According to a story that appeared in the Hindu, TKA Nair's niece and friend were allotted plots in South Bangalore by BEML Employees' Co-operative Society at throwaway prices.
"TKA Nair is one of the most corrupt officers in the country. He works in tandem with many political leaders and he is working in the PMO. I wrote to the President and the PM saying that Natarajan is involved in many scams and the nexus between Natarajan and Nair... they have worked on nearly 6000 files. For allotment of BEML sites, they should work in BEML for 5 years, be a resident of Karnataka for 10 years. So the land was allotted to complete strangers like Nair's people. Even if they have withdrawn their allotments, they are still guilty. CBI is made to sleep over all these charges because of Nair's influence. AK Antony is a helpless person. There are 40 other MoD officials who have plots thanks to Natarajan, this is a big scam. They are all selling the nation," said KS Periyaswamy, a stakeholder, who claimed that the Co-operative society was under pressure to make the allotments.
He claimed that he wrote to the President and the PMO alleging that allotments were made in a bid to silence the PMO over the Tatra Scam. The plots were however, returned in December 2010 by Nair's niece and family friends.
