The Karnataka Town and Country Planning (Regulation of unauthorised development or construction) Act, duration of the scheme has been extended from three months to one year.
The government has fixed October 19, 2013, as the cutoff date for unauthorised properties eligible for regularisation.
Under the scheme,
a). violations pertaining to setback,
b). Floor Area Ratio (FAR),
c). non-conversion of agricultural land and
d). formation of unauthorised layouts and sites under urban local bodies, including Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP), are liable for waiver.
But implementation of the scheme is subject to the Karnataka High Court permission. The court has directed the government to maintain status quo with regard to implementation of the scheme. Till date the Government has not filed any affidavit in the court regarding the amendment. Even this may be challenged.
Under the new rules, processing applications and passing regularisation orders will be issued by the competent authorities (commissioners of ULBs) have been empowered.
The new rules define unauthorised properties, bringing in greater clarity.
Under the new rules, up to 25 pc violation in residential buildings will attract a fee of 6 pc of the total guidance value of the property (either land or built-up area) and 8 per cent between 25 and 50 per cent. For non-residential buildings, regularisation charges will be 20 per cent of the guidance value for less than 12.5 per cent violation; 35 per cent for up to 25 per cent.
Scrutiny fee at the rate of Re 1 for every square meter of the total plot area in case of plots in unauthorised layouts and Rs 2 per sq m of total floor area of building will be collected.
