GOMALA LAND ENCROACHMENT CLEARED AT BANGALORE

Officials of the district administration on Wednesday demolished an illegal layout developed by three city-based builders at Yelahanka town. It was spread across one acre and 25 guntas of government grazing land worth Rs. 15 crore.

The encroached land is part of the 640 acres of gomala (government grazing land) in Jarak Bande Kaval (survey number 1). The three builders had even created land ownership records in their names from fake documents purportedly from Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP).

N. Nandish, Revenue Inspector of Yelahanka division, said the builders — K.T. Kumar, K. Ramesh and Srinivas — had formed the layout by marking sites measuring 600 sq ft each and sold them.
“Though this is part of the gomala land and protected by the Revenue Department, the builders had acquired 1.25 acres and got the khatas (title deeds) from BBMP by forging documents,” said a senior official of the Revenue Department.
The Revenue Department has registered a case against the three builders under the Land Revenue Act with the Mahalakshmi Layout police, he said. This is not the first time the builders have done this, said a senior revenue official. According to him, the three had encroached the same piece of land one-and-half years ago, which was recovered with great difficulty.
Though the department had submitted a detailed report and got the demolition orders three months ago, it was put on hold until Tuesday due to various reasons, said the officials, adding that the builders tried to get political influence to stop the demolition, but in vain.

ENCROACHMENT OF RAJA KALUVE AND CLEARING/REMOVING THE ENCROACHMENTS IN BANGALORE - A NEWS REPORT

A NEWS REPORT IN KANNADA PRABHA REGARDING THE ENCROACHMENT OF RAJA KALUVE OR VANISHING DRAINS IN BANGALORE

ರಾಜಾ ಒತ್ತುವರಿ ತೆರವೆಂದು?

