BDA (Bangalore Development Authority) has been aggressively offering plots for sale through e-auction. These are residential sites in well developed localities of Bangalore.
It is a well-known fact that in India , property transactions involve a considerable amount of black money , that is the difference between the registered value and agreed market value. These auctions are great news for people who want to avoid such transactions involving black money.

Difference between BDA Allotment and Auction:
