Minister for Public Works H.D. Revanna said that people in the low-income group would get 3,000 sites in Hassan city. The district administration will purchase 20 acres of land to provide them with the sites, he told reporters in Hassan on Wednesday.

The Hassan City Municipal Council had invited applications from the public for sites. Around 10,000 people submitted applications for 3,000 sites. “Hassan Urban Development Authority will provide 500, while the Karnataka Slum Development Board will provide another 600 sites.
