Title deeds to slum-dwellers

Title deeds to slum dwellers

With the Cabinet deciding to stop issuing title deeds to residents of notified slums in the city in 2011, many representations sent to the government seeking title deeds have been rejected, said N. Manjunath Prasad, BBMP Commissioner.

Responding to a query posed by Mahalakshmi Layout MLA K. Gopalaiah, he informed the BBMP council here on Monday that the Cabinet had revoked the government order issued in 2010 on this matter. In 2010, the government stated that the lands of the notified slums would be transferred to BBMP at no cost by the various departments, and the civic body could issue title deeds and lease agreement for 10 years to the residents. “The Cabinet decision was in line with the JNNURM rules that made way for vertical development in the slum areas,” he said and added that he would raise this issue with Deputy Chief Minister G. Parameshwara.
