Illegal buildings,unauthorised constructions, illegal layouts and deviations – High Court questions the Govt


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.

The queries:

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 CITIZEN`S FORUM PROPOSE TO APPROACH THE JUDICIARY REGARDING AKRAMA SAKRAMA SCHEME – A PRESS REPORT


 AKRAMA -SAKRAMA – CITIZEN`S FORUM TO FILE WRIT PETITION IN THE COURT – LATEST UPDATE
A PRESS REPORT- 
A brainstorming session on Akrama Sakrama on Sunday concluded that the scheme not only equates major violations with minor infractions but also regularizes the same, by forcing residents to live with them. The interaction was organized by the Citizens’ Ac tion Forum (CAF), which announced that it will file a PIL against the scheme.

“If my neighbour violates the rules and constructs a five-storey house, I may not have a problem with it. But if someone sets up a big commercial establishment in the middle of a residential area, it will create problems to many residents,“ Vijay Me non of the CAF said, ruing that the scheme will force citizens to bear and live with all the inconveniences caused by the violations.

CAF president DS Rajshekar said the newly drafted rules benefit only those who have committed big violations and that many existing rules of Akrama Sakrama are unscientific.

AKRAMA – SAKRAMA UPDATE – ALL THE WRIT PETITIONS DISMISSED – BUT CAN QUESTION THE LEGALITY OF THE NEW SCHEME


The High Court of Karnataka on Tuesday dismissed a batch of petitions, which had questioned the rules framed in 2007 for regularising unauthorised constructions and developments under the scheme popularly called Akrama-Sakrama.

A Division Bench comprising Chief Justice D.H. Waghela and Justice Ashok B. Hinchigeri passed the order as these petitions had become infructuous as the State government in 2014 framed new rules by repealing the 2007 rules.

The Bench reserved the liberty of the petitioners to question the legality of the newly framed Akrama-Sakrama scheme, the Karnataka Town and Country Planning (Regularisation of unauthorised development or constructions) Rules 2013.

THIS IS A NEVER ENDING STORY
