Property owners, builders say no to premium FAR 12.8.2017 deccanherald.com
Are you planning to build your dream home? Then be prepared to pay a hefty fee to buy floor space over and above what the existing rules permit. The Common Zoning Rules drafted by the Urban Development department has introduced a new concept of premium FAR (floor area ratio). This could potentially burn a hole in the pockets of property owners and buyers. It has also created a lot of ambiguity among the people. DH interacted with citizens and experts to throw more light on the issue. Shakuntala Iyer, chairperson, National Real Estate Development Council (NAREDCO), Karnataka says, "It is a known fact that the real estate is an unorganised sector. The move to implement premium FAR is a welcome decision. But the proposal to reduce the existing permissible FAR means developers have to buy premium FAR paying additional cost." The government, she says, should relax the rules so that the developers can take up more projects. "It has to lessen the burden on developers to encourage people to buy their dream ...

HC lays down norms for BBMP to demolish structures in city 2.8.2017 Deccan Herald - News
The High Court of Karnataka has laid down guidelines to be followed by Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) while handling cases with regard to removal of encroachments and demolition of any structures in the city. A division bench comprising Chief Justice S K Mukherjee and Justice P S Dinesh Kumar, while passing an order on a writ appeal filed by a resident of Doddanekkundi, Kavitha Podwal, noticed that BBMP had not placed any records to show that they had carried out the demolition as per Section 462 of the Karnataka Municipal Corporations Act, 1976. (Section 462 - Time for complying with order and power to enforce in default). Kavitha Podwal had sought damages from BBMP for demolishing her house despite a stay order. The bench, expressing shock over BBMP not acting upon Kavitha's representation said, "The authority despicably cold-shouldered the issue in a casual, lackadaisical manner and in flagrant disobedience of the orders of this court." Imposing a cost of Rs 25,000 on BBMP, the bench ...

HC: Palike can't cite NGT order to deny occupancy certificate 19.7.2017 Deccan Herald - City
The High Court of Karnataka on Wednesday told the BBMP that it cannot withhold the occupancy certificate by citing the National Green Tribunal's order. The court was hearing a petition filed by Sri Nakoda Constructions Ltd, which had sought directions to the BBMP to allot it the occupancy certificate since it had completed the construction according to the sanctioned plan. Justice Vineet Kothari told BBMP that the plan was sanctioned much before the NGT order on buffer zones came up and the NGT has not sought the demolition of any buildings in its order. The NGT, in its judgement on May 4, 2016, had imposed new buffer zones of 75 metres for lakes and wetlands which will be a no-construction zone, as opposed to 30 metres earlier, in Bengaluru. Under-construction buildings will have to be demolished. However, if the construction is already completed, the order is not applicable. The BBMP counsel sought time to place the order of the NGT before the court as it had denied the occupancy certificate based on ...

CEC favours cancellation of 20 iron ore mine leases in state 15.7.2017 Deccan Herald - State
The Supreme Court-appointed Central Empowered Committee (CEC) has recommended action against 20 iron ore mining leases in Karnataka for their lapses in implementing reclamation and rehabilitation (R and R) work. The CEC, in its report submitted to the court after inspecting R and R activities being executed by 'B' category mines in Ballari district, said, of the 20 mines, four lease holders failed to supply baseline data and other relevant material to prepare R and R plan. The state government can implement the R and R plans after treating these leases as lapsed, the report said. "Despite the R and R plan being ready, the remaining 16 lease holders neither deposited the money nor it has been recovered from them. The lessees may be directed to deposit the due amount within 30 days from the date of the order, failing which the government may take appropriate action for treating the leases as lapsed," said the report. The panel suggested that Karnataka, Telangana and Surveyor General of India may be ...

The state government on Friday informed the High Court of Karnataka that the latest status report on the rescue and rehabilitation of victims of human-trafficking will be filed in the next hearing.
