IT IS QUITE COMMON THAT THE ENCROACHER TO SAY THAT THEY HAVE NOT ENCROACHED AND IMMEDIATELY THE LEGAL TEAM APPEARS AND DECLARE THAT THEY HAVE ALL THE DOCUMENTS TO PROVE THAT IT IS THEIR PROPERTY AND THERE IS NO VIOLATION, DEVIATION OR ENCROACHMENT. 

THERE WILL BE A GROUP TO SUPPORT SUCH STATEMENTS.

GENERALLY, THERE IS A BUFFER ZONE OF ABOUT 10 METERS (33FEET APPROXIMATELY) FROM THE LAST POINT OR BOUNDARY OF THE LAKE (THE PERIPHERY). IN CASE OF LAKES WHICH ARE LARGER THAN 30 ACRES OR ABOVE. IF THAT IS TAKEN INTO ACCOUNT, THEN MANY APARTMENTS HAVE TO BE PULLED DOWN.

  1. Dear, Government also need to prove that it is a encroachment. In this particular case Govt has so far not issued any notice or shown the owners any documentation to prove their claim.

    1. YES. The Government must prove with documentary evidence that there is encroachment. Without any documentary evidence, the administration would not have taken this ACTION.
      Notice need not be issued in case of encroachment. Now, the District administration is examining the survey records and will definitely come out with the report. Wait and Watch. Puravanakra is NO SAINT. As there is a criminal case of obstruction, there will be two cases (Criminal and Civil) running simultaneously and all relevant documents to prove it will be furnished. Wait and Watch. Other than the encroachment, other restrictions are as under:
      A). 30 meters from the boundary of Lake- 40 ha. And 10 m. for others.
      B). 9 meters from the boundary of Canal/Rajakaluve.
      C). 3 meters from the boundary of field natural drains as defined in the RS map / top sheets.
      if this is not complied with, action may be taken.
