If it is kere it is private kere and if Government wants to use it let they pay compensation to original owners and BDA should not be allowed to make any layout. If BDA think that its agricultural land then let it pay compensation to farmers who own the land in question and in any case land cannot be used by government and BDA without paying any compensation .BDA commissioner andLand acquisition officers were requested by farmers and original owners of survey Number 66ofKodigehalliBangalore North Talukatopay compensation for 12 acres of land as they are in possession and they are the real owners as per the order Revenue Commissioner in No.RA 276/42-43Dated 20-11-1944.But But BDA is misusing its powers and tress passing in the kere katte land without paying compensation and which was privately owned : Special DC Bangalorestatesin respect of survey Number 66ofKodigehalliBangalore North Talukait is Government tank and Farmers state as per No.RA 276/42-43Dated 20-11-1944., it was private tank constructed in their own land with loans from maharaja Government and Tank was dilapidated after long use and it naturally became again agricultural landand BDA is using this kere katte area for Kemegowda layout without paying any compensation to original owners.
