BENGALURU: Unauthorised residential layouts have been flourishing unabated in Bengaluru. Among them, Yelahanka has the highest number of illegal layouts in Bengaluru Urban limits.

According to statistics, there are 6,000 illegal layouts in the urban district with Yelahanka topping the list with 3,285 illegal layouts spread across 3,343 acres.

Bengaluru North comes second with 900 illegal layouts spread across 1,080 acres, Bengaluru South 778 layouts in 1,907 acres and Anekal has 501 layouts in 643 acres.

Surprisingly, as the real estate sector around the Kempegowda International Airport (KIA) is booming, it is spurring the formation of illegal layouts.

According to the Bengaluru district administration, the 3,285 illegal layouts have come up near the KIA as there is a demand from people to build houses closer to the airport.

Many wanting to own land are falling for these layouts as their costs are relatively cheaper– Official

Officials said that notices have been issued to 1,961 developers in Yelahanka taluk for forming these illegal layouts while FIRs have been filed against 353 people. The demand is so high that layouts are being formed in a small chunk of land measuring 10 or 20 guntas also.

A senior official said, “As getting a plot in BDA layouts is very difficult, many people wanting to own land or build houses are falling for these illegal layouts as the cost of the land is relatively cheaper. They are also wooed by fancy ideas like site tours or EMI schemes. However, only when the officials are raiding with bulldozers, they realise that the layouts are actually illegal.
