AKRAMA -SAKRAMA – CITIZEN`S FORUM TO FILE WRIT PETITION IN THE COURT – LATEST UPDATE
A PRESS REPORT-
A brainstorming session on Akrama Sakrama on Sunday concluded that the scheme not only equates major violations with minor infractions but also regularizes the same, by forcing residents to live with them. The interaction was organized by the Citizens’ Ac tion Forum (CAF), which announced that it will file a PIL against the scheme.
“If my neighbour violates the rules and constructs a five-storey house, I may not have a problem with it. But if someone sets up a big commercial establishment in the middle of a residential area, it will create problems to many residents,“ Vijay Me non of the CAF said, ruing that the scheme will force citizens to bear and live with all the inconveniences caused by the violations.
CAF president DS Rajshekar said the newly drafted rules benefit only those who have committed big violations and that many existing rules of Akrama Sakrama are unscientific.
