|Kerala likely to dump Cybercity land deal|
Kerala government is likely to cancel the land deal for Kochi Cybercity project due to widespread accusations that the land owned by the HMT was handed over to the Blue Star Realtors for the purpose 'other than industrial'.
This change of stance by Kerala government came in the wake of Kerala High Court admitting a public interest litigation seeking CBI probe into the land deal.
Kerala government had given 70 acres of prime property 'free of cost' to HMT several years ago. This property was originally aquired by the government for the industry purpose and could not be transfered to any purpose 'other than industrial'.
The meeting of the Kerala State Cabinet is likely to take a final position on this. But State industry minister Mr. Elamaram Karim has already said that the State government was ready for a review of the land transaction process.
However, HDIL is going ahead with it's work in the proposed land.
