Bengaluru: National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) and other authorities concerned were directed by the High Court to ensure that constructions are not allowed in ‘no construction zone’ along national highways. This is in accordance with the Karnataka Highways Act and a circular issued in 2005 which states that there shall be no construction within 40 metres of the centre of national highway.

According to the circular issued by the government, the buildings constructed crossing the building line have to be demolished till the extent they are crossing the building line.

In a recent order, a division bench headed by Justice Satish Chandra Sharma directed demolition of constructions put up in Kaup town, Udupi district, on National Highway – 66. HC directed the government advocate to communicate the order to all the authorities concerned.
