Bengaluru: the year ahead... 9.2.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
When we talk about the year 2017, the real estate sector is likely to transform by bringing in more transparency, uniform pricing and timely completion of projects. The introduction of Real Estate Regulation and Development Act (RERA) has been a positive move for the industry, as it will streamline and bring in accountability among all stakeholders. This will ensure timely delivery of projects, transparency and governance measures that will reinforce trust within buyers. The reduction in interest rates by certain banks is a positive and welcome move for the real estate sector. This would improve the buying sentiment, thereby encouraging prospective home buyers to complete their purchase. The new buyers would stand to benefit from this interest rate reduction, and provide existing buyers an option to restructure their current home loans. The demonetisation move alters the macros of the economy due to higher liquidity, resulting in lower inflation and cost of borrowing. This would lead to interest rate ...

BMIC: SC notice to state, Kheny 11.1.2017 deccanherald.com
The Supreme Court on Wednesday issued notices to Karnataka government and others on a plea by an activist against a Karnataka High Court order that had quashed investigation against top officials and others for grant of additional 4,285 acres of land for building townships by the Nandi Infrastructure Corridor Enterprise (NICE).

A bench of Justices S A Bobde and L Nageswara Rao sought responses from the state government and others, including NICE and its MD Ashok Kheny on a special leave petition filed by anti-corruption activist Abraham T J.

The Special Lokayukta Court had ordered investigation into the matter on a complaint by Abraham, on October 25, 2012.

Appearing in person, the petitioner contended the records were illegally manipulated to show lesser extent of government land, resulting in additional allocation of 4,285 acres in the name of the execution of the Bangalore Mysore Infrastructure Corridor (BMIC) Project.

NICE gets stay on govt notice over toll collection 19.12.2016 deccanherald.com
The Nandi Infrastructure Corridor Enterprise (NICE) has been successful in getting a stay from a court on the notice served by the state government on it, seeking why toll collection on the Bangalore-Mysore Infrastructure Corridor should not be stopped. According to official sources, the government had served a notice to NICE, after the Legislature committee report on the reported violation of the framework agreement by the company, was tabled in the Assembly during the recently concluded winter session of the legislature in Belagavi. However, NICE has been quick to outsmart the government, the sources added. The government is now working towards getting the stay vacated. The committee had noted that NICE had violated the framework agreement between itself and the Public Works Department (PWD) by collecting toll, without even providing cemented roads or facilities such as drinking water and toilets for road users. Despite this, NICE has been collecting higher toll than its competitors, the report ...

Take over BMIC  project, order CBI probe: Gowda to govt 11.12.2016 deccanherald.com
JD(S) supremo and former prime minister HDDeve Gowda on Sunday said a CBI probe can reveal the extent of "large scale irregularities" in the implementation of the Bangalore-Mysore Infrastructure Corridor (BMIC) project. Addressing a press conference in Bengaluru, Gowda said the state government should immediately take over the project as recommended by a House committee headed by Law Minister TBJayachandra. Gowda said he has always been stating that the Nandi Infrastructure Corridor Enterprise (NICE), the promoters of the BMICproject, has been indulging in irregularities during the last two decades. The content of the report of the House committee, which was tabled in the winter session of the state legislature in Belagavi recently, has vindicated his stand, he said. Gowda said Chief Minister Siddaramaiah had recently stated that strict action will be initiated against the promoters of the project. "I have faith that the chief minister will keep his word. We (the JD-S) were portrayed as villains when we ...

Hand over encroachment cases to spl court: Panel convener 10.12.2016 deccanherald.com
The anti-land grab action committee on Saturday said the government had not handed over cases pertaining to encroachment of government lands to a special court.

Convener of the committee A T Ramaswamy told reporters that the court had been set up for the speedy trial of land-grabbing cases.

The government should take the issue of encroachment seriously and extend all co-operation to the court to conduct speedy trial, Ramaswamy said.

He said Assembly speaker K B Koliwad should resign from the post of chairman of the committee probing encroachment of lakes in Bengaluru Urban and Bengaluru Rural districts. It is not proper for the presiding officer of the Assembly to head such an important committee, Ramaswamy said.

He said the government should implement recommendations made by an Assembly committee that went into irregularities in the Bangalore-Mysore Infrastructure Corridor project.
