AKRAMA – SAKRAMA ADJOURNED TO 19-09-2016


The regularisation of unauthorised buildings and layouts scheme, called AKRAMA SAKRAMA, has been posted for final hearing on 19-09-2016.

The amendment must deal with the NGT order and the present scenario with care and come out with a proper direction to the Government with a mechanism to avoid the future irregularities.

In the meanwhile the High Court of Karnataka has DECLINED to entertain a plaint seeking A STAY for the present clearing of ENCROACHMENTS across Bangalore.  It is a setback for the property owners.

The State Government has finally decided to take action against the officials who had issued or sanctioned the building plans on Raja Kaluve.

The property owners, who have lost their properties may initiate legal proceedings against the officials, who had sanctioned the building plan.

The property owners can initiate appropriate legal proceedings against the sellers of such properties to recover their monies, if possible.

OCCUPANCY CERTIFICATE – BBMP – 2016-17 -TILL DATE


The BBMP has issued only 13 Occupancy Certificates in 2016-17, of which 3 are commercial projects and 10 are residential apartments.

There are few hundred projects which had been completed and few hundred housing apartment projects are underway, but only few builders and the apartments have the MANDATORY OCCUPANCY CERTIFICATE.

Between 2011-12 to 20161-7, the BBMP has issued around 300+ Occupancy Certificates and the remaining buildings or projects or apartments DOES NOT HAVE MANDATORY OCCUPANCY CERTIFICATE, it means, that buildings or apartments or projects are NOT WORTH BUYING OR OCCUPYING.

The recent floods and the havoc caused by the rains is MAN MADE.  In one of the flood affected areas, the road width is 30 feet and there were several apartment complexes having more than 20+ apartments and the entire narrow road, in bangalore south, J.P.Nagar, has about 400 to 500 apartments, NONE OF THE BUILDINGS HAVE OCCUPANCY CERTIFICATE AND HAS NOT BEEN CONSTRUCTED AS PER THE SANCTIONED BUILDING PLAN AND THEY ARE ILLEGAL, IRREGUALR AND UNAUTHORISED.

FIRE AT BRAND FACTORY AT MARUTHALLI, BANGALORE


The fire gutted the entire store of over 5 floors.

The issues:

1). Deviation and violation.

Not constructed as per the sanctioned building plan.

2). Deliberate Non-Compliance of Fire and Emergency safety precautions.

The building owner has not constructed the building with safety measures, as it was past midnight, no casualties reported.

3). As it was a irregular and dangerous construction, the building did not have CC and OC.

The tenant or the lessee was not at all bothered about the sanctioned building plan nor bothered about the CC and OC resulting in the fire.

4). Insurance Claims.

Naturally, it will be repudiated or rejected, because of the Non-Compliance of the building by laws and the provisions of the Indian Electricity Act.

 DNA newspaper.12.7.2012in NAVI MUMBAI

 

Two separate cases of fraud and cheating have been registered in Navi Mumbai against a group of builders and government officials on the directions of the high court.

The order came after Navi Mumbai residents Sunil Kumar Lahoriya and Pramod Mittal moved a writ petition in the court.

 

In the first case, Lahoriya moved a criminal writ petition against builders and NMMC officials on the ‘illegal  petition asked permission to file an FIR in the case and the court directed the local police station to register a complaint. According to the complainant, the builders of Vignahar CHS had two structural plans for the building of which one was approved by NMMC,but the building was constructed as per the other plan.

Lahoriya bought a flat in the building and since no society had been formed, he was authorised by other members to sue the builder on their behalf. Lahoriya’s advocate said his client obtained the original plan of the building using RTI and came to know that it was not what had been promised in the brochure.

 

In the Vignahar CHS matter, a case was registered with Nerul police station under sections 406, 420, 467,468, 471, 409 and 34 of the IPC against builders Vijay Gajra, Lada Ravariya, Dinesh Patel, Verasi Dama,Govind Varchand, Keshavji Gala, architect Anurag Garg and his wife from Dimensions Ltd,

structural engineer AG Gokhale and NMMC officials Umesh Patil, Dilip Kulkarni, Sanjay Banait and others.

In all, 12 people were identified as accused.

In another case, Pramod Mittal moved a criminal writ against the builders of Green Heritage building at sector 20, Kharghar, and other government officials attached to Cidco,MSEDC and the crime branch, seeking permission to register a FIR. Kharghar police registered the complaint against 36 people in accordance with a direction from the court.According to the complainant, the builders of Green Heritage building gave possession to its residents without getting an occupancy certificate (OC). Cidco provided water to the building without verifying the documents and MSEDC provided an electricity connection.

Even though Cidco and MSEDC sent the builder a notice to submit the OC in October, they failed to take action against him, the complainant said. “When my client approached the crime branch, the DCP tried to suppress the case. He held back the case and got involved with the builders of Green Heritage. So we have made the officer and other government officials co-accused in the case,” Mittal’s advocate said. The case has been registered against Vijay Gajra, Dinesh Patel, Gangaji Bhanushali, Sunil Gala, Sohail Gala, Karman Patel and other partners in the Green Heritage project including Vasant Bhanushali, TP Rana, Jumma Khumbhar, architect Anurag Garg and his wife, RCC consultant AG.
