POTABLE WATER IN BENGALURU & WATER POLLUTION BY ILLEGAL DYEING UNITS – SLEEPING GIANT – KSPCB


Inspite of a good rainy season, Bengaluru is facing water shortage, even, though, there is a good and uninterrupted supply of cauvery water. The situation will be acute and grim. The underground water table in many areas of Bengaluru is not worthy of human use and is contaminated. The recent NGT order on Bellanduru and Agara lakes draws a ugly feature wherein over 400 apartment complexes, (approximately 20,000 apartments with 1,00,000 citizens living) discharging over 50,00,000 lakhs to 1,00,00,000 lakhs liters of untreated domestic sewage and coupled with industrial sewage has seeped deep into the underground water table and thus the lakes are POISONED and beyond redemption. The NGT has taken a bold and strong remedial step by directing both the state government and bbmp to immediately take up appropriate remedial measures.

The cloth dyeing units, shifted from Tirupur and other areas to Bangalore south (Bommanahalli, tavarekere,madivala, sudamangara, kashmir,gurrappanapalya,hongasandra,singasandra and many other such areas are discharging highly pathogenic sewage, which might contain CYANIDE. There was the pure silk yarn and cloth dyeing units, use CYANIDE extensively in the dyeing. The discharged colour could be seen in the Drains in Tavarekere, kashmire(near KSRTC-Akkithimmanahally) Sudamanagar ( a part), Garvebavipalya and have since shifted their illegal activities to in and around kengeri and ramanagara villages.

The KSPCB has not woken up and has not initiated any strict and severe action to contain the same, resulting in Highly contaminated, untreated and polluted water being discharged by these illegal dyeing units.

Active citizen role is required to contain this illegal activities.

BBMP SEEKS AMENDMENT TO CURB VIOLATIONS – BBMP COMMISSIONER-A PRESS REPORT


The Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) Commissioner N. Manjunath Prasad has written to the State government’s Department of Urban Development stressing on the need to bring in amendments to eight sections of the Karnataka Municipal Corporations Act, 1976. This will enable the civic body to act against property owners who have violated building by-laws or have deviated from the sanctioned plan.

“This will make way for a more orderly growth of the city,” said Mr. Prasad. If the BBMP has its way, violators may have to demolish or remove unauthorised structures or deviations at their own cost.

The commissioner has sought certain deletions and additions to sections of the Act pertaining to regulation of buildings. While justifying the need for the amendments, Mr. Prasad stated in the letter that the existing provisions have ‘less effect in controlling deviations and unauthorised construction of buildings’.

For instance, the moment notices are issued by the BBMP, the building owner concerned obtains a stay from either the civil court or the Karnataka High Court, though the suit is not maintainable. Despite the stay, the aggrieved person will complete the construction.

“It would be expensive for the BBMP not only to conduct litigations at all levels, but also in the matter of bringing down the deviated and unauthorised constructions,” he said in the letter.

If the proposed amendments are made, then citizens will have to give an undertaking to either construct or re-construct in accordance with the plan sanctioned and that in the event of any unauthorised construction or deviation, they will remove the same at their own cost. They will be given time to do so, failing which the BBMP commissioner can direct the officials concerned to remove such portions at the cost of the owner. The commissioner may also take necessary steps to stop construction or withdraw the sanctioned plan.

If the construction goes ahead without the required permission and the deviated or unauthorised portion is not removed even after 30 days from the date of receipt of notice, the owner or person responsible may be liable to pay 10% of the guidance value of the site every month.

Mr. Prasad has also proposed that the BBMP can prevent occupancy of such premises by directing the service providing authorities to withdraw the utility / facility to the premises till it issues the Occupancy Certificate. He has proposed that no case shall be instituted against the corporation or civic officials for taking action as per provisions of the KMC Act.

“If these amendments are brought in, the BBMP will be able to act against violators during the construction stage itself. With the present provisions, this is not possible,” he pointed out.

BBMP-A PRESS REPORT


BBMP proposes an amendment to the Karnataka Municipal Corporations Act, 1976

If the civic body has its way, property owners who have violated building by-laws may have to pay a hefty tax. The Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) has proposed to double the property tax for owners who have deviated from the approved plan. Civic officials who turned a blind eye to the violations may be looking at jail time.

An amendment to the Karnataka Municipal Corporations Act, 1976, has been proposed and is currently pending with the State government’s Law Department. Once approved, the BBMP will identify owners violating by-laws and issue notices to them.

Speaking to reporters on Friday, G. Parameshwara, Deputy Chief Minister and Bengaluru Development Minister, said the collection of double property tax from those who have deviated from the approved plan has already been applied to all city corporations in the State, excluding the BBMP. “The thinking now is to include the BBMP, for which the KMC Act will have to be amended,” he said.

The Akrama Sakrama scheme, which is pending before the Supreme Court, allows property owners to regularise some deviations. However, the scheme does not cover violations of the approved building plan, he explained.

Tackling loopholes

Mr. Parameshwara said the BBMP had proposed a few other amendments to the KMC Act. To prevent violators of the approved building plan from getting a stay from the Karnataka High Court, the BBMP has proposed to collect 50% of the building value as a deposit before owners can approach the court challenging the notice issued by the civic body for violations. That apart, three months’ imprisonment has been proposed for BBMP officials who are found to have aided the violations.

BBMP Commissioner N. Manjunath Prasad said these measures will help bring in orderly development in the city.

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.
