By : M.S.Yatnatti: Editor and Video Journalist Bangalore : BDA did nothing to solve the problem for last 4 years .The BDA need to collect the original maps printed and published by commissioner of Revenue survey and land records department and find out whether really a tank was in existence Survey No. 211 of Banaswadi village, as several court cases are pending and few are won by original land owners in Karnataka high court..There may be mistake committed by someone but the thasildar must know there is limitation law exists. He cannot just act like that and issue notice to individual's .Thasildar should have issue notice to BDA .It is not a jungle raj. It is most unfortunate .If the same thing have been done by a private builder hue and cry would have taken place .But nobody is talking about BDA .4 years BDA did nothing to solve the problem.A legal tangle between BDA and sister agency Karnataka Public Land Corporation has made life miserable for over a hundred site owners at HRBR Layout. Their vacant plots have been fenced off by KPLC and they have no idea when the row will be resolved and now on January 3 evening, 150 residents of I Block were stunned when a notice from the tahasildar of Bengaluru East taluk ordered them to vacate their houses within two days as they were built on an encroached tank bed.This problem has erupted its ugly head long back but BDA slep on the matter for years and waited revenue department to hit them on their head. It's appalling that residents of HRBR Layout are being subjected to unnecessary stress through eviction notices and BDA did nothing to resolve the issue . If the authorities wake up after close to three decades and discover that houses in the layout have been built on an encroached lake bed, it's a telling comment on the inefficiencies in the system. Is limitation does not apply to revenue department The least they could have done is consulted the Bangalore Development Authority which formed this layout in the first place and figured out how to proceed in the matter and studied the documents properly . The government must step in and provide the documents and stay the eviction orders first before anything is done in this issue as limitation bars the illegal act of the thasildar.
