It is learnt that the State Government of Karnataka has proposed to double the existing property taxes for the unauthorised constructions or buildings and the buildings which have violated the sanctioned plans or by laws, till its demolition or regularisation.

Payment of this double tax does not confer any right, title and interest to the owner of the property nor does it is regularised.

After the famous Campa Cola of Mumbai and Maradu of Kochi, the eyes have turned red and the High Court Of Karnataka has directed the BBMP to come up with all the illegal and unauthorised constructions within its jurisdictions and the action plan to remove them. It is further observed that the complainants name and address should be confidential.

Few sellers /owners assert or say that they have A katha for their illegal properties. A katha without proper approvals or not constructed as per the sanctioned plan is void or invalid. Therefore, A katha does not regularise illegality.

Akrama-Sakrama is still in limbo.

MARADU OF BANGALORE- A NEWS REPORT FROM NEWS CHANNEL – This the view and report-republished for information only.

This is only for information


The High Court of Karnataka has come down heavily on the BBMP and its lethargic attitude regarding the demolition of illegal and unauthorised construction and sought clarification from the BBMP.

The Court was not pleased at the reply, which was evasive and the court was intimated that the civic authority does not have money and man power to take action on illegal constructions.

The Court directed the BBMP to file all the details and have indicated that it will direct the State Government to provide complete support with men and finance to remove or demolish the illegal constructions.

Regularisation of properties within BDA jurisdiction-Old Wine in New Bottle

The present Government in karnataka has proposed a regularisation scheme of properties within BDA ambit, which includes, properties, (some or few) which had been notified for acquisition, but could not take possession, buildings with violations and buildings without approved building plan. It is said that there are over 75,000 such properties in BDA layout.

It is another form of Akrama-Sakrama. But, the proposal is to bring in an amendment to the BDA Act.

The proposal is to collect 75% of the guidance value of the properties, which are measuring below 1,200 sft and 100% of the guidance value for the properties above 1,200 sft. As per this proposal, if the guidance value of the property as on date is Rs.4,000/- per square feet, for a 30 feet X 40 feet site, totally measuring 1,200 square feet, the penalty or charges or levy at 75% is Rs.3,000/- per square feet, works out at Rs.36,00,000/- for the properties, which are built on BDA acquired or notified site.

But, final proposal has to come out. A Cabinet sub-committee has been formed to look into the issues.

But, this proposal is subject to legal validation, as the old amendment to KTCP Act is still languishing in the Apex Court.

Deal with the best and the reputed Agencies and companies to buy properties- With excellent track recrod & reference without criminal cases and do not go by internet ratings.


Some are freelance agencies, all are engaged in different forms and names and many have formed illegal syndicates to sell properties.

There are agents, who have close contacts with criminals, approach the buyers, saying that they have the best properties for sale and have contacts with the bank officials, even to get them the attached properties.

Be careful.
Conduct a thorough investigation before negotiating with the agents, brokers and marketing tele callers.

Electronic Media and Internet is infested with huge number of decoys, some claims to be the owners, some GPA Holders, some relatives and there are innumerable type of dummy operators.

Many buyers, have got into this trap and never express their tragedy or dilemma or their problems and loose their hard earned money.

While, buying or even renting, conduct a thorough and diligent enquiry and then proceed as the illegalities cannot be even dream about.

New scam is that the sellers/agents/owners etc., appear and promise everything and provide them with the inspection and the documents, but, in fact, the owner does not even aware of the sale. The Stamps and Registration Department has detected some such transactions and an investigation is underway.

Home Loans and other expenditures- Addition to the sale value of the properties.

The values quoted hereunder are approximate and for practical study.

Salaried personal and mid level businessmen usually opt for home loans to avail loans at competitive interest rates and also to save tax.

The general bank condition is that the minimum investment from the buyers must be 20% to 25% and the remaining sale value will be financed by the financial institutions.

The home loan interest rates vary from one Bank to the other only 0.10% to 1% P.A.

The situation is ripe now to avail it at highly competitive rates and also look for a decent accommodation or apartment or site or house for the purchase.

It is strongly suggested that the EMI or monthly repayment of home loans must not EXCEED 20% TO 25% of the NET INCOME OR SALARY. If the take home salary, after all the cuts and deductions is around Rs.50,000/- per month, then the EMI or Home loan repayment must not exceed Rs.10,000 to Rs.12,500/-.

The property buyer must also additionally buy or insure himself for the entire home loan extended for the full term. It is also suggested that the property buyer must cover himself for all kinds of risks with the insurance company through a TERM POLICY, the premium payable, quarterly or half yearly, so that the burden of payment of premium is not felt.

It is noticed that in the awe of acquiring a property, the proposed buyer, borrows amounts at exorbitant interest rates (Personal Loan from the banks) from friends and relatives, endangering their social status, apart from paying abnormal interests, to make the initial investment of 20% to 25% of the sale consideration. It is advised, not to borrow at exorbitant rates as personal loan.

The most important factor, after the purchase of the property is the INTERIORS. The google throws up 100s of designers, architects and companies with wide range of offers. Beware, all of them are in the market to make profits. All the fake/bogus discounts and offers are just an eye wash to trap the potential customers. The budget must be within the reach with basic requirements, which must be comfortable and easy to maintain. The interiors or furniture budget must not exceed 3% to 6%.

The buyers must take into account the total (Property Value) sale consideration, GST, Power and Water deposit and charges, club house charges, Car parking charges ( if any) insurance premium, loan processing charges, interiors expenditure, registration charges (stamp duty, cess and Registration Fee) and Katha Transfer fee and expenditure.

