Bangalore, Dec 6 (UNI) The Karnataka Government will decide on regularisation of structures built against norms only after the High Court's verdict, Governor Rameshwar Thakur said today.

Mr Thakur told reporters after an Executive Committee meeting that the issue was discussed and the Advocate General had been asked to submit 'the State's view' before the court, hearing petitions against the scheme, which had received widespread protest both from political parties and the public.

The case was presently within the jurisdiction of the state government and it would be referred to the Centre if there was a need for any amendment to the rules in the scheme, he said.

The scheme was initiated by the previous government to regularise illegal constructions across the state.

The meeting was held, following a High Court directive asking the government to reconsider the provisions of the scheme in the interest of the public.
