Chief Minister Jagadish Shettar on Wednesday said the State government has stopped processing allotment of ‘G’ category BDA sites, the orders for which were issued prior to Karnataka High Court judgement in 2010 stating that the government does not have powers to allot sites.

Replying to Goolihatti Shekar (Ind), who alleged that the government has allotted 48 ‘G’ category BDA sites after the High Court order in the Legislative Assembly, he said about 325 sites were allotted prior to the Court order.

Of them, 48 were under various stages of allotment, allotment fee was taken with respect to nine cases, sale deed executive process was on with respect to 19 cases and in 20 cases the allottees had sought alternative sites, he added.
