Bengaluru, Dec 13: The Karnataka High Court on Tuesday refused to entertain a petition that challenged a law regularising certain types of unauthorised developments and constructions across the state under the Akrama-Sakrama scheme. A batch of petitions had been filed challenging this law and the same has been dismissed by the Karnataka High Court.

A Division Bench comprising Chief Justice Subhro Kamal Mukherjee and Justice Budihal rejected the petitions. As a result of this order the law will remain in force and constructions under the Akrama-Sakrama scheme can be regularised.

The state of Karnataka had defended this scheme stating that it was a one-type measurement as per the scheme which had been upheld by the Supreme Court while hearing a matter relating to Tamil Nadu. The petitioners had however argued that the scheme was unconstitutional. Some of the petitioners also said that the fee fixed for the regularisation was discriminatory.
