STATEMENTS OF OBJECTS AND REASONS
Act 33 of 1974.-The Mysore Slum Areas (Improvement and Clearance) Act,
1958 (Mysore Act 8 of 1959) which was enacted for the improvement and clearance
of slum areas in the State was struck down by the High Court and the appeal
preferred by the State Government against the decision is pending before the
Though local bodies have been effecting improvements to slums and have also
cleared a few of them, the progress made so far has been very meagre and it is
found that without adequate powers it has not been possible effectively to check the
increase in the growth of slums and also clear the slums which are unfit for human
habitation. A number of schemes for the improvement and clearance of slums are to
be quickly implemented with financial assistance given by the Government of India.
It has therefore become necessary to enact a law immediately to provide for the
improvement and clearance of slums in the State.
Hence this Bill.
(Published in the Karnataka Gazette Part IV - 2A (Extraordinary) No. 213 dated
Amending Act 21 of 1978.-The name of the State was changed from Mysore to
Karnataka with effect from 1-11-1973. By the Karnataka Adaptation of Laws Order,
1973, the word "Mysore" occurring in various enactments, rules and notifications,
then in force was substituted wherever necessary by the word "Karnataka". In the
Acts specified in Schedule I introduced in the Legislature earlier to 1st November,
1973 but published thereafter the word "Mysore" continue to exist. Therefore it is
proposed to make the necessary consequential amendments to the said Acts also.
Hence this Bill.
