'Intervention' costs Rs 9.48 cr for BBMP

Firing a salvo against the BJP government that is buffeted by land scam allegations, Nagaraj said here on Friday under the administrator, the Palike went soft on Sigma Buildcon’s violation of building plans.

The company had obtained licence to construct a building with basement, ground floor and two storeys. But it built an eight-storeyed structure and sought post-facto approval by the Palike. The BBMP levied a penalty of Rs 9.48 crore for deviation from the sanctioned plan.

Residential purpose

The land on which the building came up was supposed to be used for residential purpose where as a shopping complex was allowed to be constructed there. The officials revised the building plan even without receiving the penalty, Nagaraj claimed.

He said there have been several illegalities during the rule of the administrator at the BBMP.
