BENGALURU: Law and Parliamentary Affairs Minister T B Jayachandra on Thursday reiterated his commitment to demolish Prestige Tech Park, which is allegedly built on a storm water drain (SWD) in Bellandur.
Jayachandra, who, on Wednesday, had referred to the structure as an apartment complex, clarified on Thursday that it is the Prestige Tech Park that has come up on the SWD. He said the land for the tech park was allotted by Karnataka Industrial Areas Development Board (KIADB).
“I have instructed the BBMP Commissioner to examine the records and apprise me about the legalities. The structure clearly stands on a storm water drain, which is part of the Koramangala-Chellaghatta Valley project to take water to irrigation tanks in Kolar and Chikkaballapur districts. The structure will be razed if it is found to have encroached upon a storm water drain,” Jayachandra said on Thursday.
