Bangalore: The state government has decided to regularise unauthorised revenue sites by collecting penalties after studying the magnitude of violations.

The decision, applicable throughout the state, was taken at the cabinet meeting held here on Thursday.

Briefing reporters, information minister B Shivaram said a cabinet sub-committee headed by deputy chief minister M P Prakash will be constituted to frame guidelines to determine the nature of violations and to fix penalties for the same. Appointing members to the subcommittee is CM N Dharam Singh’s discretion, he said.

“The sub-committee has been given a month’s time to draft guidelines. After it submits the report, a government order will be issued to that effect. Subsequently, the ban on registration of sites will be lifted,’’ Shivaram said.

The sub-committee will fix penalties for the following reasons: nonpayment of land conversion charges, not leaving space for parks and other civic amenity sites in private layouts and non-payment of betterment charges.
