Beware of real-estate agents, says DC

Addressing a press meet, Deputy Commissioner V Ponnuraj said the mahithi kendra will be set up jointly by the Mangalore City Corporation, Mangalore Urban Development Authority, Revenue Department, and Sub-Registrar’s Office.

He said service will be provided to prospective buyers in two phases. In the first phase, people will be given information about the procedures involved in the purchase of land and the documents required for the transaction. If prospective buyers proceeded in the prescribed manner, they will be given approval in the second phase, he added.

Stating that some real-estate agents are were involved in the sale of 2-3 cents of land to poor people and the buyer must be cautious while purchasing the land. He called upon the people to purchase land in authorised extensions.  Owing to the improper way of purchasing land, the area lacked basic infrastructure such as roads and underground drainage, he said.

The real estate agents purchase the land from the farmers and convert it to sites and sell without providing underground drainage facilities, and road. For the distribution of RTC, three Bhoomi centres will be started in Mangalore, he said.
