The recent order of the NGT regarding the pollution of the Bellandur and Agara Lake and the observation made in the order has left the BBMP and the BDA in a state of dizzy.
The NGT Slapped a massive fine/penalty on both the Government and the BBMP for Non-Compliance.
The effects of the observations and the orders of the NGT will have severe ramifications on the layouts, sites, buildings, roads, industries and apartments abutting the lakes and raja kalve.
The Buffer Zone as observed by the NGT in its latest order baffles the builders and the land owners. The existing buildings or apartments or constructions across or abutting the lakes, primary channel, secondary channel and territory channels are badly impacted.
Those(buyers and investors) with the simple knowledge and common-sense may not even dream of buying such properties.
Apartments and sites in and around lakes, raja kalve, secondary and territory channel are being put on SALE by the builders and owners through agents and internet marketing portals at attractive or lesser prices.
Few apartment complexes, which is incomplete and still being constructed are under the ambit of the directives of the NGT and the builders and owners are fleecing the buyers to enter into sale agreement and suck the money from these eccentric buyers.
When the question of NGT directives are raised, they have a standby answer. “We have challenged it and will get relief soon”. THIS IS FREE BALAJI DARSHAN GIFT FROM THEM. The buyers money is GONE and additional benefit offered by these sellers/owners/agents/builders is the LIFE LONG LITIGATION.
One such builder has stated that the plan has been approved by BDA and so everything, BDA has sanctioned or approved is right.
NO. THIS IS WRONG.
The builder will never get the Occupancy Certificate and if the sanction is questioned, all the approvals from KSPCB, BESCOM, AAI, Fire and Emergency Services might be withdrawn or gets automatically cancelled. BEWARE AND BE ALERT.
Now, it is mandatory for all the planning authorities and municipal corporations to comply with the directives of the NGT regarding the buffer zone. The State Government and the Town Planning department does not have any power to modify or change the buffer zone size or extent.
