Realty News Roundup is PropGuide’s selection of the day’s top stories from the real estate sector.

In a significant order, a sessions court in Mumbai upheld the lower court’s order to sentence the landlord of a Kandivli building to three months' jail for refusing to repair the dilapidated building despite repeated notices from the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC). Refuting the defence that he could not afford the repairs, the court said, "But that cannot be a reason for not following the provisions of law. For this reason, the accused cannot be permitted to play with the life of others."

In a major relief to Lucknow residents seeking approval from Lucknow Development Authority (LDA) to change the land use of their property from residential to commercial, the urban body has allowed conversion charges based on LDA sector, which are 40 per cent less, instead of the circle rate. A person seeking land use change from residential to commercial needs to pay 100 per cent of property's value based on LDA sector rate as conversion charges.

The Karnataka government recently announced the launch of the chief minister model village programme. Modelled on the lines of the Pradhan Mantri Adarsh Grama Yojana, the Mukhya Mantri Adarsh Grama Yojana will see the development of 150 most backward villages in the state where at least 50 per cent of the population is from the scheduled caste and scheduled tribe community.

The Noida authority has decided to allow community centres in residential colonies to be converted to clubs for public use. To be managed and funded by the respective residential welfare associations (RWAs), the club will be allowed to be constructed only in the area specified for a particular community centre in a sector.
