BDA to clear backlog for 30x40 sites

BDA to clear backlog for 30x40 sites
Of 50,000, Maximum Number Are Small-Dimension Plots

Bangalore: The biggest layout being planned by the Bangalore Development Authority with 50,000 sites will aim at clearing the rush for 30 ft by 40 ft dimension sites. The layout will have a large number of plots of this dimension, so that the backlog could be cleared in one go.

Following chief minister H D Kumaraswamy’s announcement that BDA should provide sites to the old residents of Bangalore, the authorities have decided to devise some mechanism to cater to the applicants who have applied more than five to six times without any luck.

“Whenever applications are invited, nearly 60 per cent will be for 30x40 ft sites. Hence, the cut-off in terms of number of attempts and the age of the person is huge. This time, when we form the new layout, our emphasis will be more on small-dimension plots so that in one go, the long-time applicants can be allotted sites,’’ officials told The Times of India.
The new layout will be taken up once the site allotments at Arkavathy layout are completed. The BDA has identified three places in Bangalore south, east and west zones and has to decide on it. Though Kengeri was touted as the next destination for BDA, the officials are apprehensive because it comes in the green belt area. Areas like Whitefield and KR Puram too are doing the rounds for locating the biggest layout in the country.

The BDA has already allotted 2,000 sites in Arkavathy layout in the first phase, in
which 20,000 sites have been planned.

Work is on in full swing at the layout, with earth-movers working overtime. Of the 2,750 acres notified for the layout, nearly 748 acres still remain disputed and the high court has ordered the BDA to hear the owners of this disputed land, which are basically revenue patches. The BDA will complete the hearing process in the next two months.
