I am purchasing a site from CMC limits and it is also a co-operative society site. The query is that the bank where I had applied for loan told me that this site will come under green belt and they cannot fund for this site. My query is for this site, the Katha certificate is there, recent tax paid receipts are there, encumbrance is there, GPA is there and almost the documents are all correct and one more, people have constructed houses next to this layout, and there is BDA Layout coming next to 0.5 km from this site and there are roads, lights, water, and there is no problem at all. I do not know why the bank is telling that this site will come under green belt. Please furnish all the details as to how this comes under green belt. I am speaking about the Karmikara Raitara Sangha and Dwarakanagar Welfare Association, which is located in Channasandra near Uttarahalli.

You should have verified the land use and zonal regulations before purchasing the site. The comprehensive development plan has categorized the city and its surroundings into various zones such as residential, commercial, industrial and green belt. Only specified activities are permitted in zones residential activity is not permitted in Green Belt Area. Only agricultural and allied activities are allowed in green belt area. You may verify the maps available at BDA to know whether the particular property falls under green belt area or not and if does not fall under green belt area, you may convince your bank accordingly.

Q:- There are two houses in a compound. I am staying in the house which is behind my cousin's. To reach the road we have been using the passage that runs through my cousin's property for more than 25 years. He sold his property to another person without our knowledge and the new owner is obstructing our passage to the road. There is no other alternative route to the road. What shall we do?

Q:- Certain hidden facts like pending cases, prior agreements, government notification of the property cannot be traced easily by verification of the documents. How can these hidden factors be uncov┬Čered, and what should a purchaser do to protect himself against these factors?

Q:- My son wants to purchase a plot near Horamavu, but on verification of CDP map, the plot was found to be in green belt area. I have been advised that non-agriculturist is not eligible to purchase agricultural lands. The present owner assures me that the problem can be solved by registering the land in Sq, fts. Instead of guntas. My father is a farmer. Many such transactions have taken place. Can my son purchase this land and construct a house. There are also chances of land being notified by BDA, in that case what are the consequences?
