The Apex Court was hearing an URGENT HEARING of AKRAMA – SAKRAMA, an application filed by the Government Of Karnataka – seeking to revoke/vacate the STAY on the scheme – but the SC relented to revoke the Stay. The Stay continues.
NO RELIEF FOR THOSE, WHO HAVE COMMITTED AKRAMA, (Illegal layouts, revenue sites, farmhouses, farmlands in and around Bangalore, illegal buildings and unauthorized constructions)but have to live with the hope someday that they might get regularised.
The Government will notify the scheme soon and is awaiting the approval of the Chief Minister, after the final consultation with BBMP and UDD.
It will be issued this week, an official source stated.
The Bangalore City Minister, The Commissioner, BBMP and officials held a meeting and discussed about the process and procedures to enforce the Akrama – Sakrama scheme and it was learnt that the cut-off date may be extended and the 2013 (old) guidance value may be set as the value parameter and the procedures to be adopted for the regularisation.
If the VIOLATERS, does not submit the application within 3 months, the Government may cut off power and water supply to such properties, to pressurise the violators to tow in the line.
AKRAMA – SAKRAMA PERMITTED
The High Court of Karnataka has rejected the plaint against the amendment to the KTCP Act and allowed the regularisation of unauthorised layouts and buildings.
The Akrama-Sakrama is being heard continuously in the High Court, since yesterday and there were submissions by the Government which were challenged and posted for the hearing today.
It is said that there is NO BASIS for regularising 50% of the residential buildings and 25% pf the commercial buildings and it is formulated based on the Bangalore`s requirement.
The High Court of Karnataka has adjourned the hearing on the notorious Akrama – Sakrama Scheme to 08-03-2016 for the final hearing.
The Government Pleaded before the High Court to permit the regularisation scheme Only ONCE. But, the highmarish questions posed by the divisional bench to the Government Advocate was logical and was unable to respond to it.
1). If this scheme is permitted, it is like legalising the illegality?
2). Why do`not you make necessary amendments by permitting more than 5% deviation?
3). Who permitted these illegal constructions and how did they come up?
There were too many unanswered questions and there was only one request:
Please allow this scheme ONLY ONCE. But, the court did not relent and posted the hearing to 18-01-2016.
The Akrama Sakrama scheme has not reached its finality in the High Court and the Government has not been able to properly find solutions for the issues raised.
Many readers have sent queries regarding the status of the WP in the High Court and the processing of application had been STAYED. Till date, it has not been vacated.
