Submitted by alvin on Tue, 2016-03-29 10:32 Bengaluru: In a bid to save its properties from ever-ready land grabbers, the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike has developed ‘Palike Bhoomi’ to have details of all its properties online. Launched on March 14, the software is BBMP Estate Department’s labour of love.S G Raveendra, Special Commissoner, Estates, BBMP said, “More than Rs 15,000 crores worth properties has been put up in the software developed by the team members of estates department in just 15 days. We did not call for tenders to deveop this. Instead, we did it without spending a rupee. Had we assigned this to any private company, they would have charged us some hefty amount.”As on date, there are totally 5,152 BBMP properties of which 4,782 are updated on Palike Bhoomi. About 3,715 properties have  been given property identification (PID) numbers and 1,067 properties are yet to to identified.“Properties may not have been measured by survey officers, which is basically Assistant Revenue Officers’ (ARO) job. Sometimes, the work gets delayed if the officer is preoccupied. However, I will direct zonal commissioners of eight zones to ensure AROs carry out their duty and upload the details at the earliest,” he added.“Unlike earlier, BBMP can now save papers used to document and register the property details. Moreover, its safe and convenient. Details of property, how the BBMP got it through inam commission (government take over the land on which the revenue is not being paid. the inam commission was formed for the investigation and settlement of inam grants given by the king in the favor of an individual.), land tribunal, sale deed, date of sale, amount paid, whether it’s a lease property, vacant land, fully fenced or partially fenced. Also details of any litigation with regard to property, status of the case and such.All these data will be sent to state data centre and hence there is no chance of information beng tampered,” added Raveendra. At present, there are totally 226 cases in the court7 in the supreme court48 high court138 city civil court4 KAT Lease cases7 high court2 city civil court lands recoveredYelahanka survey number 18/2Wardnumebr 818 guntasworth rupees 60 croreKothi hosalli grama Kodigehalli GramaSurvey number 14/1one acre 12 guntasworth 90 crores Dasarahallione acrefour crores worthSouth zone lease property 3 croresSurvey number 11Chikkamavalli 75 centsyet to be taken into possesion20,000 square feet pottery roadRs  24 crores A Ravindra, former additional chief secretary lauding the efforts of Palike officials said, any software that helps in plugging leakage and brings in transparency is welcome.
