Plea to implement BMIC forthwith

All India Manufacturers’ Organisation has again moved the Karnataka High Court seeking a direction to the State government to implement the Bangalore-Mysore Infrastructure Corridor project immediately.

All India Manufacturers’ Organisation has again moved the Karnataka High Court seeking a direction to the State government to implement the Bangalore-Mysore Infrastructure Corridor project immediately.

In its petition, the AIMO pointed out that the High Court, while allowing an earlier petition filed by the organisation in 2005, had directed the government “to execute the BMIC project as conceived originally.” The government, the petitioner alleged, has not taken any action to implement the project as directed by the High Court and the Supreme Court.

They also contended that the government, which had been alleging that excess land had been acquired for Bangalore-Mysore Infrastructure Corridor project, was now going ahead to acquire more than 60,000 acres of land for its five major township projects.

The AIMO sought a direction from the Court to restrain the government from taking up its proposed townships at Nandagudi, Ramanagara, Bidadi, Solur, Sathnoor until the BMIC project was completed. The petitioner has also sought a direction to appoint an eminent person or group of persons with all such powers and authority as commissioners, to execute the BMIC project, which has been pending from last several years.

Declined

A division bench comprising Chief Justice Cyriac Joseph and Justice B S Patil, which heard the petition, admitted it only to consider one of the directions - to execute the project without any delay - sought by the petitioner.

However, the bench declined to entertain at this stage the plea for restraining the government from implementing its township projects and to appoint court commissioners.

The bench directed the government to file its statement within a month on the petitioner’s plea for implementing the project without any delay and adjourned further hearing to January 24.
