High Court verdict on construction
Bangalore real estate is growing at a rapid pace and construction activities are happening on full swing – not only inside the city, but also in the outskirts. To address the related adverse effects of blazing real estate in the city, the Karnataka High court has come up with a set of regulations for construction activity. The purpose behind the regulations is that the residents of the city get less disturbed by the construction fervor.
The new verdict relaxes the earlier order which banned construction work between 6 pm and 8 am. The new verdict says that there are certain construction activities which are permitted between 6 pm-10 pm and between 6 am-8 am. Here is the list of activities which are permitted by the court.
6 AM to 8AM
6 PM to 10 PM
|Earth work||Ground levelling, bush clearance||Ground levelling|
|Shuttering work||Activity not allowed||Activity not allowed|
|Steel typing works||Placing, shifting and lifting of steel||Placing, shifting and lifting of steel|

CREDAI agrees to bring down the noise
The relaxation came as a relief for the developers, who had accepted to adopt the code of ethics undertaken by the Confederation of Real Estate Developers’ Association of India (CREDAI), Bangalore and use machinery to adopt to minimize the noise.
The earlier decision of the High Court was in response to public interest litigation (PIL) filed regarding the noise that residents have to endure due to construction work. As apartments, malls, townships are being increasingly built up in the city, it has become necessary to address the problems related to the construction activities. Now that the order is being revised, hopes are anew that developers can continue with the construction while causing least disturbance to the residents.
