THE DISTRICT ADMINISTRATION HAS DEMOLISHED Hundreds of commercial complexes, petrol pump and multi-storeyed buildings in Banaswadi on Saturday, as part of an anti-encroachment drive by district administration at the Banaswadi lake bed.
Over 300 policemen were deputed in and around the lake bed to ensure law and order. Over half a dozen earth-movers bulldozed the structures amidst a protest by residents.
IT IS WIDELY EXPECTED THAT THE SPECIAL DEPUTY COMMISSIONER WILL RECOVER A VERY HIGHLY VALUABLE PROPERTY IN BANGALORE EAST (VARTHUR-WHITEFIELD-RAMAGONDANAHALLY-KADUGODI) VERY SOON. ILLEGAL OCCUPANTS WHO HAD WAGED IRRELEVANT LITIGATION TO LOOT THE GOVERNMENT/PUBLIC PROPERTY HAVE TO VACATE NOW. THE LOCAL PEOPLE ARE ALSO AGAINST THESE ILLEGAL LAYOUTS AND WANTED THAT THE GOVERNMENT RECOVER IT.
THE TIME HAS COME AND THE FRIVOLOUS LITIGATION BASED ON “NO EXISTING OFFICIAL DOCUMENTS” WILL HAVE TO GO AND GO FOREVER.
THE LAND ENCROACHMENT BY LAND SHARKS AND ROGUE DEVELOPERS HAS BEEN DETECTED AND HUGE SECTORS OF LAND REPOSSESSED OR TAKEN OVER BY THE GOVERNMENT AND THE CONFIDENCE GROUP, WHICH WAS EARLIER SUSPECTED TO BE ONE OF THE ENCROACHER HAS TURNED OUT TO BE TRUE.
AS USUAL, THE DC ISSUED THE NOTICE OF EVICTION, AND AS USUAL, THE DEVELOPER GOT THE NOTICE ISSUED TO THE DC AND THE DC OBTAINED AN INTERIM STAY AND THIS WILL GO ON AND ON AND ON. THE AFFECTED PURCHASERS WILL HAVE TO LISTEN TO THE MARKETING TALK OF THE `MBA` LITERATES AND THEIR MONEY IS LOST OR GONE !!
BY THE END OF THIS WEEK, IT IS LEARNT FROM THE RELIABLE SOURCES THAT OVER FEW HUNDRED SITES FORMED OR DEVELOPED IN GOVERNMENT LAND HAD BEEN REPOSSESSED BY THE GOVERNMENT. MAJORITY OF THE PURCHASERS ARE NOT EVEN AWARE THAT THEIR SITES (ILLEGALLY BOUGHT) HAS BEEN LOST.
SOME OF THE ARGUMENTS ARE:
WE HAVE A KATHA,(WHOSE PROPERTY?)
WE HAVE PAID TAXES ( PAYMENT OF TAXES DOES NOT CONFER ANY RIGHT, TITLE AND INTEREST)
WE HAVE POWER CONNECTION ( POWER SUPPLIER IS A COMPANY AND SUPPLIES POWER ON A CONTRACT OR AGREEMENT AND THE POWER SUPPLY COMPANY CANNOT GRANT OWNERSHIP OF THE PROPERTY)
WE HAVE ROADS AND STREET LIGHTS (OUT OF COURTESY OR BY MISREPRESENTATION OF FACTS- ROADS ARE LAID)
THAT MLA, MP AND MINISTER PROMISE OR OPENED THE LAYOUT, HENCE IT IS LEGAL!!! JOKE OF THIS CENTURY!!!!!
NONE OF THESE ARGUMENTS WILL HOLD GOOD IN THE COURT OF LAW.
A LOOOSING BATTLE WHICH WILL PINCH THE PURSE AND HEALTH OF THE PERSON IS THE NET RESULT OF BUYING PROPERTIES WITHOUT DILIGENT ENQUIRY. EVEN THE ENQUIRY MUST BE CONDUCTED THOROUGHLY WITH AN EXPERT PROFESSIONAL AND NOT WITH ANY TOM, DICK AND HARRY.
Generally the lands available in Karnataka are basically agriculture in nature, as the major occupation is agriculture and the Government has taken various measures to secure & preserve it. The general use of all such lands is agriculture and if it has to be used for any other purpose other than agriculture, the property owner must obtain legal permission from the competent authority by following prescribed procedures.
Conversion is a legal process by which the property owner changes the use of the land from agriculture to non agriculture purpose. It is also called CHANGE OF LAND USE. The legal sanction/ conversion/ order/grant/permission is necessary to use the land for any other purpose otherwise, the Deputy Commissioner will initiate action and in sub-section (2-A) shall be liable to be demolished and brought back to their earlier use and expenses incurred thereon shall be collected from such persons/s as arrears of land revenue.
Change of land use or Conversion is not accorded or permitted to all the properties. Permission for the change of land use or diversion may be deferred or refused by the Deputy Commissioner under various conditions. The DC Conversion may also be withdrawn or canceled.
DC Conversion is a legal process and is mandatory Under Section 95 of Karnataka Land Revenue Act, by which the occupant or the property owner makes an application to the Deputy Commissioner of the District seeking his assent/permission/sanction for the change of land use from agriculture to non-agriculture(Residential/Public Use/Semi Public Use/Industrial/Commercial) use. The Jurisdictional revenue authority will consider the application on the basis of rules and regulation formulated for this purpose and accordingly an order may be issued. The Conversion fee/fine is levied and an official memorandum (OM) is issued to the applicant, directing the applicant to pay the same in the state treasury. Upon the confirmation of such payment, the Deputy Commissioner will issue Conversion Order. The Conversion order will have certain important conditions. The Occupant or the owner must comply with all the conditions laid down in the conversion order, lest, the order becomes invalid or inoperational without any further notice to the applicant or the owner.
