A meeting of the Mysuru Urban Development Authority (MUDA) was held under the chairmanship of D Dhruvakumar, here on Monday.
During the MUDA meeting, several key decisions were taken with regard to the penalties to be imposed on those in possession of MUDA sites, construction of houses and tax evasion on title deeds. The penalties have been revised accordingly.

A 50 per cent penalty will be imposed, based on the market value of the last title deed, on the site owners who have constructed the house and sold the house thereafter or sold the vacant site within lock-in period stipulated by MUDA.
The buyer of the vacant site or the constructed house after the lock-in period who sells the property will have to pay a penalty of 25 per cent based on the market value of the last title deed.
After GPA is registered, a 30 per cent penalty will be imposed on the buyer, based on the market value of the property during the GPA period. Buyers of MUDA auctioned sites who want the title deed will have to pay a penalty of 25 per cent, based on the last title deed.
