I have planned to purchase a site in Mysore Road. The site is duly converted for non-agricultural residential purpose. This is a private layout the developers claim that they have NOC from BDA and also have paid betterment charges. Will NOC from BDA is enough:

Please verify whether the layout is approved by BDA or BMRDA or BMIC or by any other approved planning authority as the registration of sites in layouts not approved by planning authorities are prohibited. NOC from BDA generally relates to the status of the site on a particular date but does not guarantee that in future BDA will not acquire the land, nor layout is approved. If the betterment charges are paid to CMC and katha in form no 19 is available and the layout is approved by authorised planning agency, you may purchase the site provided that the title of the seller is good. It would be advisable to proceed through an advocate.
