Along with Shantiniketana layout within Mahadevepura zone, it has taken up the removal of irregularities in many areas.”Directions were issued to the Deputy Commissioner that if they do not have proper documents, they will not be left behind, we have told them to remove them regardless of whether they are big or small, many IT companies have taken up illegal constructions, and we have prepared a list of about 30 companies and ordered them to remove them. The minister said that illegal constructions will be cleared in the city by the coming rainy season. He said that when the rain stopped, the previous governments played dramas without removing the irregularities. Officials of Greater Bangalore Metropolitan Corporation said that the government has ordered that no one should be left behind the illegal constructions.
