Mangaluru, Dec 06, 2016: It is reliably reported that DK DC Dr K G Jagadeesha has categorically declared that it impossible to provide clearance certificate under CRZ Act to those who have built houses after 1991. If the people who have obtained the certificate from CRZ for houses built before 1991, all possible efforts will be done to regularise their land under 94 CC of Karnataka Land Revenue Act, he said.
Speaking during the visit of Food and Civil Supplies Minister U T Khader along with a delegation of officials from Revenue Department to Uliya under CRZ limits in Ullal constituency on Dec 5, Monday.
Applications : The residents of Uliya had submitted applications under 94 CC to regularise their land. As per the CRZ act, building of houses is not permitted after 1991 on the CRZ. If the residents were living before the said year, the revenue officers must identify the land and redirect the same to the deputy commissioner towards issuing the CRZ clearance certificate. All possible efforts will be taken by the district administration in such case, after a discussion with CRZ resident manager and revenue officials towards realising the CRZ laws. At present, the tahsildar has ordered for the clearance of a few houses. If the law permits, the residents will be permitted to stay on the said site.
The residents of the village said that only seven out of 87 families in Uliya have received clearance. At least 65 of them have been dependent on the land on which they are residing at present and others own small amounts of patta land. The occupation of major number of these families are fisheries and agriculture, they said and requested the authorities to revoke the rights implemented in 1981 to facilitate the residents to obtain the RTC.
Leader Sundara Uliya said that the residents were told to pay 50% of land during 1987. But, owing to financial constraints, they could not do so and therefore did not get the RTC. The RTCs are obtained by only those who were financially sound and could pay the amount. All the people have been carrying out agricultural activities the last 70 years. But now, they have lost all their lands. The district administration must draw the attention of the government towards providing the lands to them again, said Uliya.
Thokkottu bus terminal : Khader, who is also the legislator of Mangaluru constituency, said that the Thokkottu bus stand will be developed in the PPP model and later will be handed over to the local authorities. The Ashraya colony houses at Ombattukere will be demolished and apartments will be constructed for the poor. The houses in the colony were built under the Rajiv Gandhi Housing Corporation at Someshwara Ombattukere in 2001 during the tenure of S M Krishna and are now in dilapidated condition.
