The State government has appointed H.N. Narayan, retired judge of the High Court of Karnataka, as chairman of the Special Court established for speedy trial of land-grabbing cases and those related to ownership of land and would look into encroachments of both government and forest land by individuals in cities as well as rural areas.
Encroachment, irregularities and illegalities of Many Hi-Fi layouts (Illegal gated communities) and properties will be investigated which had been reported by the Special Task Force.
Citizens with genuine documentary evidence and proof can approach the court regarding the encroachment.
THE GOVERNMENT OF KARNATAKA, THE DEPUTY COMMISSIONERS AND THE THASILDARS ARE RECOVERING THE GOVERNMENT LANDS IN AND AROUND BANGALORE.
IT HAS COME TO THE NOTICE THAT MANY SITES FORMED ILLEGALLY ARE TAKEN BACK AND RECOVERED. THE BUYERS OF PROPERTIES HAVE BBMP KATHA AND PANCHAYAT KATHA, ISSUED ON FAKE AND BOGUS DOCUMENTS. SOME OF THEM HAVE FORMED GROUPS, HAVE APPROACHED THE COURT. THESE LITIGATIONS WILL ONLY MAKE THE PROFESSIONALS, WHO WILL CONTEST IN THE COURT- RICH AND FAT.
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.
The State Government appointed a Legislature Committee to study the land grabbing and encroachment of Government lands in the state and at Bangalore rural and urban districts and the committee submitted startling report that over 20,000 acres of Govt land had been encroached. The Govt formed a SPECIAL TASK FORCE FOR THE RECOVERY OF ENCROACHED LAND, headed by retired IAS officer Mr.V.Balasubramanian to verify and suggest various measures to stop such encroachments and the procedures to recover the same.
Based on the reports of the Joint Legislature Committee and STF reports, the Revenue Department conducted internal investigation and formed 60 teams to detect the encroachments. The team stumbled upon over 428 cases and found that over 2804 acres of Government land had been encroached by fraudsters by fabricating documents. Most of the cases are related to Inamthi lands, grant land and by the orders by the DC (who is under suspension).
The Revenue department has suggested that the lands must be recovered from the mafia, which is worth over few thousand crores and initiate criminal proceedings against the offenders.
Majority of such fake/fabricated documents and properties are found in Bangalore North District, which includes 41 villages, 609 alleged fraudsters and over 1204 acres of land only in VARTHUR,BIDARAHALLY,K.R.PURAM and 840 acres in Bangalore East Taluk.
It is also said that the discovery is just the tip off the iceberg, more land grabbing cases are yet to be detected.
Buyers in these areas are advised caution. Most of the grant lands appear to be Government Lands.
