In a major relief to one of the major builders — the Mantri developers as successfully obtained the stay order from Karnataka High Court on Thursday to not to recover the land said to be encroached by the real estate Mantri developers — the Mantri Mall and Mantri Green Apartment in Malleswaram.
Justice P B Bajantri (court hall No 12) issued interim order and stayed Regional Commissioner’s order and also issued notice to 14 respondents — including Regional Commissioner, BBMP Commissioner, Urban Development departments Principal secretary, West zone joint commissioner, Gandhinagar assistant revenue officer, Commissioner for Department of land survey settlement revenue and land records and others.
Sources said that the BBMP panel advocate C Prakasha had filed caveat (CP No 2325/2020) before the court but he failed to appear on Thursday. Moreover Justice Bajantri was angry on the part of BBMP and stated: “This is not tolerable. One advocate files caveat and somebody else appears for him. This shows how serious they are.”
Interestingly, M/S Hamara Shelters had filed a petition on February 28 which was heard on Thursday.
