SHRC chairman comes to rescue of 'loyal family'

The family was left in dire straits after the landlords had sold the land to a developer who had in turn handed over the land to MCC in exchange for Transferable Development Right (TDR).

Justice Nayak has directed the Mangalore City Corporation to either provide suitable rehabilitation to the family or allow the family to live on the same land on humanitarian ground, within legal framework, if it is possible. The Commissioner has also directed the Deputy Commissioner to submit a report on the same.

Deccan Herald had published an article titled ‘Reforms’ bring more miseries on ‘loyal family’ in its Saturday’s edition. Taking cognizance of the article, Justice Nayak during a grievance meet held in Mangalore on Saturday, said that it is unfortunate that a loyal tenant family is made to go through this turmoil.

Taking details from the family members Sunita (40) and her mother Yenkamma (80), Justice Nayak said that the family should have claimed right over the land decades ago but however, since the head of the family then decided not to stand against the landlord, measures should be taken now to safeguard the interest of the family.

Calling upon the MCC Commissioner Dr Harish Kumar and DC Dr N S Channappa Gowda, Justice Nayak said that both should visit the land and gather details. He further said that the MCC should rehabilitate the family before taking any decision.
