If people are to get justice in cases involving the Bangalore Development Authority (BDA), there should be a mechanism to dispose them of quickly, said Justice N K Patil.
At the inauguration of the Bruhat Rashtriya Lok Adalat organised here by the BDA and Karnataka State Legal Services Authority, Patil said more such adalats will be conducted.
BDA Commissioner T Sham Bhat said cases taken up at the adalat will be resolved then and there. “Of the 8,813 sites in Arkavathy Layout, 3,600 are litigation-free. Now, 1,400 cases will be addressed in two days. Efforts will be made to address 5,000 cases by this month,” he added.
Justice Narayanaswamy asked people to utilise the opportunity and asked officials to discharge their duties in a fair manner.
Three courts have been set up to resolve cases involving the BDA. While 100 cases related to Arkavathy Layout have been posted in Court Hall No. 1, 50 cases related to possession certificate in the second court. The third court will hear 96 cases related to khata transfer and incentive sites.
