Property owners doing construction of single-unit residential buildings on plots measuring up to 60×40 ft has good news.
The trouble of doing the rounds of the BBMP offices could be resolved, if a Palike proposal to the urban development department is approved.
The July 24 proposal draws on the self-assessment scheme in filing property tax returns and the trust-and-verify concept underlining the Centre’s Atal Mission for Rejuvenation and Urban Transformation (Amrut) reforms outlined in 2017-18.
BBMP commissioner N Manjunatha Prasad told that the concept is so easy that owners of sites measuring up to 60×40 ft need not obtain sanction for their building construction plan, but need to follow the building bylaws and rules framed by the civic body.
The property owner is free to take up construction of permissible floors as per the building bylaws, but will have to submit a designated plan copy to the jurisdictional BBMP engineer’s office.
There won’t be any restrictions in getting occupancy certificates or other documents for the construction. However, the civic body will have the right to issue provisional order under sections 321(1), 321 (2) and confirmation order under section 321 (3) of the Karnataka Municipal Corporation Act, 1976, under which action is initiated in case of violation of bylaws.
The commissioner maintained the building plan sanction will be generated in three days. After the licence and approved plans are generated, officials will complete their verification within 30 days. If they fail to conduct the inspection, it would be deemed to be authenticated.
