Vajpayee layout waiting for Cabinet approval

Chikmagalur Urban Development Authority Chairman B Rajappa said that the work on Vajpayee layout in Uppalli and Indavara road will be started after getting approval from the State cabinet. The layout will be laid at a cost of Rs 125 crore.

He said that the residential layout will be laid in 193 acre land. The files related to the layout has been sent to the department of Urban Development, which in turn has reached the finance department for approval. The finance department has sought details on the mobilisation of fund for creating layout.

He said the Authority will ask those who would like to purchase the site to pay 25 per cent of the money. The remaining amount will be borrowed from the banks. “The proposal has to be approved by the Cabinet. I have already held discussion with the Higher Education Minister C T Ravi and other MLAs from the district,” he said.

The Vajpayee layout will have 1,802 sites. As many as 795 persons have already registered their names for the site. Applications will be invited for the remaining sites. The sites will be distributed as per the guidelines of the government.

The CDA President said two per cent will be reserved for backward community, three per cent for SC, 15 per cent for SC, five per cent for ex servicemen and his dependent family, 10 per cent for those who are in public enterprises, five per cent for the government employees, eight per cent for those who have contributed in the field of art, literature and sports and two per cent for the physically challenged.

A welcome arch has been built in Chikmagalur. The officials have visited the layouts already laid by the CDA to provide basic facilities. There are five 50x60 sites that are unsold in Chikmagalur. The sites will be auctioned and the money fetched from the auctioning will be used for providing infrastructure facilities, he said.

The Authority is developing four parks in Chikmagalur. The work on the parks are under progress.

The main doors will be built for the park and will be named after national leaders, Rajappa said.  The public should be cautious while purchasing any sites in Chikmagalur. They should ensure that the sites are approved by the CDA, he said.
