Allow high-rises in city, high court tells BBMP 27.6.2016 deccanherald.com
The High Court of Karnataka on Monday observed that the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palikeshould allow high-rises in Bengaluru as the city is not in the earthquake-prone zone. The court was hearing a batch of PILs challenging the Karnataka Town and Country Planning (Regularisation of Unauthorised Development or Constructions) Rules, 2014, or the Akrama-Sakrama rules. A division bench comprising Chief Justice S K Mukherjee and Justice Ravi Malimath said these rules would affect the middle and upper-middle classes of society as they were the ones who invested in apartments. The bench observed that the Palike should frame suitable rules to encourage construction of multi-floor buildings rather than making a provision to regularise them. The bench said the Akrama-Sakrama rules will affect citizens who have abided by the existing floor area ratio norms. If uniform rules are framed, those who have already constructed and those who wish to build more floors will also benefit. The petitioners' advocate, Jayna ...

Manyata deposits Rs 54.26 cr with HC as tax dues 27.6.2016 deccanherald.com
Manyata Promoters Private Limited on Monday deposited a demand draft for Rs 54.26 crore with the High Court as part of the difference of property tax that is due to be paid to the BBMP.

Manyata has appealed against the single bench order which had directed them to pay the difference of property tax and had stated that there was no illegality or irregularity in the demand notice issued by BBMP to Manyata, with regard to the tax arrears for 2008-16, which is Rs 83.45 crore. The appellants have contended that they come under category 14, where an amount of Rs 8 is to be paid per sq ft of the business park, but BBMPis claiming that Manyata comes under category 8, where an amount of Rs 10 has to be paid per sq ft. The appellants have contended that BBMP's calculation is misconceived.

People's problems 26.6.2016 deccanherald.com
BWSSBResponse With reference to the complaint raised byRPrabhakar on 'Contractor fleecing people'(published in these columns in the edition dated June 20, 2016), the BWSSB has said that there is no compulsion to obtain reconnection from the newly laid sanitary line from the contractor, if the charge is unreasonable. The Board has said that it upgrades the water and sanitary lines as and when the load on the lines increases. In such cases, work contract is given only for laying the upgraded line. People need to reconnect their domestic water/sanitary connection to the newly laid pipeline. There is no compulsion on the consumer to get reconnection from the contractor doing the pipeline work. If they feel the charges are high, they can get the work done with the help of any authorised plumber. With reference to the complaint on the road dug by BWSSB made by Shiji Verghese (published in these columns in the edition dated June 20, 2016), the Board has stated that the engineers from the Board had inspected the ...
