With the Mysore Urban Development Authority (MUDA) deciding to reclaim the sites allotted to people in city who have violated the agreement to build a house within five years of allotment, the scrutiny of documents has gained pace at the MUDA office here today.

Under the supervision of MUDA Secretary Basavaraj, the staff were busy at the record room in isolating the files pertaining to violation of MUDA order regarding the sites allotted.

By noon today, the scrutiny revealed violation in the cases of 2,893 sites in city and the figure is expected to go up as the process progresses. Among 766 Civic Amenities (CA) sites allotted by MUDA, 214 cases have violated the rules under various categories, according to MUDA sources.

As per the Karnataka State Urban Development Act, an allottee of a site is supposed to construct a house within five years of signing the lease-cum-sale agreement with MUDA. Failing to comply by the rule, MUDA has the right to reclaim the site, forfeit 12.5 per cent of the total amount paid for the site and return the balance amount to the allottee, according to MUDA sources.

Once the scrutiny process to identify the violators is through, MUDA will issue notices to the concerned allottees and the legal course of action will follow, it is learnt.
