PROPERTY LOST/DEMOLISHED IN THE LAKE BED, GOMALA, CIVIC AMENITY SITES, GUNDU THOPU, BDA, KIADB LAND AND OTHER ENCROACHEMENTS SOLD BY LAND MAFIA AND DEVELOPERS = THE LOOSERS/PROPERTY(PRESENT) OWNERS OF THE PROPERTY CAN SUE THE SELLERS/BUILDERS AND RECOVER THE AMOUNT ALONG WITH DAMAGES AND COMPENSATION


HAVE YOU BOUGHT A PROPERTY, WHICH IS TERMED AS ILLEGAL OR IRREGULAR OR SOLD WITH FAKE OR FABRICATED DOCUMENTS OR CLOSE TO RAJA KALUVE OR LAKE?

DO NOT LOOSE HOPE.  THE OWNERS, IF ALL OTHER THINGS ARE GOOD, CAN FIGHT AND INITIATE ACTION AND RECOVER THE LOSS, BASED ON THE DOCUMENTS ON WHICH IT IS BOUGHT. 

YES. YOU CAN FIGHT.  YOU CAN, DEFINITELY TAKE ACTION AGAINST YOUR SELLER. BOTH CRIMINAL AND CIVIL SUITS CAN BE INSTITUTED, SUBJECT TO THE THOROUGH EXAMINATION AND INVESTIGATION OF TITLE DEEDS, APPROVALS AND KATHAS.

BEFORE EMBARKING UPON SUCH EXPENSIVE, TIME CONSUMING, SENSITIVE ISSUE AND FILING OF THE SUIT, ALL THE DETAILS AND DOCUMENTS MUST BE THOROUGHLY VERIFIED AND CHECKED FOR ITS AUTHENTICITY AND GENUINENESS. AN INVESTIGATION ABOUT THE SELLER/PREDECESSOR OF THE PROPERTY AND HIS CURRENT POSITION AND HIS OTHER PROPERTIES AND ACTIVITIES ARE A MUST.

INITIATE APPROPRIATE PROCEEDINGS IMMEDIATELY UPON THE SELLER, THEIR COMPANY, TOWN PLANNING OFFICIALS AND  REVENUE OFFICIALS WITH THOROUGH UNDERSTANDING OF THE KARNATAKA LAND REVENUE ACT, KARNATAKA LAND REFORMS ACT, KARNATAKA MUNICIPAL ACT AND KARNATAKA TOWN AND COUNTRY PLANNING ACT ALONG WITH APPROPRIATE AND SUSTAINABLE PROVISIONS OF IPC AND CPC.

THE LOOSERS CAN DEFINITELY INITIATE ACTION, HAD THERE BEEN MISREPRESENTATION OF FACTS, FAKE DOCUMENTS, FABRICATED DOCUMENTS, INDEMNITY CLAUSE IN THE ABSOLUTE SALE DEED, NON COMPLIANCE OF CONDITIONS LAID DOWN IN THE APPROVALS, PROVIDED HAVE SUFFICIENT FEE PAYING POWER AND TO MEET THE EXPENSES AND FIGHT THE SUIT TILL ITS LOGICAL END.

BUT, IN MOST OF THE CASES OF DC CONVERSION, THE CONDITIONS ARE FLOUTED AND THE BUYERS OR THE OWNERS WILL ALSO BE EFFECTED.  HENCE, A CAREFUL HANDLING OF THE ENTIRE PROCESS IS VERY IMPORTANT.

DEMOLITION, RECOVERY, ENCROACHMENT, A KATHA, B KATHA, E KATHA, NO KATHA ETC


WAY BACK IN 1960`S TO 1980`S, THE PROPERTY PURCHASE WAS USUALLY DONE THROUGH KNOWN PERSONS OR CHANNELS OR NEIGHBOURS AND THERE WAS NOT MUCH OF “HOME LOANS” AT BANGALORE AND DUE TO THE SUDDEN DEVELOPMENT, THE PRICES SPIRALLED AND THE TOUTS STARTED THE MISCHIEF WITH MANIPULATED-FAKE-BOGUS-WRONG REPRESENTATIONS-FACTS OF THE PROPERTY CONCEALED- TO MAKE MORE MONEY.

THE RESULT OF THIS FAKE DOCUMENTATION IS : DEMOLITION & LITIGATION.

