BBMP has proposed to levy (penalty) of 50% of the property tax for the unauthorised structures


The BBMP has finally woken up to initiate the penal proceedings against illegal and unauthorised construction or deviation or violation of the building by-laws, by levying 50% penalty of the existing property taxes on the owners and make the concerned officials and engineers responsible for illegal, unauthorised constructions, violation and deviation from the sanctioned building plan, to put an end to the illegalities.

It is also found that many of the illegal constructions go unnoticed and if action is initiated against such violations, the violators approach the court and obtain a temporary stay and the BBMP has recommended to the Government to amend KMC Act, that in such a situation, 50% of the value of the property must be deposited with the BBMP as a prelude to approach the court for any relief.

This may act as a deterrent to the illegal constructions.