600 ಕಿ.ಮೀ. ರಾಜಾಕಾಲುವೆಯಲ್ಲಿ ಉಳಿದಿರುವುದು 350ಕಿ.ಮೀ. ಮಾತ್ರ


ಬೆಂಗಳೂರು: ಮಹಾನಗರದ ಮರಗಳು, ಕೆರೆಗಳಿಗೆ ಜೀವ ಜಲ ನೀಡುವ ರಾಜಾಕಾಲುವೆಗಳೇ ಈಗ ಜೀವಂತ ಸಮಾಧಿಯಾಗುತ್ತಿವೆ. ನಗರದಲ್ಲಿದ್ದ 600 ಕಿ.ಮೀ. ರಾಜಾಕಾಲುವೆಯಲ್ಲಿ ಈಗ 350ಕಿ.ಮೀ. ಮಾತ್ರ ಉಳಿದಿದೆ.
ನಗರದಲ್ಲಿ ಬರೋಬ್ಬರಿ 250 ಕಿ.ಮೀ. ಉದ್ದದ ಕಾಲುವೆ ಒತ್ತುವರಿಗೆ ತುತ್ತಾಗಿದೆ. ಅಪಾರ್ಟ್‌ಮೆಂಟ್‌ಗಳು,  ಮನೆಗಳು, ವ್ಯಾಪಾರ ಮಳಿಗೆಗಳು ಇವುಗಳನ್ನು ನುಂಗಿ ಹಾಕಿವೆ. ಹೀಗಾಗಿ ನಗರಲ್ಲಿ ಮಳೆ ಬಂತೆಂದರೆ  ಸಾಕು ಕಾಲುವೆಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ಹರಿಯಬೇಕಿದ್ದ ನೀರು ರಸ್ತೆಗಳು, ಮನೆಗಳಿಗೆ ನುಗ್ಗುತ್ತದೆ.
ಇದನ್ನು ತಪ್ಪಿಸಲು ನಗರ ಜಿಲ್ಲಾಧಿಕಾರಿಗಳು ರಾಜಾಕಾಲುವೆ ಒತ್ತುವರಿ ತೆರವು ಸರ್ವೆ ನಡೆಸಿ ಬಿಬಿಎಂಪಿಗೆ ವರದಿಯನ್ನೂ ನೀಡಿದ್ದಾರೆ. ಒತ್ತುವರಿ ತೆರವಿಗೆ ಸೂಚನೆ ನೀಡಿದ್ದಾರೆ. ಆದರೆ ಬಿಬಿಎಂಪಿ ಮಾತ್ರ ವರದಿಯ ಪೂರ್ಣ ವಿವರವೇ ಬಂದಿಲ್ಲ ಎಂದು ಕಥೆ ಹೇಳುತ್ತಿದೆ. ಅಷ್ಟೇ ಏಕೆ ? ಒತ್ತುವರಿ ತೆರವು ಮಾಡುವಲ್ಲಿ ಬಿಬಿಎಂಪಿಗಿಂತ ಜಿಲ್ಲಾಧಿಕಾರಿಯೇ ಹೆಚ್ಚು ಸಮರ್ಥರು ಎಂದು ಸಬೂಬು ಸಹ ಹೇಳುತ್ತಿದೆ. ಹೀಗಾಗಿ ಯಾವ ಸಂಸ್ಥೆಯೂ ತೆರವು ಕಾರ್ಯಕ್ಕೆ ಮುಂದಾಗಿಲ್ಲ.
ಅಲಕ್ಷಿಸಿದರೆ ಅಪಾಯ: ರಾಜ್ಯ ಮಾಲಿನ್ಯ ನಿಯಂತ್ರಣ ಮಂಡಳಿ ವರದಿ ಪ್ರಕಾರ ನಗರದಲ್ಲಿ ಸಹಸ್ರಾರು ಮರಗಳು ನಾಶವಾಗಿವೆ. 265 ಕೆರೆಗಳು ಮಾಯವಾಗಿವೆ. ಮರಗಳು ಮತ್ತು ಕೆರೆಗಳನ್ನು ಬದುಕುಳಿಸುವುದೇ ರಾಜಕಾಲುವೆಗಳು. ಅಂದರೆ ಮಳೆ  ನೀರು ರಾಜಾಕಾಲುವೆಗಳ ಮೂಲಕ ಕೆರೆ ಸೇರುತ್ತಿತ್ತು. ಒತ್ತುವರಿಯಾಗಿರುವುದರಿಂದ ರಾಜಾಕಾಲುವೆಯಲ್ಲಿ ನೀರು ಬರುವುದೇ ಕಡಿಮೆಯಾಗಿ ಬೇರೆ ತಗ್ಗು ಪ್ರದೇಶಕ್ಕೆ ನುಗ್ಗಲಾರಂಭಿಸಿತು. ಇದರಿಂದಾಗಿ ಕೆರೆಗಳು ಬತ್ತಿದವು. ಹಾಗೆಯೇ ಭೂಗಳ್ಳರಿಂದ ಒತ್ತುವರಿಯಾದವು.
ಹೀಗಾಗಿ ನಗರದಲ್ಲಿ 265ಕೆರೆಗಳ ಪೈಕಿ ಬರೀ 96 ಕೆರೆಗಳಷ್ಟೇ ಉಳಿದಿವೆ. ಬಿಬಿಎಂಪಿ ಈಗಲಾದರೂ ಒತ್ತುವರಿ ತೆರವುಗೊಳಿಸದಿದ್ದರೆ ಕೆಲವೇ ವರ್ಷಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ರಾಜಾಕಾಲವೆಯನ್ನು ಹುಡುಕಬೇಕಾಗುತ್ತದೆ.
ಜವಾಬ್ದಾರಿಯಿಂದ ಜಾರಿಕೆ ತಂತ್ರ: ನಗರದಲ್ಲಿ ರಾಜಾಕಾಲುವೆ ಒತ್ತುವರಿ ತೆರವುಗೊಳಿಸಬೇಕೆಂಬ ಕೂಗು ಎದ್ದಾಗ ಕೆಲವು ಪಾಲಿಕೆ ಸದಸ್ಯರಷ್ಟೇ ಅದಕ್ಕೆ ದನಿ ಗೂಡಿಸಿದರು. ಆದರೆ ಶಾಸಕ ಬಿ.ಎನ್.ವಿಜಯಕುಮಾರ್ ಕೆಲವು ಸೇವಾ ಸಂಸ್ಥೆಗಳ ಜತೆಗೂಡಿ ರಾಜಾಕಾಲುವೆ ಒತ್ತುವರಿ ಸರ್ವೆ ಮಾಡುವಂತೆ ಮಾಡಿದರು. ಈ ಹಿನ್ನೆಲೆಯಲ್ಲಿ ಜಿಲ್ಲಾಧಿಕಾರಿ, ಬಿಬಿಎಂಪಿ ಅಧಿಕಾರಿಗಳನ್ನು ಒಳಗೊಂಡು 8ಕ್ಕೂ ಹೆಚ್ಚು ಸಭೆಗಳು, ಸಮಾಲೋಚನೆಗಳು ನಡೆದವು. ಸರ್ವೆ ಕಾರ್ಯ ಮುಗಿದು ಈಗ ವರದಿಯೂ ಸಲ್ಲಿಕೆಯಾಗಿದೆ.
251 ಹಳ್ಳಿಗಳ ಮೂಲಕ ಹಾದು ಹೋಗಿದ್ದ ರಾಜಾಕಾಲುವೆ ಬಹುತೇಕ ಎಲ್ಲಾ ಹಳ್ಳಿಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ಒತ್ತುವರಿಯಾಗಿತ್ತು. 231 ಹಳ್ಳಿಗಳಲ್ಲಿ ಒತ್ತುವರಿ ನಡೆದಿದೆ. ಈ ಬಗ್ಗೆ ಬಿಬಿಎಂಪಿ ಬಳಿ ಸಮಗ್ರ ವರದಿಯೇ ಇದೆ. ಆದರೆ ಇದನ್ನಾಧರಿಸಿ ಬಿಬಿಎಂಪಿ ಮುಖ್ಯ ಎಂಜಿನಿಯರ್ ಅನಂತಸ್ವಾಮಿ ಒತ್ತುವರಿ ತೆರವು ಕಾರ್ಯ ನಡೆಸುತ್ತಿಲ್ಲ.
ವರದಿ ಸಲ್ಲಿಸಿ 6 ತಿಂಗಳೇ ಆಗಿದ್ದರೂ ಅವರು ಈತಕ ಕಾರ್ಯಾರಂಭ ಮಾಡಿಲ್ಲ ಎಂದು ನಗರ ಜಿಲ್ಲೆ ಭೂ ದಾಖಲೆಗಳ ಅಧಿಕಾರಿಗಳು ದೂರಿದ್ದಾರೆ. ಆದರೆ ಬಿಬಿಎಂಪಿಯ ಅನಂತಸ್ವಾಮಿ, ಕಾಲವೆ ಒತ್ತುವರಿ ಮಾಡಿರುವ ಸರ್ವೆಯ ಪೂರ್ಣ ವರದಿಯೇ ಸಿಕ್ಕಿಲ್ಲ ಎನ್ನುತ್ತಾರೆ.

