BANGALORE: Continuing its drive to recover encroached land, the Bangalore District Administration on Saturday conducted an eviction drive in all its taluks and recovered 76 acres worth over Rs 150 crore.

Most of the recovered land is in the North Additional taluk, said officials.

Speaking to Express Tahsildar Balappa said , “In Bellahallli’s survey number 12, about 33 acres of quarry land was recovered from encroachers. The BBMP is the owner of the land and it is planning to set up a waste processing plant there. It is an ideal location as waste water will not seep into the earth. Now that the land is recovered, it will be handed over to the Palike.”

“In Hessarghatta hobli’s Kondashetty Halli, 10.3 acres on survey number 29 was recovered. Illegal layouts were being formed here. Around nine acres was recovered from farmers who had acquired land for cultivation,” he added. 

In all, 52.35 acres of land worth  over Rs 120 crore was recovered in the North Additional taluk. Similarly 11.25 acres was recovered in Bangalore South taluk, 13.3 acres in Anekal taluk  and about two acres in Bangalore East taluk was recovered.

Sources said the District Administration is considering booking the land grabbers under Section 192A of the Karnataka Land Revenue Act.
