BANGALORE: The Karnataka High Court has directed Nandi Infrastructure Corridor Enterprises (NICE) not to change the alignment of the peripheral road at Gottigere and to adhere to the outer development plan (ODP).
While hearing a petition by J P Suhel, Sheela and others, Justice Rammohan Reddy directed the state government not to demolish the property of the petitioner on survey number 101/6 and 3 at Gottigere as it was not needed for the project. The NICE should not change the alignment of the road. However, the court allowed NICE to continue the project as per ODP.
In another petition, the court observed that any development at Gottigere, Basavanapura and Pillaganahalli was subject to the final outcome of the writ petition.
The petitioner has challenged the acquisition notice of Karnataka Industrial Area Development Board (KIADB). The petitioner has stated that the government has acquired additional land, which is not required at all for the project.