-ಬಿಬಿಎಂಪಿಗೆ ಶಾಸಕರ ಗಡುವು
ರಾಜಕಾಲುವೆ ಒತ್ತುವರಿ ಸರ್ವೆ ನಡೆಸುವುದಕ್ಕಾಗಿ ಸರ್ಕಾರದ ಮೇಲೆ ಸಾಕಷ್ಟು ಒತ್ತಡ ಹಾಕಿದ್ದೇನೆ. ಅದೀಗ ಫಲ ನೀಡಿದೆ. ಜಿಲ್ಲಾಧಿಕಾರಿ ನೀಡಿರುವ ಸರ್ವೆ ವರದಿ ಆಧರಿಸಿ ಒತ್ತುವರಿ ತೆರವುಗೊಳಿಸದಿದ್ದರೆ ನಾನೇ ಬಿಬಿಎಂಪಿ ಮುಂದೆ ಧರಣಿ ನಡೆಸುತ್ತೇನೆ ಎಂದು ಶಾಸಕ ಬಿ.ಎನ್.ವಿಜಯಕುಮಾರ್ ಹೇಳಿದ್ದಾರೆ. ಇಷ್ಟೂ ದಿನ ಸರ್ವೆ ವರದಿ ಬರಲಿ ಎನ್ನುತ್ತಿದ್ದ ರಾಜಕಾಲುವೆ ಮುಖ್ಯ ಎಂಜಿನಿಯರ್ ಅನಂತಸ್ವಾಮಿ ಈಗ ವರದಿ ಸಿಕ್ಕಿಲ್ಲ, ಪೂರ್ಣ ಬಂದಿಲ್ಲ ಎನ್ನುತ್ತಿದ್ದಾರೆ. ಅವರಿಗೆ ಮೇ 16ರ ರವರೆಗೂ ಗಡುವು ನೀಡುತ್ತೇನೆ. ಆ ನಂತರವೂ ಅವರು ಕಾರ್ಯೋನ್ಮುಖರಾಗದಿದ್ದರೆ ಸೇವಾ ಸಂಸ್ಥೆಗಳು ಜತೆಗೂಡಿ ಅನಿರ್ಧಿಷ್ಟ ಅವಧಿ ಧರಣಿ ನಡೆಸುತ್ತೇನೆ ಎಂದು ಅವರು ಎಚ್ಚರಿಸಿದ್ದಾರೆ.

