Regularisation: residents challenge notification

Staff Reporter

BANGALORE: A group of residents under the umbrella of “Abhyudaya,” a federation of resident welfare associations of Bangalore, on Friday challenged a government notification seeking to regularise building violations.

In its petition, Abhyudaya said the amendment to the Karnataka Town and Country Planning Act permitting the Bruhut Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) to regularise illegal violations up to 50 per cent in residential buildings and also violations in commercial buildings was contrary to the law and illegal.

A Division Bench, comprising Chief Justice Cyriac Joseph and Justice Ashok B. Hinchigeri, adjourned the hearing on the petition till November 6 after the government advocate pointed out that a similar case was posted to that date.
