The Karnataka High Court has quashed the show-cause notice issued by the MUDA Commissioner to stop the construction of a 400-bed super multi-specialty hospital by Arogya Yoga Samsthe at Ramakrishnanagar in city, according to a press note issued by Dr. S.P. Yoganna, Managing Partner of Arogya Yoga Samsthe.

The High Court allowed the writ petition filed by the Arogya Yoga Samsthe and passed an order on June 26, 2013 in favour of the Samsthe quashing the notice issued by MUDA. In its order, the High Court has said that when an issue relating to false representation and playing fraud is pending consideration between the same parties before the Principal Civil Judge, Mysore, it is not open to MUDA to issue a show-cause notice and to hold parallel enquiry, said Dr. Yoganna.

Dr. Yoganna further added that the State Government in its order dated February 18, 2005 had categorically stated that no enquiry is to be initiated with regard to the allotment of site in favour of Arogya Yoga Samsthe. Ignoring this, the MUDA issued a show-cause notice to Arogya Yoga Samsthe with regard to the allotment made in the year 1989, which is liable to be quashed.

It may be recalled that a team of MUDA officials had stalled the construction of the hospital building on June 19, 2013 at Ramakrishna Nagar citing violation of MUDA norms by not completing the proposed project within 10 years of allotment.

In his press statement, Dr. Yoganna said that a complaint has already been filed with the Lokayukta to take disciplinary action against the MUDA Commissioner.
