In recent times, Bangalore has witnessed phenomenal growth in population due to various reasons such as pleasant weather conditions, better career opportunities and the like. As a result of this, there has been a rapid increase in the demand for house and house-sites
here. In order to cater to this increasing demand, a large number of Developers and Property Dealers
have come into picture and have been forming private layouts without following the mandatory procedure and requirement of law making the innocent purchasers to suffer.
To avert this mishap, it is necessary that the intending purchasers of immovable property in Bangalore
to have some knowledge about the nature of the property proposed to be purchased by them to save themselves from the risk of investing in the immovable property with no valid and marketable title.
There are only two authorities, which have been authorized to approve layouts in and around Bangalore viz., Bangalore Development Authority [B.D.A.] and Bangalore Metropolitan Rural Development Authority [B.M.R.D.A
While the BDA approves the layout
plans for formation of layouts in the lands falling within the metropolitan areas, BMRDA approves layout
plans for formation of layout in the lands situated in the outskirts of Bangalore. Getting approval for the land conversion and layout formation from BMRDA is less time consuming, less expensive and easier when compared to procedure laid down by the BDA.
