39 more allottees can build homes on 'G' category sites

The high court of Karnataka on Thursday permitted 39 more allottees of ‘G’ category sites to go ahead with construction of their houses after the Justice A M Farooq committee submitted the second report on the allotment of 60 sites.

Hearing a PIL against irregularities in the allotment of ‘G’ category sites, Chief Justice S K Mukherjee and Justice R B Budihal directed the Bengaluru Development Authority (BDA) to execute the sale deed in favour of 39 allottees. In the previous hearing, the court had permitted 53 allottees to construct their houses after the committee’s first report.

In the second report, the committee found that 39 allottees are entitled to retain their sites. The court directed the BDA to execute the sale deed in a month for sites whose date of execution of the lease-cum-sale agreement has completed 10 years. Among the 39 allottees, if the date of execution of the lease-cum-sale agreement has not completed 10 years, the BDA should execute the sale deeds only after completion of the period and a month thereafter.

With regard to the remaining 21 allottees, the court ruled that it would consider their cases separately as the committee had not made any recommendation on retention of sites for reasons as indicated in the report. The next hearing will be on February 13, 2017, when the committee will submit its next report.
