No new BDA projects

Bangalore, Jan 31,2012, DHNS:

The State Budget 2012 is not likely to include any new project of the Bangalore Development Authority (BDA). According to sources privy to the pre-budget meeting held on Tuesday, the projects that figured in earlier budgets would continue in the coming financial year, without any additional grants from the government.

The primary focus of the BDA this year, will be to settle the much disputed Arkavathy Layout, apart from forming the much anticipated Kempegowda Layout. Also, the BDA has been given the task of building 30,000 quarters for the Economically Weaker Section (EWS). Sources stated that a decision was taken to build hostel facilities for the SC/ST students in the City.

Another major decision taken was the construction of the 65-km Peripheral Ring Road in two phases under a public-private partnership model. However, sources stated that no discussion was held on the compensation issue for which farmers, who have lost their land, have been agitating for.

Other issues that were discussed include development of four markets by the BDA in Jayanagar, Malleswaram, Seshadripuram and KR Puram. It was also stated that the 123 acres of Karnataka Rehabilitation Centre that was notified for development had been withdrawn following the High Court order on Monday.
