Residents of the Reliaable Tranquil community off Sarjapur Road’s are fighting hard to get back parts of their layout left out by the builder. The scary tale is a lesson for every citizen buying land in Bengaluru.
Mohan Rao, an urban planner tells Citizen Matters the real reasons for why so many Bengaluru layouts don’t have water supply and why buses are forced to run on 9-metre wide roads. He is clear about the solutions too.
Zoning rules say that 10–15% of land in layouts should be relinquished for parks that should open to the public. But are the residents happy about it? Is it being implemented uniformly across the city?
