2. G.O.No.IDD 26 DIA 2005(i) dated 20.03.2007.

3. G.O.No.IDD 26 DIA 2005 (ii) dated 20.03.2007.


In the Government Order read at (1) above, a Committee was set up under the Chairmanship of the Chief Secretary to examine the request of the various State Government / Central Government / Private Organisations for allocation of 408 acres and 33 guntas of land retained by Government of Karnataka adjacent to Bangalore International Airport near Devanahalli. It has been decided to develop this land in to a Business Park (Devanahalli Business Park).

(2). In the Government Order read at Sl.No.(2) above, sanction of the Government was accorded to partially develop this land and to allocate 53 acres of land to the State and Central Government Organisations at the market rate, except in case of Mega Convention Centre of Tourism Department wherein the rate would be fixed through a transparent bidding process.

(3). In the Government Order read at Sl.No.(3) above, sanction was accorded to partially develop this land and to auction the remaining land after allotment of 53 acres to the State Government / Central Government Organisations through a transparent bidding process to be conducted by KSIIDC, subject to certain conditions.

(4). Subsequently, the desirability of selling the land through auction was re-examined in consultation with KSIIDC. It was pointed out by KSIIDC that considering the importance of the location i.e adjacent to an international airport, the value of the land would keep appreciating with the opening of the airport and its further development. By following a lease model instead of out right sale, the legal ownership of the land will continue to vest with the Government. At the same time, by stipulating appropriate lease rental structure, it will be possible to realize the maximum value for the land in the form of upfront lease rent, revenue sharing or a combination of these. As opposed to this, out right sale would give unfettered right to the buyer for subsequent alienation or sale.

(5). The matter relating to partial development of the land was re-examined. It was felt absolutely necessary to create certain minimum common infrastructure such as roads, drains, water and sewage lines etc., through a Utility Service Provider (USP) who will be selected through a transparent bidding process to under take this work. Of the total extent of 408 acres 33 guntas of land (revised to 413.65 acres due to closure of the major district road and village road passing through the land), only about 247 acres of land will be available for disposal on lease basis after development of infrastructure and allotment of 53 acres of land to the Government Organisations.

(6). Accordingly, the KSIIDC has modified the earlier land use plan and sought the approval of Government for revised land use plan. Meanwhile, M/s. Mysore Sales International Ltd., (MSIL) has requested for allotment of an additional 25 acres of land for setting up warehousing and related facilities in order to meet the future requirements of cargo handling at the new airport. This request has been examined and a decision was taken to increase the area for MSIL's air cargo facility to 25 acres and shift it to the location adjacent to the road connecting BIAL’s main access road and DBP land. It was also decided to earmark 1 acre of land for DGCA as per their request. With this, the area earmarked for allotment to State/Central/Government organizations increases from 53 acres to 71.5 acres.

(7). It was through the efforts and due diligence of KSIIDC that it became possible to identify and retain the excess land of 413 acres 26 guntas. Considering this and also the continuing role of KSIIDC in the planning and disposal of the land retained with the Government, KSIIDC requested to permit it to retain 11.74 acres of land located between railway track and the NH-7 and also to allow it to collect 10% of the proceeds from the disposal of land as “service charges”.

(8). Regarding the price to be fixed for allotment to State/Central/Government organizations, it was recommended to fix the rate at Rs.3 crores per acre for the land allotted to State Government / Central Government organizations which are not commercial / industrial in nature.

(9). Government has carefully considered all the above aspects and issues the following order:



Sanction of the State Government is accorded to allocate 83.24 acres of land to the following State and Central Government Organisations and to fix the rate at Rs.3.00 crores (Rupees three crores) per acre for the land allotted to the State Government / Central Government organizations which are not commercial / industrial in nature.
