Bengaluru: Corrupt officials issuing fake occupancy certificates, says N R Ramesh

Bengaluru: Over 90 per cent of the apartments in the city have been issued with fake 'commencement certificate' and 'occupancy certificate' by corrupt officials of BBMP and BDA. Over 12 lakh apartment dwellers are under the fear of losing their flats, alleged N. R. Ramesh, BJP city unit president.

Producing related documents Mr Ramesh said, "I have already lodged a complaint with the Lokayukta and ACB about this scam. If the civic bodies had actually collected the revenue for issuing OCs and CCs to the 12 lakh apartment, shopping complexes, IT parks etc it would have earned Rs 8,000 crore."

As officials issued it illegally, civic bodies have earned only Rs 3,000 crores, he alleged and demanded that the 54 BBMP officials and 668 builders who have deliberately done this to evade taxes should be suspended and blacklisted.

There are 3,758 IT companies, 93 BT companies, 79 tech parks, more than 3,000 commercial complexes and 114 malls. In the city, there are over 22,500 apartments.

But in the last 8 years, the total number of CCs and OCs are just 2,660 and 1,438 respectively and over 90 per cent of them are operating with illegal ones, Ramesh said.

He alleged that the irregularity of this scale could not have taken place without support from Bengaluru Development Minister |K J George and Chief Minister Siddaramaiah.
