Bylaw violators may face double property tax

If the civic body has its way, property owners who have violated building bylaws may have to pay a hefty tax. The Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) has proposed to double the property tax for owners who have deviated from the approved plan. Civic officials who turned a blind eye to the violations may be looking at jail time.
