Good News! The Bangalore High Court yesterday ruled that Non-Payment of Betterment Charges cannot be a reason to deny Khata by BBMP!
Here is an extract from Times News:
” Justice BS Patil set aside the differential rates of improvement (betterment) charges fixed by the civic body by terming them ‘arbitrary and unreasonable’.
Disposing of 300 petitions challenging the Karnataka Municipal Corporations (Recovery of Improvement Expenses) Rules, 2009, the judge directed BBMP to register khata in the event land owners have satisfied all other legal requirements.”
