Title deeds for illegal houses in urban areas?

The State government may pass a fresh law to issue title deeds to the houses constructed without authorisation on government land in urban areas.

Addressing a press conference on  Wednesday, Deputy Chief Minister K S Eshwarappa said that a bill proposing to regularise such houses constructed in rural areas had been passed by the legislature and several legislators were of the opinion that the benefit should be extended to urban areas as well.

“A preliminary meeting has already been held and the proposal will be finalised in the next meeting,” he said.

Disclosing that as many as 26 lakh applications seeking survey of land were pending, Eshwarappa said it had been decided to utilise the services of private licensed surveyors to clear the pendency.

He said the process to recruit 1,800 surveyors had been set in motion to overcome the shortage of surveyors in the Revenue department. It had also been planned to increase the remuneration of about 2,500 licensed private surveyors in the State.

He said it had been proposed to upgrade all Nemmadi centres in the State and to set up similar centres at hobli levels too. “The tender process has commenced and is expected to be completed by October end,” he added.
