ENCROACHMENTS IN BANGALORE SOUTH WILL BE CLEARED IN WAR FOOTING -CHIEF MINISTER


The Chief Minister has directed the district administration and the BBMP to clear the encroachment of Raja Kaluve, Secondary Channels and the lake bed buffer zone encroachments in Bangalore south and also in other zones without any mercy.  The illlegal and DC Converted layouts and Revenue lay outs will be affected.

It is to be noted that many notorious builders have downsized the raja kaluve and have put up structures and are using it as park and for parking.  The matter has also been looked into and all such constructions and structures must be removed and criminal action must be initiated against such builders.

The NGT order on the Buffer Zone will have a serious impact on the projects which had been completed and which are under construction, but now now.

The buyers must conduct due diligence, while buying properties which are close to lakes or which are within the periphery of the Raja Kaluve and Lakes as during the course of reconstruction ( as most of these structures cannot stand for more than 30 to 50 years) the UDS and the SBA goes down substantially and the occupiers of such flats will be severely affected.

Some builders, resellers, agents, marketing firms and brokers are marketing/selling such projects or properties stating that the properties/projects are approved by BANKS and they have registered many such properties.

Bank loan does not CONFER ANY RIGHT, TITLE AND INTEREST AND REGISTRATION OF SUCH PROPERTIES IN CONTRAVENTION TO THE ORDERS OF THE COURTS AND THE PREVAILING LAWS ARE NOT VALID.

Banks, hand in glove ( What else ?) approve the projects, if the buyer or the owner is dispossessed of his property due to defective title or discrepancy or violation or deviation, the BANKS will not waive the loan.  The Banks recover their monies from the borrower at any cost, either from the borrower or from the co-applicant or from the guarantor or by attaching the salaries of all the concerned or by attaching the bank accounts and other properties of the borrower, co – application and the guarantor.

SET BACKS AND THE BUFFER ZONE IN AND AROUND RAJA KALUVE AND LAKES – GOVERNMENT DIRECTIONS IN KARNATAKA


BUFFER ZONE-GOVT DIRECTIONS-A NEWS REPORT

With the implementation of the National Green Tribunal’s landmark judgement against the Mantri Techzone Private Limited and Coremind Software and Services Private Limited to follow the 75-metre buffer zone for lakes and wetlands, the government has cracked the whip on builders. The government has asked two civic agencies – Bruhat Bengaluru Mahangara Palike and Bangalore Development Authority – to implement the orders with immediate effect.

While the new orders will not affect ongoing projects, BBMP and BDA have been asked to obtain legal opinion on the status of approved projects within 75 metres of waterbodies that are yet to take up construction activity.

Though the government does not have any specific numbers of such projects that come in the 75-metre buffer zone, it has asked engineers from both the departments to conduct a fresh survey and mark boundaries of the buffer zone.

Additional chief secretary Mahendra Jain (urban development department) issued an order on May 17 asking BDA, BBMP and the district administration to coordinate with each other and mark boundaries of all storm water drains (SWD), lakes and rajakaluves. He also directed officials not to issue plans or change of land-use or any kind of developmental activity in buffer zone.

Sri.Mahendra Jain said, “The NGT order has to be implemented strictly in Bengaluru. The order will prospectively affect only projects that will now come up. It will not apply to earlier approved plans or buildings that are already in place.” “As far as buildings that have been built with approved plans within 75 metres of SWDs lakes or rajakaluvas, the ambit order of NGT will not affect them. In cases of plans being approved but the actual projects not yet coming in place, legal opinion needs to be taken. In such cases, BBMP and BDA will examine it legally and take a decision case wise,” he added.

According to NGT orders, buffer zones of rajakaluves, drains and wetlands must be calculated from the edge of the drain, as opposed to the current norm of measuring from the centre of the drain.

The orders will hence, disallow any further construction at least 75 metres from a lake and 50 metres around a primary SWD. Earlier, officials were following a 30-metre buffer zone order, calculated from the centre of the drain.

WHAT BBMP AND BDA NEED TO FOLLOW

» In the case of lakes and wetlands, 75 m, from the periphery of the waterbody will be maintained as a green belt or buffer zone

» 50m from the edge of a primary rajakaluve

» 35m from the edge of a secondary rajakaluve

» 25m from the edge of tertiary rajakaluve

Bangalore District Administration recovers encroached lands


Continuing its drive to recover the Government Lands, the District Administration has recovered lands worth over Rs.1,600 Crores in Bangalore District, which includes an apartment complex at Hulimavu.

On the otherhand the BDA has also initiated the recovery proceedings and issued notices in several parts of Bangalore.

Contempt of court proceedings initiated against the BDA due to its failure to safeguard the recovered govt lands  and preventing the construction and rebuilding of the demolished and recovered lands at Sarakki-Puttenahally lake, in Bangalore South.

 

SARAKKI LAKE LAND RECOVERY – SOME FACTS -HOME LOANS – HOME GONE – LOAN REMAINS


THE SARAKKI, JARAGANAHALLY AND PUTTENAHALLY WERE UNDER GRAMAPANCHAYAT EARLIER AND THEN TRANSFERRED TO CMC AND LATER TO BBMP.

DURING THE GRAMAPANCHAYAT AND CMC TENURE, LAND MAFIA BIFURCATED AGRICULTURAL LANDS SURROUNDING THE LAKE AND REGISTERED THE PROPERTIES WITH KANESHMARI NUMBER AND DIFFERENT SURVEY NUMBER, OTHER THAN THE REAL AND TRUE (LAKE SURVEY NUMBER) TO THE BUYERS.  

THE BUILDERS, KNOWINGLY WELL, BUILT AND SOLD THE APARTMENTS WITH 200% VIOLATION AND DEVIATION IN THE NAME OF LAKEVIEW.

THE APARTMENT BUYERS STATE THAT THEY HAVE HOME LOANS ON THEIR PROPERTIES, WHERE THERE IS NO HOME, ONLY THE LOAN REMAINS.  THEY WILL HAVE TO REPAY THE LOAN, IRRESPECTIVE OF THEIR OF LOSS OF HOME.

POLITICIANS AND LAND MAFIA ALONG WITH THE OFFICIALS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THIS “FRAUD” AND THE BUYERS ARE EQUALLY RESPONSIBLE, DUE TO THEIR FOOLISH ATTITUDE.  HAD THEY CONDUCTED AN ENQUIRY INTO THE TITLES, THEY WOULD NOT HAVE LANDED IN THIS MISERY.