ರಾಜಾಕಾಲುವೆ ಒತ್ತುವರಿ ಸಮೀಕ್ಷೆ ಸಮಗ್ರ ಮಾಹಿತಿಯನ್ನು ನಕ್ಷೆ ಸಹಿತ ಬಿಬಿಎಂಪಿಗೆ ಮತ್ತು ಎಂಜಿನಿಯರ್ ವಿಭಾಗಕ್ಕೆ ನೀಡಲಾಗಿದೆ. ಅದನ್ನಾಧರಿಸಿ ಬಿಬಿಎಂಪಿ ತೆರವು ಮಾಡಬೇಕಿತ್ತು. ಆದರೆ ಇನ್ನೂ ತೆರವು ಮಾಡಿಲ್ಲ.
-ಡಾ.ಜಿ.ಸಿ.ಪ್ರಕಾಶ್, ನಗರ ಜಿಲ್ಲಾಧಿಕಾರಿ
ರಾಜಕಾಲುವೆ ಒತ್ತುವರಿ ಸರ್ವೆ ಮತ್ತು ತೆರವುಗೊಳಿಸುವುದೆಲ್ಲಾ ನಗರ ಜಿಲ್ಲಾಧಿಕಾರಿ ಅವರ ವ್ಯಾಪ್ತಿಗೆ ಬರುತ್ತದೆ. ಅವರಿಗೇ ಹೆಚ್ಚಿನ ಅಧಿಕಾರವಿದೆ. ನಮಗೆ ನಗರ ಜಿಲ್ಲಾಧಿಕಾರಿಯಿಂದ ಇನ್ನೂ ಸರ್ವೆ ವರದಿ ಪೂರ್ಣ ವಿವರ ಸಿಕ್ಕಿಲ್ಲ.

AKRAMA-SAKRAMA-LATEST NEWS-AN UPDATE - A NEWS REPORT - Karnataka govt drags feet on Akrama-Sakrama

READ:
Karnataka govt drags feet on Akrama-Sakrama

A NEWS REPORT IN TIMES OF INDIA

 The final notification of the much-hyped Karnataka Town and Country Planning (Regulation of unauthorized development or constructions) Rules 2013, or Akrama-Sakrama (regularization of unauthorized constructions) is expected be delayed further, with the government making no effort to implement the law.

Though the election code of conduct has been relaxed, the government seems to be in no mood to issue the final notification till the poll results are announced on May 16. The draft was issued in December-end and the public was given a month's time to file objections.

Hoping the Akrama-Sakrama scheme would provide it with a ready trump card as it heads into the Lok Sabha polls, the Congress tried to push the final notification in the first week of March, but the announcement of poll dates on March 5 stopped the government in its tracks.

"The file is with the chief minister. The final notification will be issued after one more round of discussion with the CM and senior ministers. This will be done after May 16," urban development minister Vinay Kumar Sorake told TOI.

If the scheme becomes a reality, it will provide a one-time opportunity for an estimated 8 lakh building and site bylaw violators in Bangalore, and 6 lakh violators in the rest of Karnataka's urban pockets to regularize their constructions. The government expects to mop up Rs 5,000 crore in revenue from Bangalore, and a like sum from other urban centres in the state.
