Thakur urged to scrap ‘Sakrama’ scheme

Staff Reporter


Workshop held to elicit people’s views on the scheme


BANGALORE: Participants of a workshop on “Sakrama – What Next”’ organised by the Citizens’ Action Forum (CAF) here on Thursday urged Governor Rameshwar Thakur to scrap the “Sakrama” scheme formulated to regularise unauthorised constructions.

The workshop was organised to elicit people’s views with the Karnataka High Court posting the hearing on the scheme to February 6.

Representatives of 143 non-governmental organisations, residents’ welfare associations, including those from Abhyudaya (a Federation of Residents Welfare Associations of Ward 55 – Padmanabhanagar) which has obtained a stay against the implementation of the scheme, participated in the workshop.

The participants were divided into six groups to discuss the legal and ethical aspects, set back and floor area ratio violations and zoning regulations along with other issues related to the scheme.

People’s plight

The plight of the people of 110 villages, which have been merged with the erstwhile Bangalore Mahanagara Palike to form Bruhut Bangalore Mahanahara Palike, was also discussed.

First time

N.S Mukunda and Mathew Thomas of the forum said that for the first time, representatives of slum dwellers sought inclusion of slums for regularisation under the scheme.

The forum would include these suggestions and recommendations in a memorandum to be submitted to the Governor shortly.

A memorandum would also be submitted to the court, Mr. Mukunda said.
