Building owner gets stay against metro station

Staff Reporter
BANGALORE: The Karnataka High Court on Wednesday ordered status quo on possession of land at Rajajinagar for construction of metro rail station by Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Ltd. (BMRCL).

Justice Nagmohan Das passed the order on a petition by Sharada who had challenged the acquisition of her building on 10th Cross, West of Chord Road, Nagpura Ward.

Ms. Sharada said she had several years ago purchased the site from the Bangalore Development Authority (BDA). Subsequently, she said she had applied and obtained permission from the Government to convert the residential site into a commercial site.

She had obtained a plan from the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) for construction of a commercial complex.

She said when she approached the BBMP for modifying the construction plan, she was asked to get a no-objection certificate from BMRCL.

In her petition, Ms. Sharada said she was unaware that her building had been acquired. She said she had not been given an opportunity of hearing.
