Number of Bengaluru-based citizens groups and NGOs have filed a writ petition in the High Court of Karnataka against government authorities and private firms over the Bellandur-Agara Special Economic Zone (SEZ) project.

The SEZ project, which is being built in a sensiive area between Bellandur and Agara lake, has been in the news recently on questions over environmental and water clearances.

  1. In fact the wetland needs protection and the places like near airport/devanhalli should be made SEZs .The construction work is still on, they should atleast get a stay order.

  2. Great, this is exactly the kind of social spirited public action we need. Litigation is the only way to make a larger impact.

  3. like we dont have enough SEZs and offices. I would rather that the government invest money in providing affordable wifi networks across the city to discourage the number of physical office spaces and need to commute.
