Bengaluru district authorities on Saturday gave Sandalwood actor Darshan 15 days to vacate his house, which has allegedly encroached upon land meant for storm water drains (SWD).

Darshan’s house is among the eight houses at Ideal Homes Layout in Rajarajeshwari Nagar area that have received the notice.

The notice said that if the owners did not vacate their houses in 15 days, their belongings will be thrown out, reported the Times of India.

The Hindu quoted Bengaluru (urban) deputy commissioner saying, “In all, there are 69 properties in Ideal Homes Layout, which, our investigation has concluded, have encroached upon 7 acres and 31 guntas of government kharab land.”

Only eight houses have been built at Ideal Homes Layout, while the rest are plots of land.

In an earlier report, ToI had pointed that Darshan’s house would be turned into a government office.

According to the Deccan Herald report, the authorities took possession of the layout that has eight houses and 20 vacant sites, a park and two civic amenities.

ToI reported saying that the total value of the property recovered was Rs 500 crore. 
Apart from Ideal Homes Layout, Shamanur Shivashankarappa Hospital, has also been identified as sitting on ‘B’ Kharab land (wasteland), which is prohibited under the Karnataka Land Revenue Act. 
The hospital management and owners of 41 properties, however, moved the High Court of Karnataka and obtained a stay on the takeover. 

“After we served notices, S.S. Hospital and owners of 41 other properties managed to get an interim stay order from the High Court. So, we are acting against only those 27 properties on which there is no stay order,” Shankar said.
