BBMP has proposed to levy (penalty) of 50% of the property tax for the unauthorised structures


The BBMP has finally woken up to initiate the penal proceedings against illegal and unauthorised construction or deviation or violation of the building by-laws, by levying 50% penalty of the existing property taxes on the owners and make the concerned officials and engineers responsible for illegal, unauthorised constructions, violation and deviation from the sanctioned building plan, to put an end to the illegalities.

It is also found that many of the illegal constructions go unnoticed and if action is initiated against such violations, the violators approach the court and obtain a temporary stay and the BBMP has recommended to the Government to amend KMC Act, that in such a situation, 50% of the value of the property must be deposited with the BBMP as a prelude to approach the court for any relief.

This may act as a deterrent to the illegal constructions.

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.

AKRAMA-SAKRAMA SCHEME MAY BE MODIFIED


THE MUCH AWAITED REGULARISATION SCHEME MIGHT BE REVIEWED AND MODIFIED TO COVER THE ENTIRE SPECTRUM OF DEVIATION, VIOLATION AND IRREGULARITIES UNDER KLR ACT, KMC ACT AND KTCP ACT WITH A VIEW TO SLAP A HEFTY PENALTY, THAT MIGHT DISCOURAGE THE FUTURE VIOLATIONS AND PROVIDE MUCH NEEDED REVENUE TO THE MUNICIPALITIES FOR THE DEVELOPMENT OF INFRASTRUCTURE.
