New Delhi: In what seems to be a relief to Law Minister and former Karnataka Chief Minister D.V. Sadananda Gowda, the Supreme Court on Friday November 27, set aside the Karnataka High Court verdict directing the Bengaluru Development Authority to take back the possession of a residential plot allotted to him.

Allowing appeals against the high court order that held that construction at the plot was in violation of the terms and conditions of the lease agreement, an apex court bench of Justice Madan B. Lokur and Justice S.A. Bobde said the high court order was not sustainable in law.

The Supreme Court on October 29 had reserved its order on the plea by Sadananda Gowda and former state civil supplies minister D.N. Jeevaraj challenging the high court order.

In its October 19, 2012 order, the high court had directed the BDA to take action against Gowda and Jeevaraj for constructing one amalgamated building on two adjacent plots allotted to them instead of separate residential structures as per the terms and conditions of the lease agreement.

The implementation of the high court was stayed by the apex court in 2013.

The high court had also quashed the building plans sanctioned by the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) favouring them.

Gowda was allotted the plot on October 20, 2006 when he was deputy leader of the opposition in Karnataka assembly.

The October 2012 high court order followed a PIL by K.G. Nagalaxmi Bai.
