The State Government may approach the Supreme Court of India with an interim application to revoke the Stay on the AKRAMA – SAKRAMA Scheme, next week.  If the court VACATES the Stay order, Then the Government may go forward in implementing the scheme.

WRONG NOTIONS AND IDEAS ABOUT THE AKRAMA SCHEME


It is widely believed that AKRAMA – SAKRAMA will clean the mess or will regularise all the illegal properties or illegal acts.

NO.

Properties which fall into the specific categories will be subjected to the regularisation.

ALL ILLEGAL, IRREGULAR, VIOLATIONS & DEVIATIONS cannot be regularised.  Even with the connivance of the officials, if any such act is done, the property buyer/owner will lose the money and such illegal regularisation stands cancelled automatically.

DO NOT PAY MONEY TO TOUTS, AGENTS AND BROKERS FOR THE PROPERTIES WHICH CANNOT BE REGULARISED.

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.

View Point of Mr.Aswin Mahesh, an urban expert on the latest Amendment to the KTCP ACT. A Press Report.


Akrama Sakrama is a complete fraud, but that hasn’t stopped state governments — of different parties — from trying to get it passed into a law. Now the latest attempt to push it through is being made. But we should have no doubt that it will greatly harm our cities, and worsen an already entrenched culture of corruption in public administration.

There are many things wrong with this scheme. While regularization may be unavoidable, given the scale of what has happened so far, if it’s not done right even now, that’ll be an open invitation to let things carry on as they are in future too. Let us look at the many points of failure in what is being proposed.

The proposal doesn’t include any penalty for officials who connived in the illegalities. In fact, they have not even been identified.

There is virtually no transparency. Which are the properties to be regularized, and to what extent? Let the government put up that list first.

It doesn’t require the consent of neighbours to regularize violations. The state is giving a free pass to people whose violations hurt their neighbours’ quality of life, as though it were the affected party.

It doesn’t have any roadmap for stopping the violations in future. In fact, since the time Akrama Sakrama was first proposed in 2004, the government hasn’t even moved a finger in this direction.

It ignores the fact that existing provisions of the Karnataka Town and Country Planning Act can deal with most violations, and this law is actually not needed at all.

In the case of Bangalore, having notified a Metropolitan Planning Committee recently, the state government no longer has any role in city planning.

No one seems to care that after regularization, unplanned neighbourhoods will be just as bad as they are now.

It is not clear what happens to people who don’t come forward to declare their violations, or those whose violations are in excess of the regularizable limit; i.e., the worst offenders are not tackled.

Let us also understand why this legislation is moving forward, despite all these. The correct way to fix the broken system — through new town planning schemes, transparently, with neighbours’ consent, etc. — requires hard work, patience and diligence over years. Not wanting to do this, the government is giving itself a free pass, and hoping that enough citizens will support it for their own private benefit, despite all the tragedies it will vest upon our cities.

OUR VIEWS-——————————————————————————————————————————————————–

LEGITIMATE AND LOGICAL OBJECTIONS HAVE BEEN RAISED AGAINST THIS SCHEME AND SUBMITTED TO THE AUTHORITIES AT THE URBAN DEVELOPMENT DEPARTMENT, BUT AS USUAL, WILL BE REJECTED OR NO ACTION WILL BE TAKEN TO REDRESS IT NOR THESE OBJECTIONS WILL BE IGNORED.

IT IS FELT, THAT `STAY ORDER` MIGHT BE VERY DIFFICULT TO GET VACATED AS IMPORTANT ISSUES HAVE NOT BEEN PROPERLY ADDRESSED IN THE AMENDMENT AS IT CONTAINS BLACK LOOPHOLES. 

AKRAMA – SAKRAMA – RULES ARE OUT ? UPDATE – ONE YEAR LIFETIME TO SUBMIT THE APPLICATIONS


AKRAMA – SAKRAMA RULES, REGULATIONS AND PROCEDURES ARE OUT – SUBMIT OBJECTIONS, SUGGESTIONS AND RECOMMENDATIONS NOW? DEVIATIONS, VIOLATIONS, REVENUE SITES, REVENUE LAYOUTS, DC CONVERTED SITES, BUILDINGS WITHOUT APPROVED PLANS AND ILLEGAL AND UNAUTHORISED LAYOUTS COULD BE REGULARISED.

 

LAW ABIDING CITIZENS, RESIDENTS WELFARE ASSOCIATIONS AND ORGANISATION CAN SUBMIT THEIR OBJECTIONS, SUGGESTIONS AND RECOMMENDATION S TO THE FOLLOWING ADDRESS: 

TO:

THE PRINCIPAL SECRETARY, URBAN DEVELOPMENT DEPARTMENT, VIKASA SOUDHA, BANGALORE-560 001.

The Karnataka Town and Country Planning (Regulation of unauthorised development or construction) Act, duration of the scheme has been extended from three months to one year.

The government has fixed October 19, 2013, as the cutoff date for unauthorised properties eligible for regularisation.

Under the scheme,

a). violations pertaining to setback,

b). Floor Area Ratio (FAR),

c). non-conversion of agricultural land and

d). formation of unauthorised layouts and sites under urban local bodies, including Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP), are liable for waiver. 

But implementation of the scheme is subject to the Karnataka High Court permission. The court has directed the government to maintain status quo with regard to implementation of the scheme. Till date the Government has not filed any affidavit in the court regarding the amendment. Even this may be challenged.

Under the new rules, processing applications and passing regularisation orders will be issued by the competent authorities (commissioners of ULBs) have been empowered.

The new rules define unauthorised properties, bringing in greater clarity.

Fee structure

Under the new rules, up to 25 pc violation in residential buildings will attract a fee of 6 pc of the total guidance value of the property (either land or built-up area) and 8 per cent between 25 and 50 per cent. For non-residential buildings, regularisation charges will be 20 per cent of the guidance value for less than 12.5 per cent violation; 35 per cent for up to 25 per cent.

Scrutiny fee at the rate of Re 1 for every square meter of the total plot area in case of plots in unauthorised layouts and Rs 2 per sq m of total floor area of building will be collected.
