Rs 1 lakh Crore worth of land encroached in Bangalore

About a third of the land of the government is encroached upon which amounts to 41, 303 acres worth about Rs. 1.03 lakh crore. A protest was led by the freedom fighter H. S. Doreswamy and a former legislator A. T. Ramaswamy which is on the way of gaining momentum and the protesters have the feeling that government is passive to bring the land encroachers to book.


Urban Bangalore has five taluks which are Bangalore North and Bangalore North Additional, Bangalore South, Bangalore East and Anekal. The total land of government including forests is about 1.3 lakh acres. Of this, about 41, 303 acres which comes to about 33.77 percent is encroached. The Karnataka government told the High court of Karnataka that in the districts about 33, 878 acres of land has been encroached upon. But Mr. Ramaswamy who headed the joint committee of legislature consisting of 17 members that was appointed to unearth encroachments in Bangalore and adjoining areas in 2006-7 said the figure of encroachment would be 41, 303 acres.

Mr. Ramaswamy said that 1 acre costs about at least Rs. 2.5 crores even at conservative estimates which makes the value of the encroached land Rs. 1.03 lakh crores. The former additional chief secretary Mr. V. Balasubramanium who was the chairperson of the committee for the recovery of encroached land said the land could cost even more at about Rs. 2 crores to Rs. 3 crores per acre of land. He said this looking at the value of the multistoried buildings being built in that area and the cost of it which is about Rs. 20, 000 per sq. ft. He says that taking the present cost of the land, the encroached land will cost more than Rs. 1 lakh crore.

The protesters want the encroachment of the poor to be treated differently from the land encroachment of mafia. However they are happy that the government announced of creating two deputy commissioner positions in Bangalore urban district and the promise of constitution of special courts after getting the Assent from President for the Karnataka land Grabbing (Prohibition) bill, 2011.