IT IS A WELL KNOWN FACT EVEN DURING 1960`S AND 1970`S, THAT NOBODY USE TO BUILD ANYTHING NEAR THE LAKES, UNDER ELECTRICITY LINES,NEAR RAJA KALUVE AND EVEN ON GOVERNMENT PROPERTIES.

THE SPROUTING OF DEVELOPERS AND BUILDERS, LAND MAFIA, TOUTS AND FRAUDSTERS PAVED THE WAY FOR ALL THE ILLEGALITIES.

IN 2012/13, DUE TO ABNORMAL DEMAND `B`KATHA CREATED, MOST OF THE PROPERTIES UNDER THIS CATEGORY HAS ITS OWN FLAWS, THE GOVERNMENT, EVOLVED A FOOLPROOF SYSTEM TO ISSUE `E` KATHA – ELECTRONIC MODE KATHA IN FORM NO.9 AND 11A AS PER THE DIRECTIVES OF HIGH COURT, THUS PUTTING AN END TO THE AGE OLD MANUAL KATHA.

EVEN, KATHA`S ARE NOT FOOLPROOF, AS IT IS ISSUED BY THE REVENUE AUTHORITY, BY SCRUTINISING THE DOCUMENTS SUBMITTED TO THEM AND IN SOME OF THE CASES, FAKE DOCUMENTS, BOGUS DOCUMENTS, FALSE STATEMENTS, CONTENTS TWISTED DOCUMENTS, FABRICATED DOCUMENTS ARE SUBMITTED, WHICH CANNOT BE OR COULD NOT BE VERIFIED NOT AUTHENTICATED AND KATHA IS ISSUED ON THE BASIS OF MISREPRESENTATION OF FACTS.

MANY BUYERS ARE UNDER THE CONCEPT AND IMPRESSION THAT A KATHA DELIVERS THEM GOOD AND MARKETABLE TITLES. IT IS NOT SO. IT HAS TO BE EXAMINED- HOW THE KATHA IS OBTAINED? WHAT ARE THE DOCUMENTS SUBMITTED? WHETHER APPROPRIATE AND APPLICABLE TAXES, CHARGES AND LEVIES ARE PAID OR NOT? WHETHER, ALL STATUTORY REQUIREMENTS ARE COMPLIED WITH IT OR NOT?

IN A CASE, AT BELLANDUR(CLOSE TO RING ROAD), IN A TOP END APARTMENT OF A FAMOUS BUILDER, THE RESIDENTS OR THE OWNERS(PRESENT), NOW, ARE PAYING BETTERMENT CHARGES TO GET THE KATHA OF THE PROPERTIES, AS SOME OF THE BANKS ARE DEMANDING THE KATHA AND SOME ARE IN THE PROCESS OF SALES.  THEY CANNOT WAIT FOR THE BUILDER TO PAY –  ARE IN A HURRTY – FORCED TO SHELL DOWN THEIR MONEY TO GET THE KATHA.

`A` KATHA, EC, BANK LOAN, BESCOM CONNECTION, BWSSB CONNECTION,PAYMENT OF TAXES AND TOP BUILDER`S NAME OR GOODWILL DOES NOT CONFER ANY RIGHT, TITLE AND INTEREST.

SOME OF OUR READERS WERE VERY ANGRY AND VENT OUT THEIR FEELINGS AND VIEWS STATING THAT THEY HAVE REGISTERED SALE DEED, THE TITLES WERE GOOD AND  LEGAL 15 YEARS BACK AND HOW IT IS NOT LEGAL TODAY. IT WAS NEVER LEGAL. EVEN THE SUB-REGISTRAR CANNOT REGISTER SUCH PROPERTIES, WHICH ARE IN REVENUE LANDS. IT IS CRYSTAL CLEAR THAT AGRICULTURE LAND CANNOT BE BIFURCATED AND SOLD AND IT IS ILLEGAL.  EVEN THE DC CONVERTED SITE DOES NOT CONFER ANY RIGHT, TITLE AND INTEREST WITHOUT PROPER APPROVALS FROM THE CONCERNED TOWN PLANNING AUTHORITY.  THE DC CONVERSION ORDERS ISSUED WAY BACK IN 1970`S AND 1980`S HAD CONDITIONS LAID IN ITS ORDERS THAT THE PROPERTIES WHICH ARE CONVERTED MUST OBTAIN CLEARANCE AND APPROVALS FROM THE APPROPRIATE AUTHORITIES AND ONLY AFTER OBTAINING SUCH CLEARANCE AND APPROVALS, THE MARKETABLE TITLES ARE CONFERRED.  THE MOST IMPORTANT CONDITION IN EVERY ORDER IS THAT IN THE EVENT OF “NON-COMPLIANCE” OF ANY OF THE CONDITIONS WILL RESULT IN THE AUTOMATIC CANCELLATION OF DC CONVERSION ORDER AND ACTION WILL BE INITIATED TO DEMOLISH ANY BUILDINGS OR STRUCTURES WHICH HAVE COME UP ON SUCH PROPERTIES AND THE EXPENDITURE INCURRED TOWARDS SUCH DEMOLITION WILL BE RECOVERED FROM THE OWNER AS REVENUE ARREARS.  THE USE OF SUCH LAND REVERT TO THE ORIGINAL USE, IN CASE OF NON-COMPLIANCE OF ANY OF THE CONDITIONS.  THE GOVERNMENT HAS THE POWERS TO DEMOLISH SUCH STRUCTURES WITHOUT INTIMATION.

