Seeks extension of deadline to submit objections

Alleging multiple errors in the draft of the Revised Master Plan- 2031
(RMP), members of the Bengaluru Metropolitan Planning Committee (BMPC) have
requested Chief Minister Siddaramaiah to extend the deadline for submission
of objections. The deadline for submitting objections is January 23.

A meeting of all the members was convened on Tuesday to discuss the
RMP-2031. The meeting, chaired by the chief minister, saw members raise
objections citing inaccuracy at many levels. Members, including
councillors, MLAs, commissioners of BBMP and BDA, and Mayor R. Sampath Raj,
were present at the meeting.

Speaking to mediapersons, Mahadevapura MLA Aravind Limbavali said the map
portrays errors in buffer zones, residential layouts and commercial spaces.

“BDA (Bangalore Development Authority) itself has accepted that there are
loopholes in the draft. There are roads shown on tank bunds and in
residential spaces. Commercial space and residential areas are mixed up.
The buffer zones for lakes, which the officials claim is based on NGT
orders, is also inaccurate,” Mr. Limbavali said.

In the previous meeting, a section of the members had objected to the fact
that the meeting was convened in a hurry without giving ample notice to the
members. This time, however, the invite was sent at least four days ago,
said some of the members who spoke to *The Hindu*.
