The proposed highrise on a plot near Cunningham Road, being by Legacy Global built by Legacy Global Projects, is headed for bigger trouble now, this time over encroachment of land. The violation could even end in cancellation of the project, said BBMP officials. The plot was originally owned by four persons: Shagufta Parveen, Syed Ziauddin, Benazir Kauser and Sadia Banu.

BBMP revenue officials, who scrutinized original documents of the property, found that plot owners showed an excess land of 1,238 sqft for getting the building plan sanctioned as the original release deed mentions a lesser plot area. The new finding is another addition to the charges faced by Legacy like unauthorized diversion of water pipeline and faults in laying foundation for the highrise.

Copies of the building sanction checklist prepared by the deputy commissioner (revenue) and release deed (both with TOI) mention the plot area of prop erty 30 at SRT Road (Cunningham Road) as 33,228 sq mts and 31,990 sq ft respectively, clearly indicating a goof-up by BBMP.

A senior BBMP revenue official said, "It is a clear case of encroachment as the difference in the property measurement should belong to BBMP or another property owner. We'll make a detailed report. This along with other violations could end up in cancellation of the project itself. The role of concerned officials who allowed violations will also be questioned," he added.

BBMP's town planning department had okayed the plan on December 15, 2013.

Two days before N Narasappa, an assistant revenue officer of BBMP, was to retire on April 30, 2012, he arbitrarily did the amalgamation of the Legacy property which had four sub-numbers, 30, 307, 308 and 309 measuring over 30,000 sq ft then."Amalgamation of any property over 4,000 sqft should be done by additional commissioner or commissioner-level officers. But Narasappa not only did it in three days but also signed the document. The process usually takes 30-45 days," said a senior BBMP official.
