AKRAMA – SAKRAMA ADJOURNED TO 19-09-2016


The regularisation of unauthorised buildings and layouts scheme, called AKRAMA SAKRAMA, has been posted for final hearing on 19-09-2016.

The amendment must deal with the NGT order and the present scenario with care and come out with a proper direction to the Government with a mechanism to avoid the future irregularities.

In the meanwhile the High Court of Karnataka has DECLINED to entertain a plaint seeking A STAY for the present clearing of ENCROACHMENTS across Bangalore.  It is a setback for the property owners.

The State Government has finally decided to take action against the officials who had issued or sanctioned the building plans on Raja Kaluve.

The property owners, who have lost their properties may initiate legal proceedings against the officials, who had sanctioned the building plan.

The property owners can initiate appropriate legal proceedings against the sellers of such properties to recover their monies, if possible.

OCCUPANCY CERTIFICATE – BBMP – 2016-17 -TILL DATE


The BBMP has issued only 13 Occupancy Certificates in 2016-17, of which 3 are commercial projects and 10 are residential apartments.

There are few hundred projects which had been completed and few hundred housing apartment projects are underway, but only few builders and the apartments have the MANDATORY OCCUPANCY CERTIFICATE.

Between 2011-12 to 20161-7, the BBMP has issued around 300+ Occupancy Certificates and the remaining buildings or projects or apartments DOES NOT HAVE MANDATORY OCCUPANCY CERTIFICATE, it means, that buildings or apartments or projects are NOT WORTH BUYING OR OCCUPYING.

FIRE AT BRAND FACTORY AT MARUTHALLI, BANGALORE


The fire gutted the entire store of over 5 floors.

The issues:

1). Deviation and violation.

Not constructed as per the sanctioned building plan.

2). Deliberate Non-Compliance of Fire and Emergency safety precautions.

The building owner has not constructed the building with safety measures, as it was past midnight, no casualties reported.

3). As it was a irregular and dangerous construction, the building did not have CC and OC.

The tenant or the lessee was not at all bothered about the sanctioned building plan nor bothered about the CC and OC resulting in the fire.

4). Insurance Claims.

Naturally, it will be repudiated or rejected, because of the Non-Compliance of the building by laws and the provisions of the Indian Electricity Act.
