With no formal announcement in the media, BBMP outsources property survey project to an NGO for parts of North Bangalore including Yelahanka, Vidyaranyapura; residents asked to cooperate.

Kempe Gowda ward. Chowdeshwari ward. Atturu. Yelahanka Satellite town. Jakkur. Thanisandra. Byatarayanapura. Kodigehalli. Vidyaranyapura. Dodda Bommasandra. Kuvempu Nagar.

If you reside in any of these wards, it is likely that you have either been visited or will soon be, by officials seeking information about your property. These are officials of a not-for-profit organisation called My Bhumi, who are carrying out a 'property survey' on behalf of the BBMP, for Wards 1 to 11 in North Bangalore.

“Many people are not paying tax, that's why we are doing this. We will feed this into the computer. We will get name of owner, type of building, how many floors, how many portions on rent, tiled roof or RCC roof, phone number, KEB meter number”, says Veerupaksha Mysore, Joint Commissioner (Yelahanka zone). Incidentally, on contacting the Deputy Commissioner (Revenue), D L Chandrashekar, he said that no such survey was being carried out. “If there is any work, our own department people only will do”, he said.

Mysore explains that this process is being carried out because many people do not pay property tax. “Next time we can issue notices and register their names. Also, this can be used for other purposes like census. Those who have not taken katha, they can apply for that”. He also adds that when the area was handed over from the CMC (City Municipal Council) to BBMP, there was no information available on property. “For us to plan projects and develop the area, we need this information”.
