Starts this way:

The first communication to the BDA was from D J Bhadra, Principal Accountant General of Karnataka on October 5, 2010. He sought details of land acquisition and denotification over the past 10 years.

After some more efforts from mere mortals such as Addl Cheif Secretary (UDD):

On March 7, the principal AG again wrote to Hari Singh and the BDA commissioner demanding the information. The Urban Development Department again shot off a reminder to the BDA on March 23. The ‘deafening silence,’ continued.

If this is the case with CAG requesting info, god help us - the aam aadmi - in getting anything out of this safe closet. 

Deccan Herald has accessed the correspondence between the agencies through an RTI application.

Good job getting this out DH. Glad to see newspapers getting active.
