KMC vows to amend building rules
Source: The Times of India Aug 24, 2014
Kolkata Municipal Corporation (KMC) is bent on amending its building rules to regularize minor deviations by the middle class.

The civic body plans to amend its rules in case of violations like additional constructions or renovations to the houses. The move comes inspite of a Calcutta high court order restricting KMC from legalizing unauthorized constructions against a penalty. While the court said that KMC cannot regularize illegal buildings against a penalty, the buildings department earned Rs 55 crore in 2013-14 as penalty from such regularizations.

Mayor Sovan Chatterjee on August 21 said that a proposal was sent to the municipal affairs department for approval. "After we get the approval... it will be sent to the legislative assembly... The amendments... are important since we can't take the middle class for a ride. We must give relief to those who make mistakes out of ignorance," Chatterjee said.

KMC will allow violators to %appear for a hearing in case there is a minor violation of the rules and promises to treat the cases sympathetically. A decision to amend the rules has already been taken in the mayoral council meeting last week.
