TIRUNELVELI: The Palayamkottai Zone chairman, Suba. Seetharaman has cautioned the public against buying the lands earmarked for public utility purposes.
In a statement, Mr. Seetharaman said a group of realtors, with the support of officials, were creating forged documents to sell the public utility lands situated west of Bombay Theatre and some other areas.
Since these properties were handed over to the Corporation for creation of parks, schools, roads etc. when the layout plans were submitted for approval, these lands cannot be sold as house sites to the individuals.
Hence the Corporation cannot be blamed for the illegal sale of these lands, Mr. Seetharaman said.
