BANGALORE: The High Court, on Wednesday, quashed the BDA notification for the acquisition of land for the proposed Hi-Tech City around Bangalore.

The Court ruled that BDA had no power to acquire the land for industrial purposes.

Justice Hulavadi G Ramesh quashed the preliminary and final notification issued by the BDA in 2003 and 2005 respectively.

Allowing the writ petition of C Ramesh and others challenging the notification, the Court said that only the Karnataka Industrial Area Development Board (KIADB) has the power to acquire land for industrial purposes.

BDA had acquired 1,522 acres at Bellandur, Kulkondanahalli, Dalla Kunneli, Junna Sandra, Kasavanahalli, Parappana Agrahara, Konappana Agrahara, Naganathapura and Kudlu for the Hi-Tech City.

The petitioner challenged the notification stating that since the land was meant for industrial purposes it had to be acquired by the KIADB.