BUT, THE BUYERS IN A BID TO ACQUIRE THE PROPERTY, HAS MISREPRESENTED THE FACTS BEFORE THE SUB-REGISTRAR AND GET THE DOCUMENTS REGISTERED.  IN THE SAME MANNER, THE KATHA IS ALSO OBTAINED.

NOW THE BUYERS ASK THE QUESTION? HOW DID SUB-REGISTRAR REGISTERED THE DOCUMENT? FACTS ARE TWISTED AND MISREPRESENTED AND THE BUYER/SELLER PAID XXXXX TO THE TOUT/AGENT TO GET THE SALE DEED REGISTERED AND AGAIN GETS THE KATHA IN THE SAME MANNER, GET THE POWER AND WATER CONNECTION AND PAY THE TAXES, FINALLY, WHEN IT IS DEMOLISHED, THE PROPERTY OWNER GRUMBLES AND CRIES.  

TITLES MUST BE CLEAR WITH MARKETABLE TITLES, ALONG WITH AUTHENTIC KATHA AND ALL STATUTORY APPROVALS, LICENSES, CC,OC AND POSSESSION.

IT IS SAD TO NOTE THAT MANY POOR PEOPLE LOST THEIR HOUSES IN THE RECENT DEMOLITION, WERE COMPLAINING THAT THEY HAVE `A` OR `B` KATHA, TAX PAID RECEIPTS, BESCOM CONNECTION, BWSSB CONNECTION AND REGISTERED SALE DEED. 

IT IS VERY SAD THAT THE HOUSES OF POOR ARE DEMOLISHED AND THE RICH GO SCOT FREE WITH LITIGATION FOR COUPLE OF YEARS AND THE NOTORIOUS BUILDER WHO STOLE THE GOVERNMENT LAND AND ROAD IS HAPPILY ROAMING AROUND AND SELLING HIS PROPERTIES.

THE COMMON STATEMENT MADE BY THE TOUTS, AGENTS AND THE BUILDERS IS THAT “THERE IS 90% DEVIATION EVERYWHERE, HAS THE GOVERNMENT GOT THE GUTS TO DEMOLISH? NO CHANCE” YOU CAN HAPPILY BUY AND IF SOMETHING GOES WRONG, WE WILL BE THERE- BUT THE TRUTH IS THAT YOU(THE BUYERS) WILL NOT BE THERE.

HENCE, CONDUCT DUE DILIGENT ENQUIRY AND EXAMINATION INTO ALL THE ASPECTS AND THEN PROCEED TO BUY. NO HURRY. IF YOU HURRY, WORRY WILL TAKE OVER.

SOME ARGUMENTS WITHOUT LEGAL SANCTITY AT THE PLACE OF DEMOLITION


BBMP HAS GIVEN US A KATHA?

HOW CAN BBMP GIVE A KATHA FOR THE ENCROACHED OR GOVERNMENT PROPERTIES?

DOCUMENTS ARE FABRICATED OR FAKE DOCUMENTS SUBMITTED TO THE BBMP AND PAID xxxxx TO GET THE KATHA.  ANY PERMISSION, KATHA, LICENSE, APPROVAL OBTAINED BY SUBMITTING FAKE OR BOGUS OR FABRICATED DOCUMENTS AND IF THE FACTS ARE TWISTED OR MISREPRESENTED, AUTOMATICALLY, WITHOUT NOTICE AND INTIMATION THE KATHA  “STANDS CANCELLED”.  HENCE THIS KATHA HAS TO BE EXAMINED THOROUGHLY AND REVENUE DOCUMENTS ARE SECONDARY TITLE DOCUMENTS, THOUGH, THEY ARE IMPORTANT, DOES NOT CONFER ANY RIGHT, TITLE AND INTEREST. 

