'G' category sites: HC allow 54 allottees to proceed with construction

The Karnataka High Court on Thursday permitted 54 allottees of the G category sites to go ahead with the construction after Justice A M Farooq committee submitted their fifth report in relation to allotment of 60 such sites.

Hearing a PIL challenging irregularities in the allotment of G category sites, Chief Justice S K Mukherjee and Justice R B Budihal directed Bangalore Development Authority (BDA) to execute the sale deed in favour of 54 allottees.

As the committee report mentioned that the 54 allottees have been entitled to retain their sites, the bench directed the BDA to execute sale deed in favour of these allottees in one month, to those sites whose date of execution of lease-cum-sale agreement has completed 10 years.

The court said that among the 54 allottees, if the date of execution of lease-cum-sale agreement has not completed 10 years, then the BDA should execute the sale deeds only after the date of execution of the lease-cum-sale agreements completes 10 years.

With regard to the remaining 6 allottees, the bench said that as the committee has not made any recommendations for retention of sites due to reason that have been indicated in the report, the court will consider their cases subsequently. The bench adjourned the next hearing to April 26, 2017 when the committee will submit its next report.
