BENGALURU: District Development Coordination and Monitoring Committee (DISHA) chairman and former Union Minister DV Sadananda Gowda directed officials of the Bengaluru zilla panchayat to submit details on cancellation of 2,711 houses allotted under various housing schemes in the city. 

Gowda said of the 4,579 houses allotted for Bengaluru ZP, 1,739 houses have been handed over to beneficiaries, and 2,711 houses constructed under the Rajiv Gandhi Housing Scheme have been cancelled. Gowda sought an explanation in this regard from the officials.
