BENGALURU: The hopes of more than 3,700 allottees of Arkavathy Layout had soared after the sub-registrar’s office issued sale deeds to their respective properties in the past few months. However, with some of these sale deeds being cancelled, they are now uncertain over the fate of their sites.
More than a 100 allottees raised pertinent questions regarding the sale deeds at a meeting with the BDA commissioner Rajkumar Khatri on Wednesday. “BDA has cancelled several sale deeds, conniving with a sub-registrar in north Bengaluru, who has been transferred. This means they have no guarantee of their site now,“ said Bhaskar Reddy , who has been allotted 2,400 sq ft in Sampigehalli. Reddy got his site in 2003, which he registered in 2007. While 3,728 allottees have been given sale deeds, problems pertaining to denotification has affected registration of around 1,200 sites.
Khatri assured the citizens that a few alternative sites would be allotted by December. On August 5, he had stated that the BDA would acquire 200 acres to form 800 sites of 2,400 sq ft dimension, to be allotted as alternative sites. On Wednesday, he said they had acquired 43 acres so far.
“This looks like an eyewash, since BDA has to allot free sites from these plots as per the new rule,“ said Reddy The citizens also pointed out that many corner plots and sites along the highways in Arkavathy Layout had been denotified. BDA was claiming that beneficiaries of the land owners were laying claim to these sites.
