MANYATA TECH PARK IS IN NEWS AGAIN FOR NON PAYMENT OF TAXES


It has become a fad for the developers and builders for not making (paying)the municipal and other taxes to the local authorities and in one such an instance, the BBMP has issued a notice to the Manyata Tech Park management (managed by a politician in power) to pay the revised taxes and as usual, the said developer refused to pay the taxes, citing so many irrelevant statues and as usual bring in a STAY ORDER.

In the meanwhile, Manyata Group is trying to Sell the lands near Devanahally, (KIADB) acquired for the development of Industry and this might also land up in soup.

In the similar manner another Delhi based developer, famous for all kinds of illegalities on earth, trying to sell lands in and around Nelamangala – Arkavathy belt, by buying the poor farmers land at throwaway prices.  The Farmers have already forwarded their memorandum to the PM.

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.

GOVERNMENT ALL SET TO RECOVER 2.39 ACRES OF PRIME PROPERTY JAYANAGAR 1ST BLOCK, (LAL BAGH SIDDAPURA) NURSERY LAND


IT IS LEARNT THAT CHIEF MINISTER SIDDARAMAIAH HAS DIRECTED THE URBAN DEVELOPMENT DEPARTMENT TO LOOK INTO THE ALLEGED DENOTIFICATION OF 2 ACRES 39 GUNTAS OF PRIME PROPERTY, WHICH WAS LEFT OUT FOR THE NURSERY(PLANT) AT LAL BAGH SIDDAPURA, JAYANAGAR 1ST BLOCK, BANGALORE-560 011, NEAR 5TH CROSS, 5TH MAIN, 1ST BLOCK JAYANAGAR, BANGALORE, ALLEGED TO HAVE BOUGHT BY LAND SHARKS/MAFIA AND BY MISREPRESENTING THE FACTS, OBTAINED DENOTIFICATION OF NURSERY LANDS.

THE LAND MAY BE RECOVERED SOON. THE BUYERS (BENAMI) HAVE LOST FEW CRORES.  

BUYERS OF PROPERTIES ARE TAKEN FOR A RIDE BY BUILDERS/DEVELOPERS/SELLERS


THE BUILDERS/DEVELOPERS/SELLERS HAVE A CLEAR CUT STRATEGY.  IT IS A CLEAR CUT CASE, WHERE THE TITLES ARE DISPUTED OR HAVE DISCREPANCY OR THERE ARE ORIGINAL AND GENUINE CLAIMS AGAINST THE PROPERTY.  THE DEVELOPERS BUY IT OR ENTER INTO A JOINT DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENT KNOWINGLY WELL AND OFFER THESE PROPERTIES AT ATTRACTIVE PRICES AS `PRE LAUNCH OFFER`.

WHEN THE LITIGATION IS BROUGHT TO THE NOTICE OF THE BUYER, THE DEVELOPER NORMALLY AND GENERALLY APPROACHES THE COURT AND GET SOME RELIEF, BUT SUCH RELIEF IS TIME BOUND AND IS VALID TILL THE DISPOSAL OF THE CASE.  BUT THE SHREWD AND NOTORIOUS BUILDER WILL DEFINITELY LOSE THE CASE AND PREFER AN APPEAL AND CONTINUES TO DODGE THE BUYER WITH THIS KIND OF UN DISPOSABLE SUITS AND PROLONG THE SAME.

TOP BUILDERS OF BANGALORE HAVE SEVERAL CASES ON `PRIME PROPERTIES` AND HIDDEN VIOLATIONS OR HAVE OBTAINED BUILDING PLAN APPROVALS IN CONTRAVENTION TO THE PREVAILING LAWS BY MISREPRESENTING THE FACTS.

BEWARE AND DO NOT COMPROMISE ON THE TITLE AND DO NOT BUY PROPERTIES, IF THEY HAVE LITIGATION, EVEN THE BIGGEST OF THE BIGGER DEVELOPER CAN DO `NOTHING` IN THE COURT OF LAW. MANY SUCH CASES ARE PENDING AND ARE AT VARIOUS STAGES IN THE COURTS ACROSS THE COUNTRY.

ILLEGAL AND UNAUTHORISED LAYOUTS IN BANGALORE SOUTH IN DOCKS


AN UNAUTHORISED LAYOUT AND ILLEGAL LAYOUT FORMED IN GREEN BELT WAS ORDERED TO BE DEMOLISHED BY THE THASILDAR, BANGALORE SOUTH WAS STAYED BY THE HIGH COURT OF KARNATAKA, BUT NOT FOR LONG.

A STAY WAS BROUGHT AND THE SITE OWNERS CAN HEAVE A SIGH OF RELIEF BUT THE GOVERNMENT CANNOT REGULARISE IT AND A LONG DRAWN LEGAL BATTLE ENSUE AND THE ILLEGAL SITE OWNERS CAN NEITHER SELL NOR CONSTRUCT NOR MORTGAGE THESE PROPERTIES.

IT IS SAID THAT THERE ARE OVER FEW HUNDRED SUCH ILLEGAL LAYOUTS IN THIS AREA, WHICH DOES NOT HAVE CLEAR TITLES. SOME SITES ARE FORMED IN GOVERNMENT LANDS, BUT THEY HAVE TO GO-GO.  THE LAND MAFIA/ROGUE BUILDERS ARE VERY STRONG IN THIS AREA.

THIS ROGUE BUILDERS AND DEVELOPERS ALSO PROMISE HOME LOANS FROM 00000000000000 FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS AND ALSO REGISTER THESE PROPERTIES (TOTALLY ILLEGAL WITH FAKE DOCUMENTS AND MISREPRESENTATION OF FACTS) WITH THE CONNIVANCE OF THE REVENUE AUTHORITIES AND THE SUB – REGISTRARS.

ONE NOTORIOUS BUILDER HAS OBTAINED A KATHA IN BBMP BY PAYING BETTERMENT CHARGES FOR A NON – EXSISTANT(FAKE DOCUMENT) DOCUMENT AND SELLING THE PROPERTY. THIS BAD COMPANY HAS ALREADY SOLD FEW SITES.

JOINT DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENTS EXECUTED FOR APARTMENTS AND LAYOUTS – UNDER REVISION – STAMPS AND REGISTRATION DEPARTMENT –


THE STAMPS AND REGISTRATION DEPARTMENT HAS DETECTED TAX EVASION IN THE JOINT DEVELOPMENT AGREEMENTS EXECUTED BETWEEN THE LAND LORD AND THE DEVELOPERS AND BUILDERS AND HAS REOPENED THE FILES BY ISSUING NOTICES TO THE CONCERNED LANDLORDS AND THE BUILDERS/DEVELOPERS.

IT IS FELT THAT THE DUTY LIABILITY ALONG WITH THE FINE WILL BE IN TUNE OF CRORES FOR THESE PROJECTS, THE BUYERS MIGHT ALSO FEEL THE HEAT OF THIS INVESTIGATION.

EVEN THOUGH, SOME SUITS ARE BEING CONTESTED IN THE HIGH COURT, BUT NONE OF THEM HAVE REACHED ITS FINALITY AND WITH THE FRESH NOTICES, THE SITUATION FOR THE DEVELOPERS AS WELL AS LAND LORDS APPEAR TO BE VERY GRIM.
