Bengaluru: Chief Minister B.S. Yediyurappa on Saturday cancelled the tenders allotted for the redevelopment of seven BDA complexes in the city.
In a letter to the chief secretary, the CM pointed out that he has received complaints about irregularities in the tendering process.
BJP city unit president N.R. Ramesh had alleged that former Bengaluru Development Minister K.J. George had used his influence during the Congress government to allot the tenders to real estate player Embassy.
Mr Ramesh alleged that under the guise of remodelling, government properties worth Rs 5,000 were set to be encroached.
In the letter, Mr Yediyurappa cited that tenders for redevelopment works were awarded for 60 years with 65:35 revenue-sharing basis. He has ordered an inquiry into the tenders and stopped their processing. The BDA complexes that are set to be remodelled include Indiranagar, HSR Layout, R.T. Nagar, Koramangala, Sadashivanagar, Vijayanagar and Austin Town.
