COMING-COMING-NEVER CAME-THE NOTORIOUS AKRAMA-SAKRAMA-


The money strapped Government is making all efforts to collect money in all the available ways.

  1. Borrow.
  2. Sell BDA corner sites.
  3. Bring in the AKRAMA-SAKRAMA.
  4. Levy new tax.
  5. Regularise houses illegally constructed on THE BDA LAND.
  6. Regularisation of DC Converted Property.
  7. Revenue Sites registration.
  1. The easiest way to get money, not for any development, for survival, is to BORROW. This has been going on for ages. This will continue. But, this is not sufficient.

2. Sure Shot:Auction all available Corner BDA, MUDA or any other site.

3. The notorious AKRAMA-SAKRAMA is languishing in the Supreme Court, All the Governments tried to confuse and convince the apex court to get GREEN NOD, failed miserably all these years. Now, with COVID-19,trying to convince the court to get its NOD. But, the chances are very remote, unless, until some modifications or changes made to the existing amendment. The Government, does not mind doing anything to get the AKRAMA-SAKRAMA going. WAIT, WATCH & SEE.

4. Definitely, in one or the other way, some tax will be levied on the citizens, very soon, whether, direct or indirect.

5. Sure shot: The government has neither any hesitation nor reservations on this issue. Regularise the buildings constructed on the BDA LAND and make money.

But, regularisation of buildings constructed on BDA property might be CHALLENGED IN THE COURT OF LAW. There is every possibility of a long legal battle is expected on this.

6. Again, the regularisation of DC Converted sites is subject to the outcome of the Supreme Court Order or direction.

7. Permit the registration of the Revenue Sites. It is a very difficult proposal, but for the want of money, anything can be done. But, the buyers are at high risk.

ON LINE Sale of Properties – Watch out – Do not jump out and book – WAIT


Many tempting offers, so many free bees and at lowest rates- It is a TRAP. There are over 2,00,000 apartments ( new-old-resale-bank attached-distress sale) and many more will be in the market within 3 to 6 months.

The realty sector will have more properties to SELL, but their prices have not COME DOWN OR REDUCED. There will be fancy names and facilities, which are useless, are offered as free. The marketing team is stressed up and are compelled to meet the unbelievable, unreachable and unachievable targets, so you can hear lots of sugary talk and offers.

Once, the advance amount is paid, then, begins the misery. After the registration, misery will unfold its true face. Once, the possession is taken over, start living, the freebies offered and its value will be known.

By the time, it is realised, that an abnormal price or money paid for the property, the buyer is fully down and well trapped in the DEBT, it will take another 10 years to come out of it.

BE CAREFUL, BE MODEST, BUY WITHIN YOUR CAPACITY OR CAPABILITY. WAIT AND WATCH. THE PRICES MUST CRUMBLE.

DISTRESS SALE IS THE ORDER OF THE DAY.

The real story begins after 3 or 4 months of May, 2020, as the realty sector driven by the IT development, looses its sheen, due to Covid-19 after effects, there will be no NEW PROJECTS and the existing projects will be completed soon, there will not be much job offers, leave alone the jobs, there will not be any increments or new projects, naturally, reverse migration, might begin in 6 months, thereby, the demand for properties will trickle down and there might be a good number of properties at reasonably good prices will be offered or available. Even, if the prices are not low, it will be modest and it will be safe to buy during such periods.

The return on investment in properties (sites,houses & apartments) will be anywhere between 1% to 3%, if there is 75% occupancy, if the occupancy is 50%, then, there might be -1% to -3% and the scenario may not be good. Even, now the returns on the investment made in 2000 to 2015 is anywhere between 3% to 10% and between 2015-2020 is 1% to 3%.

SAVE. PLAY SAFE. DO NOT MAKE ANY FINANCIAL COMMITMENTS. DO NOT BOOK ANY PROPERTY for couple of months.

Coronovirus effect on the personal finances and property


The lockdown announced by the Government has adverse impact on the economy and it might take a long time for the recovery.

The RBI has announced the deferment of the EMI on the personal loans, Credit Card and Home Loans for 3 months.

But the dues must be paid with interest in the coming months. GST might be charged on the interest due or the interest charged on the outstanding amount at the specified rates, thus the repayment of the loans will be a major burden on the borrowers, as the GST will be added to it. Please check it out with your lender for confirmation.

It is time to manage the finances with utmost care now and contingency plan is the need of the hour.

The software market in other parts of the world does not seem to be encouraging and the job market (USA & Other countries) is very bleak and it is not the right time to buy properties for value appreciation.

The real estate scenario is very bleak and blur. There are few investors in the market. There is a overstock of apartments and the new projects will add more to the existing ones.

The Rent or the returns from the property will be or might be very low coupled with non-occupancy will increase the net liability.

But, There is a brighter side to this effect. It is the right time to buy the properties at the low prices, if available.

BBMP gets slap from SC for the application on the High Court Orders regarding Illegal and unauthorised buildings and constructions


In a major setback to BBMP, the SC declined to entertain the application for a TI and said that it would confirm the order of the High Court related to the survey and subsequent removal or demolition of illegal structures or constructions in the BBMP Limits.

Earlier, the High Court of Karnataka directed the BBMP to conduct a survey and report the matter about the same and the BBMP submitted a report stating that approximately 2.99 lakh buildings have violated or deviated from the sanctioned building plans and it does not have men and money power to act or remove the same. The High Court, observed that it would direct the state Government to provide funds and manpower to do the same.

The BBMP, smartly tried to turn the tables with an application before the Apex court, stating that there is a pending case(akrama-sakrama) before it, therefore, the High Court Order may be put on hold. But, the Apex Court declined and warned BBMP. Thereafter, the application has been withdrawn.

The illegal structures and unauthorised portions or construction might face issues.

We advice the buyers and tenants not to buy or take such properties on lease,(by paying a bulk amount) as it may be detrimental to their interests.

REGISTRATION OF PROPERTIES WITH NEW PROCEDURE IN KARNATAKA


With the onset of new procedures, streamlining the registration process to bring more authenticity, the department has made some changes regarding the scanning of katha and verification of katha and rtc online.

The documents will be verified and logged in for the registration. If there is any no issue or court orders against the schedule property, the seller and the buyer will get an OTP in their mobiles.

The witnesses and all the parties must provide self attested adhaar copies and even the witnesses will get the OTP in their mobile, thus authenticating the presence and specific person signing the document as witness.

The revenue sites with green katha (GOVINDA KATHA) cannot be registered. Once, the documents are verified for their authenticity, the e-katha will be verified by the system. If the e-katha is fake or bogus, then the system will reject the application for registration.

BBMP and BDA katha`s have not been connected with this system for verification. If it is done, then, the fraud and cheating might be reduced in the real estate property transaction.

ILLEGAL AND UNAUTHORISED PROPERTIES (BUILDINGS) WILL BE PENALISED by the levy of double tax


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.

HIGH COURT DIRECTIONS ON ILLEGAL AND UNAUTHORISED CONSTRUCTION WITHIN BBMP LIMITS


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.
