District admn stops resort construction

The AC passed the order following the visit to the site by a team led by himself, in charge Tahsildar H C Chamu and revenue officials.

“The land where resort is being constructed was a farm land. It was converted by violating the Land Reforms Act. The environment will be affected with the construction of resort. Following the complaint from the public, I visited the spot,” Ravi said.

The resort is coming up on 16 acre land. The resort owner had purchased the land in 2008. It was a converted land when it was purchased. However, while it was sold in 1993-94, it was a farm land. By violating Land Reforms Act Section 79 (A) and (B), the farm land was converted for commercial use.

The temporary fencing of the land behind Virajpet Government Hospital was vacated by the police following the direction of assistant commissioner Ravi.
