Bengaluru, Oct 22: Children studying in government schools will be distributed second set of uniforms soon as per the decision taken by the State Cabinet at its meeting on Tuesday.

The State government has directed the Bowring Institute, an elite club of the City located on St Mark’s Road, to return 150x100ft plot to the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike since it sub-leased the property to set up a petrol bunk by violating the original agreement.

Revenue Minister R Ashok said that the prestigious club has violated the rules and misused the property by leasing it out to set up the petrol bunk. The Comptroller and Auditor General in its 2014 report has asked the State government to take back a portion of land leased out to Bowring Institute for not utilising it for the intended purpose.

In its report on Revenue Sector, the CAG had said the land was granted for the purpose of establishing a club under rule 19(4)(VIII) of the Karnataka Land Grant rules.

The report said the Institute had sub-let 150ft x 100 ft land to Indian Oil Corporation (IOC) in 1969 after obtaining permission from the government.

The order stipulated that the lessee shall remit 50 per cent of the lease rent collected from the IOC. The lease period was for 20 years, and it was later extended, it added.
