Orion Mall clarifies on encroachment charge

 In response to our report on Tuesday, Vishal Mirchandani, CEO of Orion Mall Management Company Ltd said Orion Mall did not come in the way of the rajakaluve.

“The mall has come up on a property earlier owned by Kirloskar Electric and they in turn had acquired the land from CITB (BDA) between 1953 and 1969. We have a 1995 survey map issued by the officer of Director of Land Records (Government of Karnataka) to prove there is no nala (feeder canal), let alone a rajakaluve in the property,” the statement pointed out.

The statement also notes that if charges of encroachment are made on properties allotted by government authorities like BDA, using a 1904 village map, then most of the city landmarks and many residential sites in layouts formed by the BDA (Indiranagar, Jayanagar, RMV, etc) and properties opposite Orion Mall (like Iskcon Temple, KSPCB building, etc) can also be affected.
