Regularising revenue sites to be debated

Regularising revenue sites to be debated

The government in 2005 had banned registration of such sites and layouts. There are around five lakh such unauthorised revenue sites in and around major cities.

The Karnataka  Land Revenue Bill -2009 now provides for regularisation of such sites and layouts developed prior to December 31, 2008 as a one time measure imposing penalty. Section 95 of the 1964 Act will have to be amended for this.

The Bill had been introduced in the legislature during the Belgaum session but could not be taken up for discussion. It has now been listed in the business agenda in the present session.

However, land that lies in natural drains, coming in the way of proposed roads, reserved for civic amenities, forest land, among others will not be considered for regularisation.
The government also proposes to amend Karnataka Control of Organised Crimes Act. The new provision in the amendment bill proposed to consider terrorism as ‘organised crime’.

The government has also proposed death sentence or imprisonment for life and/or fine of Rs 10 lakh for those convicted for terrorist acts even if such acts do not result in loss of life.
