DEMOLITION – OF ILLEGAL AND IRREGULAR BUILDINGS ACROSS BANGALORE – WILL CONTINUE – EVEN THE RICH AND MIGHTY WILL NOT BE SPARED – – ASHUBH –


Bangalore experiences the DEMOLITION of illegal structures and it is said that the RICH AND MIGHTY have escaped it.  But, they cannot escape, they will be treated badly, much worse than the other.

Cheating, Fraud, Misrepresentation of facts, False documentations, Bogus Claims, Fake Documents, Fabricated documents, Clearances from Govt Departments obtained by misrepresentation and TALL CLAIMS, makes  `BUILDER`.

Whenever there is a serious issue, the developer approaches the COURTS for temporary remedy and the buyer thinks that the temporary remedy is PERMANENT.

Toooooooooooooo many buildings have been built illegally and the sellers are promising the buyers that it can be REGULARISED BY AKRAMA-SAKRAMA, but it is not TRUE, that all the ILLEGAL AND IRREGULAR STRUCTURES AND BUILDINGS CANNOT BE REGULARISED.  

BE CAREFUL.

1 Vote

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 DIRECTED the two civic agencies – Bruhat Bengaluru Mahangara Palike and Bangalore Development Authority – to implement the orders with immediate effect.

The NGT orders will  affect the ongoing projects which are not completed, though it is approved,  projects within 75 metres of waterbodies from the border or the edge or the periphery of the boundary wall.

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.

BDA, BBMP and the district administration to mark boundaries of all storm water drains (SWD), lakes and rajakaluves and have directions not to issue plans or change of land-use or any kind of developmental activity in buffer zone.
The BWSSB has already garnered itself and will be issuing notices to the apartment complexes which have more than 20 apartment to install the SEWAGE TREATMENT PLANTS and discharge the treated (properly treated) sewage to the communal drains.

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 from the boundary wall or the border or the edge of the Lake or Raja kaluve.

Earlier, officials were following a 30-metre buffer zone order, calculated from the centre of the drain.

In the case of lakes  75 meters ( 246 feet )from the periphery of the waterbody will be maintained as a green belt or buffer zone

» 50 meters (164 feet) from the edge of a primary rajakaluve

» 35 meters(115feet)from the edge of a secondary rajakaluve

» 25 meters (82 feet) from the edge of tertiary rajakaluve

NO COMMENCEMENT CERTIFICATE FOR THE BUILDING VIOLATING THE ABOVE DIRECTIONS.

NO OCCUPANCY CERTIFICATE FOR THE BUILDINGS VIOLATING THE ABOVE DIRECTIONS.

NATIONAL GREEN TRIBUNAL (SOUTHERN ZONE) ISSUES NOTICE TO BANGALORE DEVELOPMENT AUTHORITY – SANCTION OF HIGH RISE BUILDING PLAN ON THE LAKE BEDS


The NGT(SZ) has issued notice to BDA to appear before it on 28-01-2016 regarding the sanction of building plans to several builders on the lake beds, valleys and buffer zone.  Sriram Chirping woods and another builder is coming up with thousands of apartments across Kasavanahally lake, haralur lake, kaikondarahally lake, agara lake and few more water bodies in Bangalore East taluk, in Varthur Hobli, Bangalore Urban District.

Several public interest organisation have been submitting their objections to BDA/BBMP/KSPCB and to all the sundry departments regarding the ADVERSE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT and the BDA/BBMP have been sanctioning the plans without bothering about it.  Finally, the NGT AND THE SUPREME COURT OF INDIA stepped in and stopped the construction.  

Few more builders are also fighting the suits in Begur Hobli, Bangalore South Taluk, might have to shelve the projects, which began in 2009.  These builders are fighting various criminal and civil suits.  These projects have destroyed the delicate environment cover to the entire area of Bannergatta road and the surrounding areas.  In these zones, 75% of the buildings have violated even the dangerous building plans sanctioned by over 200%.  The culprits are the builders, officials, owners, local bodies (panchayats). BDA, BBMP, politicians and other government bodies like KSPCB, BESCOM, BWSSB who have deliberately ignored the nature`s law.  Finally, the Banks and the most important are the BUYERS.  Had the buyers, rejected or refused to buy illegal, unauthorised, irregular and dangerous buildings, these builders or developers WOULD NOT HAVE BUILT THESE ILLEGAL BUILDINGS AT ALL.

The buyers blame the Government, but ultimately, they are the sufferers and expect sympathy and regularisation at the cost of the honest tax payer.
