Stay on Akrama-Sakrama scheme extended

Defending the Akrama-Sakrama scheme for regularisation of unauthorised developments and constructions, the State government on Monday reiterated before the High Court of Karnataka that the scheme falls within the parameters of regularisation as upheld by the Supreme Court in the case of Chennai.

Advocate-General Ravivarma Kumar also clarified that it is a one-time scheme, which would enable the State to bring in a large number of constructions under the property tax net.

A Division Bench, comprising acting Chief Justice Subhro Kamal Mukherjee and Justice B.V. Nagarathna, which was hearing PIL petitions questioning the legality of the scheme, sought to know from the State if there were any statistics available on unauthorised developments or constructions.

Meanwhile, the Bench extended for two weeks the interim order through which it had restrained the State from processing applications for regularisation, while asking the State to file its objection to a new PIL filed by Namma Bengaluru Foundation.
