Many cases involving such properties were in court and a judgment was recently issued after many years of trial. After the judgment, the BBMP has decided to construct mini-grounds, gyms and children’s play areas, footpath with, seating arrangements with LED lights at these sites.

“We have planned to do it in the buffer zones near Banaswadi and in many other places. This is an experimental phase. More than beautification, there is no place in the city for people to gather and spend some quality time, which is why we have planned this”, said BBMP Chief Commissioner Tushar Giri Nath.
