The Supreme Court has taken an exception to the Bangalore Development Authority's failure to furnish details of the land acquisition for the formation of 'Dr Shivarama Karanth layout' in Bengaluru, following the notification issued on October 30, 2018.

A bench of Justices S Abdul Nazeer and Sanjiv Khanna gave the BDA Commissioner 10 days time to file a response or appear in person before it on December 2, the next date of hearing.

The court was examining compliance of its August 3, 2018 judgment which directed the Karnataka government and the Bangalore Development Authority not to drop acquisition of 650 acres of land for 'Dr K Shivaram Karanth Layout' in Bengaluru.
