Our Bureau Hubli | Updated on February 15, 2011

The Federation of Karnataka Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FKCCI) has welcomed the direction of the Karnataka High Court, which gave two months time to the State Government to review and reconsider amendments brought out to the Country and Town Planning Act pertaining to the Akrama-Sakrama Scheme.

Mr N.S. Srinivasa Murthy, President of FKCCI, in a release, said, “This is a welcome opportunity for the Government to take the public opinion into consideration and amend the scheme accordingly, particularly in respect of quantum of fees.


“Violations in respect of FAR ratios, number of floors, setbacks on the existing buildings can be condoned collecting penalties.

“Violations that have already taken place have to be set right.

“Wherever violations have taken place such as in high rise buildings which encroach upon roads, open space buildings and buildings on unauthorised lands should not be regularised (Raja Kaluves, dried up lakes, highways, parks etc.).

There should be a balance between public interest and strict enforcement of law relating to demolition.”
