Namma Metro – part two

Somebody tell me that there is a printer’s devil at work in this extract of a report from the Printers (Mysore) Pvt. Ltd flagship English paper….i.e Deccan Herald

About 12 to 14 lakh Bangaloreans will lose their houses or businesses in the land acquisition for Metro Rail.

If the above figures are correct, that translates to about 20% of Bangalore’s population. A development such as this which impacts & displaces so many people will be a minefield for any government, state or centre.

Can this be true? Can someone corroborate these figures?

More to the point (in the light of yesterday’s post) is my home safe? Am I going to be one of those affected?
