Projects In Progress
A plot of about 20-Acre of land was purchased in the years 2009 & 2010. Initially, Bengaluru Development Authority (BDA) had notified to acquire this land for their residential colony. After persistent efforts by IRWO and Railway Board, BDA has released the land from acquisition in August, 2015. Building plans were submitted to BDA and were under examination by them for approval in the BDA Board meeting. Finally, BDA asked to super-impose the land-use as per BDA’s Road Plan 2015 on IRWO’s lay out plan. This resulted in not only reducing the area of the plot, but also damaging the integrity of the plot by dividing it into pieces. MS had spoken to the Chief Secretary, Government of Karnataka, to help IRWO in the matter. Modified building plans have been submitted to BDA for approval.
