BENGALURU: The Bengaluru Development Authority has invited farmers whose lands have been acquired for developing sites and people waiting for allotment of sites in Arkavathy Layout for its special board meeting on November 15.
BDA Commissioner Rajkumar Khatri on Wednesday said the meeting has been called to sort out all the issues.
On Wednesday, MLA Suresh Kumar along with allottees waiting for their sites and farmers waiting for compensation, staged a protest outside the BDA office.
Khatri said all issues will be sorted out by dialogue on November 15. Later, Khatri told reporters that BDA had identified 43 acres in six villages, including Chalekere, Dasarahalli, Hebbal and Kempapura, in Arkavathy Layout. BDA also served notices to farmers owning 15 acres and received response from them.
“We will invite farmers and site allottees. The matter will be placed before the board and we will try to sort out all issues. After the meeting, we will decide our next step,” he added.
A dedicated helpdesk has been set up in the BDA office premises to cater to Arkavathy Layout. “It’s a one-point contact where officials will be available,” he said.
On the development of Peripheral Ring Road, Khatri said the Cabinet has approved to take up the project through a Special Purpose Vehicle. “We have submitted the draft on SPV and its functions. It will come before the Cabinet. It is up to them to take it further,” he added.
