To reduce the number of illegal land sales and property sales, HDMA is planning to conduct awareness campaign among the property dealers. This initiative is to encourage them to regularize their illegal layouts (land designs) under the Layout Regularization Scheme (LRS). This is a benefit to the HDMA wing as well as the builders.
Right now those illegal land and property owners should pay penalization charges, open space and change of land use charges. For now the applicants of LRS should pay all these three charges to the HMDA compulsorily. So the HMDA came up with an option that if a group of owners approach rather than single applicants to LRS, HMDA will reduce these penalization charges and open space charges.
The estimation given by the officials of HMDA tell us that there are over 10000 illegal layouts in the state and especially in rural areas. Not only the land owners, but also the buyers of land should face the heat of getting indulged in illegal acts. They may even get penalized by the government. To avoid all these, the regularization of land is a must. Also there should be a minimum of 10% open space in any construction area. These are certain rules to be followed by the builders during constructions.
Even if there is no availability of such space, the people can request to reserve some open spaces. This will help them get a clean chit from HMDA sudden inspections. HMDA also stated that many of the applicants do not even know the basics of land usage and Layout Regularization Scheme. Due to which, there are chances that they pay more than what is required at the time of applying for LRS. The HMDA metropolitan commissioner urged its officials to conduct various camps because the deadline for this scheme is 30 September 2012.
