MUDA to form three new layouts

By Our Staff Correspondent

MYSORE, MARCH 20. The Mysore Urban Development Authority (MUDA) has announced that it will invite applications next month for allotting 8,000 sites in three new layouts.

This was decided at a recent meeting of the authority in which various issues pertaining to allotment of sites and returning deposits were discussed.

The MUDA authorities said they would call for applications for three layouts — Shantveri Gopalgowda Nagar, Lal Bahadur Shastri Nagar and Lalitadri Nagar.

Site allocation

Now, sites are being allotted in Vasanthnagar and it would be completed by the second week of next month.

The MUDA, in a release, said members also discussed the issue of allotment letters returned to it because of change in postal address of the allottees. It was decided that the issue would be taken up again.

The MUDA said the decision would be given publicity and it would help all allottees who have not received allotment letters.

Policy decision

However, it was a policy decision and required Government consent and hence the public was requested to watch out for advertisements in this connection and also see the notice board at its office.

Fresh applications

The release said the authority had called for fresh applications for Vasanthnagar Layout with a view to update the details of applicants and also to give opportunity for others to apply for sites.

Deposits

Deposits of all persons who had not given applications in the last few years were returned.

However, the MUDA clarified that there was no provision for paying interest for deposits.

Computerisation

Meanwhile, the MUDA has taken up the computerisation of applications by scanning them and preparing a database.

This will help the authority in issuing allotment letters with photographs of allottees, their signatures and other details. This will help prevent misrepresentation.

The MUDA said it has removed nearly 80 acres of encroachment on its land in Vijayanagar 4th Stage and 2nd Phase layouts which has nearly 1,000 acres of land. A number of people had encroached upon the residential sites, civic amenities sites, roads, etc., because of which there was improper connectivity to the layout.

With the cooperation of the police, the MUDA cleared about 80 acres and recovered 614 sites and also completed work on the connecting roads.

Likewise, six acres of encroachment were cleared in Datagalli Layout.

The MUDA also appealed to the public to inform the authority about any encroachment.

Caution

It also cautioned the public against purchasing sites from developers of illegal layouts and called upon the site aspirants to check the authenticity of their transaction with the MUDA office before completing the process.