BESCOM HAS GIVEN US CONNECTION.

BESCOM IS A MERCHANT ESTABLISHMENT, THOUGH OWNED BY THE GOVERNMENT, IS A SUPPLIER OF ELECTRICITY FOR A TARIFF(PRICE).  THE ELECTRICITY CONNECTION IS PROVIDED BASED ON THE ABOVE STATED KATHA, WHICH IS IRREGULAR OR ILLEGAL, CANNOT CONFER ANY RIGHT, TITLE AND INTEREST. HENCE THIS AVERMENT DOES NOT STAND THE LEGAL VALIDATION.

BWSSB- CAUVERY WATER CONNECTION – IS ALSO A PUBLIC UTILITY AND A PROVIDER OF WATER FOR A TARIFF AND ANY CONNECTION OR SUPPLY DOES NOT ENTITLE THE PRECIPITANT ANY RIGHT, TITLE AND INTEREST.

KATHA MUST HAVE BEEN OBTAINED ON AUTHENTIC AND GENUINE DOCUMENTS WITHOUT CONTRADICTING ANY PROVISIONS OF THE APPLICABLE LAW, LIKE KARNATAKA MUNICIPALITY ACT, KARNATAKA LAND REVENUE ACT, KTCP ACT, KARNATAKA LAND REFORMS ACT, RDPR ACT, BDA/BMRDA ACT AND OTHER APPLICABLE AND RELEVANT ACTS. 

HENCE, A THOROUGH EXAMINATION OF KATHA AND HOW IT IS OBTAINED AND THE BASIS ON WHICH IT IS OBTAINED IS ALSO CRUCIAL TO VALIDATE THE TITLES.

RECOVERY OF GOVERNMENT LANDS IN BANGALORE EAST MAY BEGIN SOON


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.

KATHA CERTIFICATE AND KATHA EXTRACT IN THE MUNICIPAL/REVENUE RECORDS


KATHA CERTIFICATE AND KATHA EXTRACT ARE SECONDARY DOCUMENTS SIGNIFYING THE EXISTANCE OF THE PROPERTY WITHIN THE JURISDICTION OF THE ISSUING AUTHORITY AND SOME DETAILS REGARDING THE PROPERTY STATED IN THE CERTIFICATE.

THOUGH THE DOCUMENTS ARE VERY IMPORTANT, THE MOST SIGNIFICANT FACTOR, WHICH IS THE PIVOTAL POINT IN THESE DOCUMENTS IS THE DECLARATION/SUBMISSION/DOCUMENTS/DEEDS PRESENTED TO OBTAIN IT.

IF THERE IS ANY MISREPRESENTATION OF FACTS OR FABRICATED DOCUMENTS SUBMITTED OR FALSE STATEMENTS ARE GIVEN, THE KATHA CERTIFICATE AND THE KATHA EXTRACT STANDS AUTOMATICALLY CANCELLED.

HENCE, A THOROUGH EXAMINATION INTO THE INPUTS ACQUIRES SIGNIFICANCE.

GOVERNMENT LAND ILLEGAL OCCUPATION AND TAMPERED AND FABRICATED DOCUMENTS


THE LATEST SCAM IS NOTHING NEW.  THIS FORGERY, TAMPERING, FABRICATION AND FRAUD WAS/IS GOING ON AND THE A.T.RAMASWAMY COMMITTEE AND THE SPECIAL TASK FORCE UNDER THE STEWARDSHIP OF MR.BALASUBRAMANIAN., I.A.S.(RETD) HAS UNEARTHED MANY SUCH PROPERTIES WITH TAMPERED DOCUMENTS, WHICH HAD BEEN REGRANTED AND GIVEN POSSESSION UNDER 136 OF KLR ACT.  IT IS QUITE ALARMING THAT SUCH PROPERTIES ARE BEING TRADED IN THE MARKET AND GULLIBLE INVESTORS ARE FALLING PREY FOR SUCH PROPERTIES, BEING TEMPTED WITH THE PRICE OFFERED.
