I have happened to come across this website which says that BMRDA does not issue occupancy certificate and the commencement certificate is this true ?
Is OC/CC needed only for BBMP and BDA sites in Bangalore ? If there is no OC available and other documents like sale deed,latest Khata, registration documents are available for a BMRDA jurisdiction ( Hoskote) should it be fine or what other documents are needed.
Obtain commencement certificate and occupancy certificate.
Ask for copies of land registration, joint venture, Encumbrance certificate, tax paid receipts, etc.
Check whether there are any pre-existing owners.
Confirm whether the area is approved by BMMP,BDA or BMRDA.
Every builder flouts the sanctioned plan with impunity and there is no one to check. Eventually, the flat buyer suffers while the builder and corrupt officials profit from the illegality.
In many cases, though the building plans are approved, OCs are denied due to other violations. Obtaining an OC is a requirement under the Karnataka Apartment Ownership Act, 1972. The law says one cannot legally move into a building unless the developer gets an occupancy certificate from the competent authority. There are several examples of builders disappearing without giving OCs and legal water connections to housing complexes. Apprehensive of losing their homes, buyers who've invested hard-earned money move into their flats and make do with water from pumps and water tankers.
