Sobha City, a project built and offered for sale by Sobha Ltd on Bengaluru’s Thanisandra Main Road, had its OC revoked by the BBMP on Sunday. According to reports, the apartment’s two-bedroom units range in price from ₹90 lakh to ₹1.30 crore.
What’s it about? The Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) alleged that Sobha City submitted a false no objection certificate (NOC) of the Fire Department to obtain building plans. This led to the withdrawal of the occupancy certificate (OC) for about 2,000 apartments at the apartment complex Sobha City in Thanisandra Main Road.
- A Sobha City apartment owner named Srinivas Rao Talla requested an investigation from the civic organisation, which led to the BBMP taking action.
- The investigation found that the builder gained the local body’s permission for the building plan and OC by submitting a false NOC from the fire department.
Developer’s response: On the other hand, a Sobha spokesperson guaranteed that the builder complies with the laws and that the necessary corrective action will be taken. This situation, the spokesperson noted, will not impact any of the residents living in Sobha City.
