A press report
Karnataka Legislative Assembly Speaker K.B. Koliwad, who chairs the Joint Committee on Tank Encroachment in Bengaluru, said the committee will recommend dismissal of officials of the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) or other departments who sanctioned building plans and issued “A” khatas for structures that encroached storm water drains (SWDs) and lake beds.
The Speaker, who inspected illegal constructions in the city last week, told presspersons that the committee would submit its final report by October end.
The panel would recommend filing of criminal cases against realty developers and seizure of their properties if they found constructed houses/buildings/apartments encroaching SWDs and lake beds. An 8,000 page document with information on city’s lakes from surveyors and officials had been put together, he said on Monday.
A drafting committee has been constituted to prepare a final report, which is expected to be voluminous. The report would recommend demolition of all illegal buildings/houses constructed on SWDs and lake beds, he said.
The committee would recommend stringent action against officials and developers and it would be the responsibility of the government to execute it, he added.
