The highly anticipated Kanbargi residential scheme, proposed by the Belagavi Urban Development Authority (BUDA), has hit a major roadblock. The Dharwad Bench of the High Court has quashed the final notification of the Kanbargi Housing Scheme of 2014, which means that BUDA cannot implement the scheme as planned.

This setback means that BUDA will have to start the entire process anew, including issuing a new notification for the scheme. The court’s decision comes after a case was filed by 12 farmers 16 years ago, and the court has now ruled in their favor by quashing the BUDA notification.

Despite opposition from some farmers in Kanbargi, BUDA had issued the final notification for the scheme in 2014. However, the court stayed the entire Kanbargi scheme during the hearing of the petition filed by the 12 farmers. In 2019, the court allowed BUDA to implement the scheme, excluding about 23 acres of the petitioners’ land. However, BUDA had occupied 131 acres of land and was continuously trying to lift the moratorium on the 23 acres of land.

During a hearing on Wednesday, Adv. Ravikumar Gokakar argued that BUDA did not object to the sale of some land and had built houses and residential complexes on reserved land. He also pointed out errors in the notification issued in 2014 and the land acquisition process.

This setback is a significant blow to BUDA’s plans for the Kanbargi residential scheme, and it remains to be seen how they will proceed from here.
