STILL BUYING A `B` KATHA OR AN APARTMENT/BUILDING WITH DEVIATION AND VIOLATION


THE CUT OFF DATE IS 19-11-2013 TO REGULARISE THE UNAUHTORISED LAYOUTS AND BUILDINGS WITH DEVIATION AND VIOLATION.  ANY BUILDING BUILT AFTER 19-11-2013 IS NOT ELIGIBLE TO BE REGULARISED UNDER THE PROVISIONS OF THIS AMENDMENT.

HENCE, CHECK THE DATES, BEFORE BUYING OR PURCHASING THE PROPERTY.

THERE HAVE BEEN INNUMERABLE QUERIES REGARDING THE DATE OF COMPLETION.  THE FINAL DATE OF COMPLETION AND HANDING OVER SHOULD BE 19-11-2013,

IT IS learnt THAT THE SELLERS OF THE PROPERTY  are misleading the purchasers regarding the AKRAMA – SAKRAMA and transacting by promising the purchasers that illegal buildings and sites can be regularised.  Beware.

  1. 1) If BBMP follow the law properly, that will stop all illegal constructions and violations. Dont give OC if there is violations. Dont give electricity and water connections if there is no OC.It is very simple to implement and neighboruing states are doing this way.But the beggar babus don’t want this to be implemented as that will stop bribe.
    2) Karnataka has very old real estate procedure which is out dated.The politicians has no vision to improve the laws. For example in neighbouring states registration of land/building is very simple. In karnataka, after registration we need to get Katha.The Katha is an old tool to make bribe. Katha should be removed and instead while paying the first time tax, the computer system should generate a unique Id which should have all details about that property.

    1. 1). Yes. There is no need to copy the neighbouring states procedures. Existing rules and regulations are enough.
      2). No. Katha is a declaratory secondary title document and cannot be done away with. The buyer must register the transfer in the jurisdictional municipal authority and get it assessed for the tax. It is called PATTA in some other states. Almost all states have this revenue document.

    1. Katha is a secondary title document, a certificate issued by the jurisdictional municipal authority for a property, containing the property details like , the location, size, structures, how the property is assessed to tax and the name of the owner as per the record. It is the duty of the property owner to submit the necessary, legitimate and authentic documents and clarifications in respect of the property to update/register his/her name in the municipal records.

      Tax is collected by the municipal authorities to provide amenities like road, street light, drinking water and clearing the debris/solid waste etc. If the taxes are not paid, how can any organisation manage or provide the facilities? Even after collecting taxes, the municipalities fail to deliver the required services, if the organisation does not have money, then, chaos reign in!!!!

      If the titles are good, complied with statutory requirement and have been constructed as per the sanctioned plan, there is no need to worry. Submit all the title documents, revenue documents, survey documents, all compliance reports and the authorities are bound to issue the katha. There may be some delay, but katha cannot be denied to genuine properties.
