BANGALORE: On account of widespread public resistance to widening of Avenue Road and surrounding areas, Bangalore City Corporation (BCC) has reduced the maximum extent of widening to 10 feet as against the proposed 30 feet. Traders had expressed apprehension that they would lose their livelihood if they were displaced.

The BCC has curtailed widening of roads to ten feet on Arale Pet, Avenue Road, OTC Road, Balepet, BVK Iyengar Road, A S Char Road and Goodshed Road. These roads would be widened by ten feet more than the existing width, said BCC sources.

Otherwise, the Transfer of Development Rights (TDR) scheme of Bangalore City Corporation (BCC) for acquiring land for roads has finally begun to find acceptance among the people.

Binny Mills on Magadi Road has relinquished 14,962 sq-ft of land for road widening. In an exemplary move, the mill has agreed to take up the roadwork from Binny Circle to Leprosy Hospital at its own cost. The Mill will also handle any possible litigation arising in the process of implementation of project and even pay compensation towards any damage to private property.

Sources in BCC said that the mill made a proposal to this effect in April last year. With TDR rules coming into force early this year, the mill would be given floor area compensation two times the land relinquished. They added that the ‘Deed of Relinquishment’ has already been executed.


Twelve more roads have been added to the list of roads identified to be widened under TDR scheme. These roads will be taken up in the first phase of the project, said the sources in the Corporation.

The roads are Siddaiah Road, Sudhama Nagar I Main, Dinnur Main Road, Uttarahalli Main Road, Hosakerehalli Main Road, Okalipuram Main Road, JC Road, Commissionerate Road, Race Course Road, Kasturba Road, Suranjan Das Road and Infantry Road.
