Requesting BDA to transfer the Green Area / Park( Plot 2) at LIC Colony HAL 3rd Stage to BBMP, So that BBMP develops a Park and Play Ground at Plot 2

This petition made change with 171 supporters!


Matter of Importance: Despite High Court Orders BDA has not handed over many Green Area / Park to BBMP for use as Park, Playground in the City of Bengaluru. They have allocated to Profit Making organizations in the guise of Sangha or NGOs and have allowed them to build on this land creating nuisance and reducing the Green Area in the CBD.

One Such instance is at HAL 3rd Stage, L I C Colony, Jeevana Bhimanagar, Plot No. 2 Green Area

This locality has 1500 Houses and this Plot 2 is located in the center of the locality. When these Residential area was build by L I C in 1992, L I C had earmarked it as Green Area for getting the approval for the locality sanction plan. In 1984 CDP this was designated as Park and Play Ground.

Present state of affairs at this plot is drug peddlers, illegal occupant living there, cattle feeds, garbage, romeos, walk around in the evening and make our residents insecure to even take a walk, leave alone sit in that area and its periphery. Police have limited control on the drug peddling that goes on there with the help of illegal resident in that plot in the name of sangha.

There are 25 CA ( Civic Amenity) sites for purposes of Community welfare in this area, and this is the ONLY Plot which is Green Area.  In this situation, BDA assuming it as a CA site allocated by violation of its own rules and procedures, to 4 Sangha's  for 30 year lease in year 2003, without even consulting LIC and its residents, nor with a public notification.

The residents of the L I C Locality filed a petition in the HC and followed it for past 10 years and in Year 2013, HC ruled it as Green Area and till CDP 2015.  Even after 2 years of HC ruling BDA has not transferred the area for Park and Play ground for development to BBMP despite contempt to court order and Plead by Local MP,  MLA, Urban Development Ministers to BDA and BBMP and Corporator requests.

Instead, they took notice of the 4 sangha's request and are in process of continuing the lease of this land, to BUILD Concrete structures in this area, against the HC ruling. This despite multiple representations to the BDA and Govt including the Chief Minister.

Recently BDA has approved the request of one of the Sangha to build in this area against the HC ruling, and without public notice, against its own rules and regulations. Thus for benefit of few who are running the Sangha, BDA has flouted not only HC ruling but also NOT taken note of public interest and even local corporator and MLA requests and converted / trying to convert Green Area in violation of CDP.

This is against the law of land and one of MANY instances where BDA has flouted rules and making this beautiful City a place of concrete and affecting basic tenants of life in the city. We need all your help to make it a strong public voice against such conversion of Green area in the city
