The Akrama-Sakrama scheme is anticipated to be soon implemented so that it enables the much awaited regularization of building bylaws and land use violations in urban areas. There are rampant violations by quite a few developers pertaining to setbacks, floor-area ratio (FAR), building on agricultural land without getting the conversion done, formation of unauthorized layouts and sites even under bodies such as Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP). All of the above will come under this scheme.

The scheme will regularize up to 50 percent violations of setback norms and permitted FAR in residential buildings while it will be 25 percent in commercial buildings. Any violation going beyond this would lead to demolition of the structure.

The BBMP is yet to put the mechanism in place to accept applications under the scheme. The application consists of three parts, first is for regularization of sites in an unauthorized sub-divided land. Next is regularizing buildings with land use violations and regularization of unapproved but either non-violated or violated and approved but non-violated.

As per the officials the government is expecting nearly Rs. 32,000 crores through this scheme. The money generated through this would be used in development of urban local bodies.

What won’t be regularized under this scheme?

  • Properties either adjacent to or located against storm water drains, tank beds, river course or canals.
  • Where the construction is done under high-tension electric wires
  • Any land that is developed or planned for a playground, park or any other amenities meant for public
  • Any property that would require a Karnataka State Pollution Control Board Clearance won’t be regularized
  • In case of violation of more than 50 percent of residential building construction
  • Any development in an agricultural zone or green belt under Karnataka Land Revenue Act of 1964
  • If the land belongs to Bangalore Development Authority (BDA)
  • Any construction closer to defense establishments or installations or any other government buildings dealing with classified and sensitive materials. Here the height of construction prescribed by the governing authority is of key significance.
