Because according to this policy, the colonizers who developed illegal colonies will deposit composition fees @ 0.5% of collector rate (minimum of Rs.25000 per acre upto maximum of Rs.100000 per acre) for the illegal colonies of before 17-08-2007 and for the colonies which were developed after 17-08-2007, the fee is 2.0% of the collector rate (from minimum Rs.100000 to Rs.500000).
Moreover, Govt. is imposing fine on innocent people who are taken into trap by illegal colonizers in connivance with Govt. machinery, who are aggrieved due to negligence of Govt. machinery. These innocent people should be compensated by the Govt. for their loss due to Govt. negligence but to the contrary, Govt. is imposing fine on these innocent people.
This fees which is to be deposited by plot owners in illegal colonies is varied from Rs.3,750 to Rs.2,50,000/- depending on collector rate and size of plot. In this policy, Govt. admitted that plot owners in these illegal colonies are aggrieved of trap.
But why Govt. instead of compensating these innocent aggrieved people, putting fine on them. It is more interesting that this is no where mentioned in this policy that where the money, which is being collected from colonizers and plot holders, will be spent, means it is not sure that the money will be spent in that very colony.
It means it is very much possible that this money will be used to fill the empty treasury. It is mentioned in the policy that Municipal Council will be responsible to provide basic amenities in illegal colonies within municipal limits after their regularization but municipal council is already responsible to provide basic amenities within its limits.
Govt. is so interested to collect this money that colonies in small villages are also instructed to submit the fee and it is mentioned in the policy that if any colonizer or plot owner fails to submit this fee, then amount will be recovered as arrear of land revenue.
In this policy the Govt. decided to collect fees from all colonies dividing them into two types i.e. after 2007 and before 2007. In category before 2007, all illegal colonies are covered but the original act was implemented only in 1995.
It is also very much interesting that the Govt. is compounding the offence of selling illegal colonies only by accepting money from the offenders, in which the Govt. officials are also involved. It is pertinent to mention here that municipal council approved maps for construction in illegal colonies within municipal limits.
The state government is itself for illegal colonies and it should accept its responsibility and should withdraw this policy of collecting huge amounts from innocent people. Because planned development in these illegal colonies is not possible because for planned development there should be 35% vacant area which is not available in these colonies.
