Hi, you have already taken a legal opinion from the advocate and he has given clear opinion and go ahead with the transaction so  don't bother much and go ahead.

2. If you go on scrutiny the documents you are not able to buy a single property in Bangalore and we heard in recent news paper that the BDA has formed layout in tank bed area then how can we trust BDA also   so better you trust the advocate and go ahead with the transaction.

1. Make a title search from the registration office,

2. Visit BDA office personally to enquire about the approval without being dependant on lawyer,

3. Visit the site yourself and talk to the locales. This is a practical way to get to know about the property,

4. Collect information about the property from BDA directly through RTI route,

5.Take loan from the Bank to buy the property. Bank lawyer will make search about the property for you.

1) you have taken right decision to consult a local lawyer before purchase of property 

2) hope you have taken certificate from lawyer that title  is clear and marketable and free for om encumbrances 

3) if layout is approved by BDA then you can proceed with purchase of property if builder had all the approvals in place to carry out construction and has original documents of title in his possession

you should get certified copy of all document and file a questionnaire before junior division court and get verification from all the departments. on filing of suit and make all the department as defendant. summon issued by the court to all defendants and their written statement [ws]will be filed by them . on the WS the court if found all the document genuine pass an order in your favour. 2-3 months will take in all this proceeding. this is the simplest way. 

get verification of : plan approval, nature of land, 30 years land revenue record, record of right and mutation record from respective department.

1. Merely because it is approved by BDA does not imply that it is safe. You should carry due diligence to verify aspects like antecedent chain of ownership, litigation with respect to property to be purchased, etc. 

2. It is advisable to counter check the khata from the registrar's office. 

3. Since your advocate has given you a green signal it seems safe to purchase the property.
