January 6, 2022

Mysore/Mysuru: The Mysuru Urban Development Authority (MUDA) yesterday reclaimed five sites from illegal occupants following a Court directive in its favour.

In a press release, MUDA has stated that illegal construction had come up on the disputed land in Vijayanagar Fourth Stage First Phase adjoining the Hinkal Ring Road. The issue reached the Court which ruled in MUDA’s favour. Following this, MUDA officials launched an operation and demolished the illegal structures that were built on the land.

In all, there were five properties numbering 1283, 1284, 1285, 1286 and 1287, each measured 50 x 80 ft. The estimated market value of the land is Rs. 25 crore. The demolition drive was carried out based on the order issued by MUDA Commissioner Dr. D.B. Natesh with Police protection.

Later, the MUDA officials erected a sign board indicating that MUDA owned the land. Though a couple of sheds had been constructed on the said land, no one came to oppose the demolition drive and it is not clear who had encroached upon the land.

There has not been any case of certain unscrupulous elements selling the land to some hapless parties after faking documents, said officials.

MUDA Superintending Engineer Shankar, Land Acquisition Officer Harshavardhan and Executive Engineers Mohan and Sunil, Zonal Officers K.R. Mohan, Kiran, H.P. Shivanna, Nagesh, K.C. Ravi, Shankar and Raghavendra (electrical) supervised    the operation.
