Bengaluru: Illegal homes that encroached on water bodies are being demolished in Bengaluru leaving many homeless. But the construction is still continuing without any hindrance.

In May, the National Green Tribunal barred construction activity within 75 metres of the periphery of Bengaluru's water bodies. Based on this order, the Karnataka State Environment Impact Assessment board denied clearance to nine mega residential projects saying the builders had encroached on lakes and storm water drains.

But nothing has stopped the construction activity in the IT city.

Ankshu Ecstasy of TGR Projects India, a prominent residential project, has even constructed the entire apartment complex despite being denied environmental clearance.

State Environmental Impact Assessment Board official Ramachandra said, "We withheld their permission as we found that projects had come up on lakes. We asked for response from them. Only one replied and modified their plan. Rest nine hasn't got back to us."

The illegal construction leaves potential home buyers in Bengaluru in a fix with many reconsidering investing in property in the IT city.
