Bangalore, Dec 6 (UNI) Karnataka Governor Rameshwar Thakur today said that the state government will take its decision on regularisation of violations in building constructions only after the verdict of the High Court.
Mr Thakur told reporters after a meeting of the Executive Committee meeting that the issue was discussed threadbare at the meeting and the Advocate General had been asked to submit the State's view before the court which is hearing petitions against the scheme which had received widespread protest both from political parties and the people.
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 sheme, he said.
The scheme was initiated by the previous government to regularise illegal constructions across the state.
The meeting was held today following a High Court directive that asked the state government to reconsider the provisions of the scheme in the interest of the public.
The scheme had been witnessing a widespread protest demanding it to make a people-friendly from the city and also from other places of the state.
