Chief Minister N Dharam Singh on Monday said the government will keep its promise of commencing the Arkavathy Layout site allotment process to applicants from January next year.

Speaking after inaugurating a park built by the Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB) at Rajmahal Vilas Extension in Bangalore, Mr Singh said BDA officials were working on a warfooting to meet the deadline.

The government had stalled the tendering process of Arkavathy Layout development work in July this year, bringing the project to a grinding halt and creating anxiety among applicants. The BDA has received Rs 690 crore in deposits from the applicants. “The applicants need not worry.

The government is committed to start the site allotment process in January,” the chief minister said.

He said the state cabinet will soon take a decision on the Rs 3,000 crore project to augment water supply to Bangalore city proposed to be taken up with assistance from the Japan Bank for International Cooperation. He urged BWSSB officials to plug distribution losses and said Rs 50 crore would be earmarked for the purpose.

The chief minister reiterated that a Bangalore Metropolitan Authority would be set up soon to enure proper co-ordination between the stake holders of civic amenities like BMP, BDA and BWSSB.
