Sakrama Scheme in a Week; Cut-off Date Oct 19, 2013
BANGALORE: Putting behind himself the Lok Sabha poll debacle, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah is now set to implement the Akrama-Sakrama scheme for regularising building bylaw deviations in various cities, including Bangalore. This is expected to help mobilise resources for the cities’ infrastructure.
Siddaramaiah on Tuesday chaired a high-level meeting that approved the implementation of the Karnataka Town and Country Planning (Regularisation of Unauthorised Developments) Rules 2013, also known as Akrama-Sakrama, without any further delay.
The meeting decided to set the cut-off date as October 19, 2013 for regularisation of building bylaw violations by levying a regularisation fee. Any violations and deviations in building bylaws and plan sanctions after the cut-off date would be dealt with severely and such structures would be demolished.
The final notification is expected to be issued within a week, after which the scheme will come into effect, sources in Urban Development Department told Express.
Town and country planning director S B Honnur made a power point presentation at the meeting, which was also attended by Urban Development Minister Vinay Kumar Sorake and Law and Parliamentary Affairs Minister T B Jayachandra.
