 but, the polity may decide the effective date.
The BBMP Commissioner Mr.M. Lakshminarayan said that the building byelaw violations are common and most citizens deviate from the sanctioned plan. This could be for a variety of reasons, including vaastu. The BBMP only allows five per cent violations.
He said that the largest beneficiaries of this scheme will be large apartment complexes and big commercial buildings, who have accrued the violations. “Individual, small property owners may not be in large numbers, neither will the deviations be huge.”
Mr. Laskhminarayan said the BBMP had not yet assessed the revenue that it will get from this one-time payment to regularise their deviations. “However, the BBMP will not compromise on safety aspects. Regularisation of deviations will be done only if there is a full compliance of safety norms.”
WAIT FOR THE RULES AND REGULATIONS !!!!
