The high court directed the BBMP Commissioner not to grant Transferable Development Rights (TDR) and Development Right Certificate in respect of a 40-acre land.

The high court directed the BBMP Commissioner not to grant Transferable Development Rights (TDR) and Development Right Certificate in respect of a 40-acre land.

The court was hearing a petition filed by Amrustesh N P, an advocate, who has moved the court highlighting Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike's plan to purchase a piece of land for disposing of the city's garbage wherein the land is 40 km away from the city.

The court also issued notices to the state and others.

The petitioner contended that the main intention of the landowners, who are the respondents, is to get a good price for their land not in terms of an acre but in terms of square feet measurement. They would indirectly get TDR certificates that can be indirectly used for illegal construction within the jurisdiction of the Palike.

The petitioner said under the guise of clearance of garbage the landowners/respondents are making efforts to get crores of rupees from the coportation.
