The Namma Metro project got a shot in the arm when the Karnataka High Court on Monday disposed of a writ petition relating to the construction of the station at South End, Jayanagar, Bangalore.

Lakshmidevamma, one of the owners of a building at South End, had moved the court against acquisition of her property saying the Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) did not require all of it. She wanted the court to set aside the acquisition of more than 1,200 sq. m of the building.

The State Government, Karnataka Industries Areas Development Board (KIADB), BMRCL filed a statement saying they needed only 924 sq. m and the rest of the area would be denotified.

Justice K.L. Manjunath disposed of the petition.
