'Buildings in Maskam will be accorded legal status'

Decision taken in the CMC general body meeting

The illegal buildings constructed in the Maskam area under the City Municipal Council limits will be accorded legal status.

A decision in this regard was taken at the CMC meeting organised at its office in Robertsonpet in Kolar Gold Fields on Tuesday.

The land in the survey numbers- 25, 26, 29, 30, 31, 38, 40, 41, 45, 48, 64 and 67 measuring 92.19 acres was recently surveyed by tahsildar.

Houses, temple, church and mosque have already been built on the site. A decision was taken to identify the vacant plots and to stop encroachments. It was also decided to put up CMC property nameplate.

A notice has already been issued to the residents who have built their houses in the area to submit their land documents. As soon as the Akrama Sakrama guidelines will be issued by the government, the documents will be made legal according to the provisions, CMC president P Dayanand said.

There was a long discussion on the requisite of the BGML company which has sought Khata documents for the houses in the BGML limits.

Basic amenities have already been provided to houses in the BGML area. BGML request can be fulfilled. However, company owes money to CMC.

If the company repays the money and submits all the houses documents, new Khata documents from the CMC will be issued, he added.

People under benami names are doing business at the MG Market in Robertsonpet. Most of the shops in the Market have not obtained licence from the CMC.

Identifying such cases have become a major headache for the CMC, Commissioner Balachandra.
