Bangalore Development Authority (BDA) acquires the land to form layouts and allot’s the sites/plots formed in the layout to the applicants and also to the original land owner’s in return for land acquisition (incentive scheme).
When BDA completes the development of layouts, it will have cauvery water facility, electricity, well planned sewage system and asphalt. Khata of BDA sites will be called as BDA khata and tax will be paid to the BDA. When BDA handover the layout to BBMP after the area becomes a ward (amalgamation or expansion), the BBMP issues a new Khata. The BDA’s Khata becomes outdated at that time.
Four types of sites are there in BDA developed layout.
1. BDA allotted site
2. BDA incentive site or land owner compensation site
3. BDA alternate site
4. BDA auction site
