The court also directed the BDA to demonstrate the methodology adopted and the reasons given based on the apex court’s directions in relation to either acquiring or deleting parcels of land situated in isolated pockets in Hebbal-Kempapura. Pointing out that several land parcels were dropped from acquisition saying they were not useful for formation of the layout in a continuous manner, the petitioners have claimed that the BDA’s land acquisition officer had in 2012 concluded that their plots were in isolated pockets and, hence, recommended their exclusion from the acquisition process.
