NEW ROAD FROM MYSORE ROAD TO MAGADI ROAD – A BDA PROPOSAL


The Bangalore Development Authority (BDA) has finalised a project to construct a six-lane road which connects Mysuru and Magadi Roads through Kempegowda Layout and is expected to submit the proposal to the State Government soon and  the project might be completed in 18-24 months.

The six-lane road will be constructed from Mysuru Road located at one end of Kempegowda Layout to Magadi road. A portion of the road — around 10.7 km — will be taken up as an arterial road at an estimated cost of Rs 350-370 crore. This road will have two-lane service road on the both sides and around 320 acres of land may be required for the completion of this project.

The proposed road will put a curb on the entry of heavy vehicles into the city.

After the construction of the connecting road, two sides, along the road, will help take up business activities. For the purpose, about 250 acres of land has been identified in five different places. Information technology companies and industrials units will be established under the Public Private Participation (PPP) model.

CAG RAPS BDA ON BUILDING PLAN VIOLATION – CAG REPORT – A Press Report


CAG: BDA overlooked change of land-use plan by developer

The CAG statement comes in the backdrop of BDA’s lapses in sanctioning building plans for Prestige Augusta Golf Village project in Vaderahalli village, east Bengaluru, which involves development of 460 luxury villas and twin houses spread over 104 acres designed around a nine-hole golf course. In its second instalment on the general and social sectors, the CAG report said the project, initiated in 2013, is facing demolition owing to the BDA’s failure to consider the general power of attorney (GPA) before sanctioning the detailed building plan that resulted in deviation from the approved development plan.
The Comptroller and Auditor General (CAG) has slammed the Bangalore Development Authority for its failure to monitor compliance with building bylaws, especially involving large projects, and said it has resulted in the exploitation of unwary buyers. The audit report placed in the assembly on Monday said the BDA must continuously ensure bylaws are followed. “Failure to do so may result in severe losses to the buyers since BDA may subsequently deny occupancy certificates or demolish the building as those would be illegal structures,” it added.

According to the report, the BDA, in December 2016, issued notice to Prestige Developers seeking reasons for contravening the scope of the development plan approved by the authority. Since the reply was unsatisfactory, it directed the builder to stop work and remove the structure constructed while recallig the sanctioned plan. By then, the developer had developed, ad vertised and sold some residential units in the agricultural land zone to prospective owners violating the norms stipulated in the zoning regulations of the Revised Master Plan 2015 for Bengaluru. As per the regulations, if the land is more than 40 hectares, golf course along with ancillary units like administrative office, guest rooms guest houses and dining facilities may be permitted for housing the staff of government, semi-government, public and private limited for short duration.

The back story

In 2012, owners of Survey Nos 27 to 42 and 56 of Vaderahalli village applied for conversion of land use from agricultural to nonagricultural for the development of golf course and ancillary units. The then deputy commissioner, Bengaluru Rural district, gave the approval on the condition that the land would be used for the intended purpose and construction would be undertaken after obtaining approval from zonal development authorities.

The owners applied to the BDA for sanction of non-residential development plan and it was approved on January 21, 2013 for a golf course and ancillary units. The report said that BDA issued the work order on June 28, 2013 after the land owner entered into a development agreement with Prestige Developers to develop the property and for its sale after executing a GPA in favour of the developer , empowering him to sell, lease, mortgage, exchange or otherwise 67% divided and or undivided share in the land.

“The GPA was submitted along with other docu ments to BDA prior to seeking sanction for the detailed building plan. Despite possessing the GPA, which altered the scope of the development plan sanctioned, BDA sanctioned the detailed building plan for construction of golf course with 460 guest houses on remittance of prescribed fees and charges,” the report said.

AKRAMA – SAKRAMA – UPDATE – A NEW YEAR GIFT FROM THE GOVERNMENT FOR THE REGULARISATION OF VIOLATION AND DEVIATION


AKRAMA – SAKRAMA – UPDATE – A NEW YEAR GIFT FROM THE GOVERNMENT FOR THE REGULARISATION OF VIOLATION AND DEVIATION

The Government of Karnataka will notify the AKRAMA-SAKRAMA Scheme, may be from 02-01-2017 and the applications can be submitted till April, 2017.

In a bid to thwart any attempt to bring in a STAY ORDER, the Government has submitted a CAVEAT in the Supreme Court of India.

The Scheme will be enforced subject to the Supreme Court directives.

It is estimated that there are over 10,00,000 properties which have deviated from the sanctioned building plan and over few lakh sites which are in the revenue belt and DC Converted in unauthorised layouts.

B katha sites, if, eligible can regularise and the buildings with a deviation and violation of 50% in case of residential buildings and 25% in case of commercial buildings can be regularised under this scheme.

The state government on Saturday decided to invite applications from property owners for regularisation of illegal properties within the limits of the Bruhat Bangalore Mahangara Palike (BBMP).

A high-level meeting of BBMP, BDA and Urban Development department chaired by CM Siddaramaiah resolved to give four months time to the public to submit their applications for regularisation.

The state government, after resolving a few technical issues within the scheme, has finally decided to issue an official notification inviting applications from the public. Addressing media persons, Bengaluru Development Minister KJ George said, “The government has set a deadline of four months to submit applications by the public. Those properties built before 19 October 2013 are eligible for regularisation.” Elaborating further, George said, “There will not be any change in the fee structure which is based on the guidance value of the property.

All residential properties with 50 per cent deviation and commercial properties with 25 per cent deviation will be eligible to apply under the scheme.

Public can submit their applications online as well as manually at BBMP offices. Any property, which has deviation and had failed to apply under the scheme, will be mapped and mercilessly demolished after the end of the deadline.”

 

 

A – KATHA, SANCTIONED PLANS – THEN WHY AND HOW CAN THE BBMP DEMOLISH THE BUILDINGS?


OBTAINING OR  GETTING A KAHTA  OR REGISTERING THE PROPERTY WITH FALSE REPRESENTATIONS – FABRICATED OR FORGED OR FAKE DOCUMENTS – FORGERY – MISREPRESENTATION OF FACTS – FRAUD – IS A PUNISHABLE OFFENCE.

Every day, Everyone is talking about the DEMOLITION OR RECOVERY of the Government Lands.

The DC Conversion order is clear and states that the holder of the conversion order or the land lord is not EMPOWERED TO bifurcate or carve a layout without the approval of the planning authority and the most important clause is that, in the event, the documents submitted or statements provided are false, fake, forged, fabricated, bogus and the facts misrepresented in the application submitted for the change of land use (D C Conversion) then the DC Conversion order stands automatically cancelled without notice.

Furthermore, the final condition of the DC order clearly states that in the event of any NON-COMPLIANCE of any of the conditions of the order, the order stands cancelled without the issuance of a notice and the Government will remove the structures or the buildings constructed on such properties and collect the demolition charges from the owner or the landlord as revenue arrears.

All the development plans, approvals, NOC`s, building plans sanctioned has the same clause as above.

Even, without saying, if any document is fake, bogus, forged or fabricated, all the licenses, approvals, NOC`s, consents and permissions STANDS CANCELLED WITHOUT FURTHER NOTICE and the authorities have the power to initiate appropriate criminal and civil proceedings against such perpetrators.

DOES ANYONE KNOW THAT THEIR TITLES ARE PERFECT AND THE STATEMENTS OR REPRESENTATIONS ARE TRUE?

COMPENSATION:

Must be paid to the poorest of the poor, who had been cheated by the seller.  The government must initiate action and bring the culprit to the book.
