'Land pooling' for Mangala Corniche: MUDA Chairman

It will increase the land value

There are proposals to acquire land for the upcoming Managala Corniche through a unique concept called ‘pooling’ said Mangalore Urban Development Authority Chairman Ramesh S.

Speaking on the topic 'Vision for Mangalore 2021', a talk organised by St Aloysius College Alumni Association, Ramesh said that land pooling will minimise losses to individual owners and will increase land value tremendously. With better roads coming up, the value of the land will go up. It is a win-win situation, he said.

“The proposal is at discussion-level. The proposal will come soon after certain amendments in the act. In case land pooling policy is adopted in Mangalore to acquire land, then it will be the first city in Karnataka,” he said.

He also said that the system is more democratic and the owner as well as the person will benefit.

Under Mangala Corniche, 32 kilometers of road will be developed and estimated cost of the project will be Rs 8,000 to 10,000 crore, he said.

The talk on the upcoming multi-level car-parking is in its final stage. With this, one can park around 800 to 1000 cars in the car parking area which will come up in the old private bus stand at Hampankatta, he said.

Design and Planning Counsel Pvt Ltd Director Shobit Tayal said that he has done a critical evaluation of the MUDA Master Plan II.

He also presented a power-point presentation on developing Mangalore. The audience were given an opportunity to interact with the MUDA Chairman. Many presented various problems, especially the delay in getting their applications processed at MUDA. Ramesh said that steps will be taken to ensure that there will not be delay in this process.
