Residents of posh villas are transported in dinghies and tractors – The New Indian Express

By Express press service

BENGALURU: The floods spared no one – neither the pourakarmikas in their sheds, nor the CEOs in their posh villas. For the second day in a row, residents of these high-end properties were left stranded and had to be evacuated in dinghies and tractors.

Residents of apartments and villas, some costing up to Rs 13 crore each, blamed the BBMP for the deluge.

However, these are the same apartment and villa complexes that have been listed for demolition because they have encroached on the culverts of water bodies.

As a warning, the BBMP deployed earth-moving machinery to the Divyashree and Epsilon flats to break up the slabs blocking the drains.

“About 500 feet of slabs have been removed from the Divyashree apartment complex, and 20 feet of encroachment has been removed at the residential Epsilon Villas in Yamalur. The situation has improved now,” said Dr. Trilok Chandra, Commissioner Mahadevapura Area Task Force who were deployed to monitor flood relief, salvage work and also clear encroachments.

He told TNIE that the BBMP will continue its encroachment campaigns and clear the culverts connecting the lakes to stop the flooding.

According to reports, an apartment in Divyashree ranges between Rs 2.5 crore to Rs 7 crore.

“When launched, the price of the property was around Rs 2 crore and has risen to Rs 8 crore. Despite paying so much, it is still flooded,” said a local resident.

Similarly, Adarsh ​​Palm Retreat, comprising over 300 villas, was also flooded due to heavy rains, bursting lakes and overflowing sewers.

At Ramagondanahalli’s TZ apartment, the BBMP had to deploy boats and the Belagavi SDRF team was dispatched to coordinate with BBMP and fire and emergency officials.
