Booklet on govt land encroachment

Booklet on govt land encroachment

The Bangalore Urban district administration will come out with a booklet on illegal encroachment of government land including forests in Anekal taluk.

Already an extensive survey of encroached government land is underway. Deputy Commissioner (Bangalore Urban) G C Prakash camped in Anekal to ensure that the work is executed without any “influence”.

Prakash told Deccan Herald that he held a meeting with the taluk and panchayat officers along with surveyors to ensure that the work is executed properly.

“We will recover every inch of government land. We will not spare schools, anganwadi centres, houses and commercial buildings if our survey shows that they are on the government land,” said Prakash.

Once the survey is done, said Prakash, the list of encroached government land would be brought out in the form of a booklet and the same would be put up on the district administration’s  website.

Show cause notices to around 100 persons have been issued as per the court directions, asking why their properties, constructed on government or forest land, should not be demolished, he added.
