Bengaluru: The Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) has been directed by the Karnataka High Court to submit a comprehensive report on commercial activity in residential areas of the city civic body within eight weeks.

The court’s order came after a public interest litigation Wilson Garden Residents Welfare Association filed in which it asked the court to order the BBMP to restrict commercial activity in Wilson Garden, a residential area.
The BBMP was instructed to survey the Wilson Garden area through the Chief Engineer to survey commercial activities there by a division bench of the High Court, which was comprised of Chief Justice Prasanna B. Varale and Ashok S. Kinagi.

Senior officers should create a plan based on this report, which must be submitted to the HC within three weeks. The HC further ordered it to submit a comprehensive report on commercial activity in residential areas, rules and regulations guiding it, conditional permissions that may be given and whether they have, as well as outcomes of periodic assessments.
The court urged to file the report within eight weeks. The petitioner claimed that the Wilson Garden area contains 14 crossroads and that illegal commercial complexes have been constructed there during the past four years. According to sources, only eight of the 115 commercial complexes have the official sanction of the BBMP. The petition also complained that commercial activities on either side of the roads until late hours are a risk for residents.
