This is the irony of the civic authorities. Anyone can know this and see this, but the Civic authorities (BCC) have gone blind.
The Karnataka Housing board (KHB) is constructing huge towers near the railway over bridge, and form an RTI application it has come out that the Corporation has not given the requisite permission to KHB build the towers, even then the construction work is in full swing with work being done day and night. To, top the icing on the cake Shri. S. G. Patil, Commissioner of BCC did not even know that such construction was in progress.
Construction started in late October and the building will be utilized for residential purposes for the government employees. The KHB has sought permission for the construction from BCC but they haven’t got it still.
The BCC goes on a demolition drive when they see small encroachments but are they blind here?
