Next round of demolition on September 13
Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike will launch the next round of demolition drive to clear encroachments on stormwater drains in the city on September 13. The survey to identify encroachments in 35 different locations across Bengaluru will begin on September 6.

The director of Survey Settlement and Commissioner of Land Records has deputed 23 surveyors to BBMP to identify encroachments. Six surveyors have already reported for work.
BBMP Chief Engineer (stormwater drain) Siddegowda said the marking of encroaching buildings will start on Tuesday.

“At present, we intend to remove only those encroachments that cause flooding. The joint commissioners and chief engineers have been told to identify flood-prone areas where removal of encroachments is a must. There could be some major structures, too,” said Siddegowda, without sharing details of major encroachers. The chief engineer said marking buildings may take at least a week and the demolition of structures would start on September 13.

In a recent meeting, the BBMP commissioner directed the joint commissioners and chief engineers of their respective zones to prepare an action plan for clearing encroachments. Sources in the Palike said Prasad had directed the zonal officers and engineers to identify structures along stormwater drains where demolition is warranted.
