| Topic: Renovating Old House with violations in bangalore
I Need some advice on renovating(adding 600 sqft in first floor) an old house with violations.
History of the building
Site on which now house is standing was under CMC previously, later the owner has paid betterment charges in the year 2000 and has got Building plan approved for a Ground floor building of 600 sqft, he has also obtained an A Khatha from BBMP.(Since i have only this plan in hand , which is very old and says 600 sqft hose in ground floor)
Visible violations i could see
No Setback towards left
Setbacks appear to be there at the back(with some sajja doing an arial encroachment) and right.
At the front there is portico and some space , i am doubtful of 8% space, as my neighbors entrance is much ahead of mine i can say our house doesnot encroach road but may be there is no complete setback.setback.
NO Rain water harvesting.
MY questions. Your answers and experience will really help me a lot.
Now to renovate the house, if submit a new plan with actual building plus Proposed will it get rejected?
Also existing building plan is approved by CMC in 2003, will this create any problems , i know Engineer from BBMP will come and visit before approval, if he looks at old plan there are major violations.
Also when i contacted the architect , he said we don't need to give existing building plan to BBMP for approval at first, later he said let's not take the approval and simply construct the building. If anybody from BBMP visits during construction we can pay bribe.
(He said BBMP will not scrutinize building plan and we can live with violations for ever. However as a responsible owner , i am worried.)
4. Can i get a approved building plan for the proposed house by paying bribe, is it necessary or will it help when BBMP starts scrutinizing these violations?
( I don't support corruption, but my situation is bad… Govt setback regulations can not be accommodated at this stage… while buying, all the properties i saw had these violations.)

Your case is complected in my view there is no solution on gharexpert discussion form as it will try to tackle the problems of technical difficulty during construction.
In my opinion you can consult any architect who deals the BBMP for drawings approval and have relation with approval authority and settle all these by some adding alteration in the building. As rain water harvesting, it is no difficult you can do this on this stage.
2. OR Contact any building contractor who do the work of addition and alteration under the certified contractor of BBMP and guide the right way to get it done.
3 OR live as it is when any thing come than tackle it.
Better solution can be given by the man who live in Bangalore and know about BBMC and your friend circle.