In fact, the GST alone is a major addition, Power and Water (BESCOM & BWSSB- Bangalore) deposits and registration fees are almost fixed, works out around 18%, 3%, 3% and 5.60% respectively. In total, 29.60% or 30% is the standard or static addition, apart from other expenditure to the quoted price of the property.

But, in case of individual sites or houses or villas, GST of 18% is not applicable, but, the BESCOM & BWSSB deposits and related expenditures must be met. All other expenditure remain the same.

Standard fixed expenditure of 30% + 6% interiors + 4% (insurance-loan processing-katha-Misc) thus 40% additional expenditure adds up to the sale value of the apartment.

Therefore, prepare a good budget, within your reach and means, buy the property, become the proud owner and ENJOY it.

Bank Auction Properties-Check it out

The buyers of the properties are under the impression and concept that the properties attached by the banks for the default of the repayment of loans, have good title. NO, it is not.

Some of the ads in the newspapers informing the public about such attachments are worth reading.

Apartments must have CC and OC. As it has been noticed that majority of the properties attached does not have OC.

Sites and Houses, must have good title, but, it has been noticed that majority of the properties does not have good title, abnormal deviation and violation of all and every laws of this country.

FARM SITES-LANDS IN AND AROUND CITIES IN KARNATAKA-There may be a notification on such illegal activities

Due to abnormal complaints about illegalities in the FARM SITES/LANDS across major cities in the state of Karnataka, empowered by the KLR Act, the State Government may decline to provide or allot or allocate separate Sub number or Survey Number for such properties.

The proposal was with the Government for a long time, as there was innumerable deviations, violations and illegalities noticed and referred, in respect of illegal Farm Sites or Lands, the Govt will soon issue a notification in this regard.

Bangalore Real Estate Market Trends

The Real Estate in and around Bangalore is in STABILITY MODE and the prices of the properties is not in upward swing and there is very limited demand for the apartments.

There is almost a huge number of properties are being attached or seized due to the defaulted payments and the number of properties auctioned are also increasing.

The first time residential buyers have more option and at a bargain prices. But, the marketing teams and professionals might not provide them the luxury of the present day prices.

For investors, 2020 may be a good period to begin with.

The return on investments on residential properties bought between 2015 to 2019 might be around 1% to 4% and the capital appreciation is very minimal.

Golden Girl P.V.Sindhu Puts INDIA in the World Map

PV Sindhu became the first Indian to win the BWF World Championships, crushing Japan’s Nozomi Okuhara 21-7, 21-7 in just 38 minutes in a one-sided final on Sunday.



The Real Estate Market in Bangalore is very volatile. It is the right time to buy the properties with caution. The buyer appears to have an higher hand in the negotiations. The leading builders are not yielding to the pressure to sell, but middle class and other developers are yielding to the market pressure and have reduced the prices.

The returns or the rent on properties is just 1% to 5% on residential and 1% to 3% on industrial properties and 2% to 8% on commercial properties.

But, beware of properties on RAJA KALUVE AND LAKES. Anyday, the buffer zone may breach the existing or the present extent, as there may be a petition/application submitted to the Apex Court for revision.


It is strongly advised to thoroughly check the details and the procedure on which the katha of the properties obtained from BBMP. It is found that many A kathas are issued for illegal and unauthorised buildings in the BBMP limits.



Budget 2019 has proposed to increase the deduction that can be claimed for interest paid on loans taken for affordable housing by Rs 1.5 lakh to Rs 3.5 lakh per annum for houses valued up to Rs 45 lakh. The deduction is available on loans taken up to March 31, 2020.

A Proposal to Ban the construction of Apartments in Bangalore for 5 years

The Deputy Chief Minister, during an interview expressed a view that there is a proposal to STOP the construction of Apartments for 5 years, it is applicable for the legitimate builders, who are coming up or building apartment complex by complying all the rules and regulations, but for majority of scrupulous and fraud builders, who construct apartments in 30 feet X 40 feet, 40 feet x 60 feet and 50 feet x 80 feet sites in revenue areas, converted lands and everywhere, do not require any sanctions or plans.

At the same time, there are financial institutions, funding such illegal activities, the scrupulous builders thrive with the assistance and help of these financial institutions and sell the illegal flats to the buyers. Majority of the buyers are very well aware of what they are buying. They are not ignorant. They need some space to live in and are not bothered about the sanctions, laws, plans and compliance.

All these illegal activities are very well supported by local goons and politicians and sometimes, financed by the mafia cartel.

In such a scenario, stopping or banning the legitimate constructions does not make any sense.

If the Government is serious, it must BAN OR STOP the illegal constructions.

1). The Town Planning Department, Engineering Department and Revenue Departments must take severe penal action of illegal constructions.

2). Block the funds flow or finance from these financial institutions, automatically, the illegal constructions will come down.

3). Stop the power, water supply and do not allow for the septic tanks to be built or provide sanitary connections to illegal building.

4). Do not issue B Form for these illegal buildings.

5). Cancel the B forms issued to all buildings which have violated sanctioned building plans.

6). Permit only one vehicle per family, who have the financial capability and financial credit worthy to own a vehicle and permits must be given only for those, who have parking slots or parking area.

7). Penalise footpath parking.



a. Only genuine cases must be issued permits to buy the vehicles.

b. Only genuine and capable individuals must be provided with bank loans to buy vehicles.

Automatically, illegal constructions will come down, Genuine activity will begin. Traffic management will be easy.
