Government has no records regarding the allotment of two MUDA sites
An application was filed with the Mysore Urban Development Authority (MUDA) under the Right to Information (RTI) Act seeking to get the details of the documents concerning a four-storeys building with 12 apartments in Chikkaharadanahalli First Stage.
The reply to the application has revealed that fake documents might have been created for two MUDA sites on which the building is currently standing with all its apartments occupied. The reply shows that the layout was formed by the MUDA in 1988-89 and the sites in question (site no. 700 and 701) were not allotted to anyone at that time.
However, the PIO stated in the reply that MUDA had no records or documents stating that the two 50x80 ft sites were not allotted to anyone. MUDA doesn’t have the records of allotment, possession certificate, sale deed or receipts for cash transactions made for the sites. But, the City Improvement Trust Board (CITB) ledger shows that the two sites were purchased against a meager amount of Rs. 39,366 in April, 1988.
The residents of the apartments confessed that they were lured by relatively lower prices but are now anxious that they have been cheated and they don’t have valid documents for the possession of the flats. MUDA commissioner has, however, assured that the matter will be investigated and proper action will be taken.
