Glimmer of hope as mesh work begins at frothing Varthur lake 22.3.2017 deccanherald.com
Varthur lake is frothing all the time, with citizens saying it becomes news only when someone puts up a picture on social media. But since Wednesday, the scene has been particularly bad, with the state highway towards Whitefield being enveloped by flying foam. On Tuesday, the Bangalore Development (BDA) had begun putting up a mesh. The work began after officials were pulled up by Chief Secretary Subhash Chandra Khuntia on Sunday (March 20), when he visited Bellandur and Varthur lakes. He ordered them to show results within a week. "The mesh will come up around the waste-weir area of Varthur lake, from where the froth spills onto the road. Work began on Wednesday and will be completed within a week," said Veda Murthy, Bangalore Development Authority (BDA) assistant executive engineer.

BBMP revenue generation falls short of budget target 22.3.2017 deccanherald.com
Even as the Bruhat Bengaluru MahanagaraPalike is gearing up to present its budget on March 25, it has come out that the local body has been able to implement only 40% of its previous budget proposals. The BBMP had presented a budget with revised estimates of Rs 9,353.1 crore and had expected receipts of Rs 9,351.03 crore for 2016-17. However, the resource mobilisation so far is claimed to be about Rs 6,000 crore, which includes Rs 3,800 crore received from the state government. The budget implementation report will be released only on the day budget for next fiscal year is tabled. However, Palike officials and corporators say that the realisation of the budget in terms of revenue generation and implementation of public works is no different from those of previous years. "Many welfare schemes have not yet started except for the midday meal for pourakarmikas. The resource mobilisation is equally poor," pointed out Padmanabha Reddy (BJP), leader of the Opposition in the BBMP Council. He said that the state ...

Rains hit 40% of state's Alphonso mango crop, production takes a hit 21.3.2017 deccanherald.com
There is likely to be a shortage of the most preferred mango variety Alphonso this season. Kadregowda, managing director, Karnataka State Mango Development and Marketing Corporation Ltd (KSMDMCL), during a media interaction on Tuesday said the sudden rainfall in February and March has destroyed the Alphonso crop in parts of north Karnataka like Belagavi and in Bengaluru Rural, Kolar and Ramanagaram. This will not only effect the domestic market, but exports also. However, the Banganapalle and Mallika crops are picking up and this could substitute Alphonso exports. However, Alphonso is the first choice in the export market, especially in the European and Gulf countries. "Around 30 to 40% of the Alphonso crop has been damaged. Of the two lakh hectares under mango cultivation in Karnataka, around 60,000 ha is under Alphonso production. Of this, around 10,000 ha was affected by the cyclonic rainfall. We have lost around two to three lakh metric tonnes of Alphonso crop this year," he said. Last year, 6,750 ...

'Negligence by govt bodies killing lakes' 21.3.2017 deccanherald.com
Taking strong exception to the poor status of lakes in Bengaluru, the People's Campaign for Right to Water (PCRW) accused the government agencies of failing in their responsibility.

Addressing a press conference on Tuesday, Kshitij Urs of PCRW said, "It is unfortunate that instead of celebrating good work on World Water Day, we are highlighting the 60 orphaned lakes of the city — two of them are Bellandur and Varthur."

He charged BDA with destroying the lakes by creating residential areas on lake beds and allowing their encroachment.

"In September 2016, BDA transferred the responsibility of 60 lakes to the BBMP arbitrarily. The BBMP too refused to take over these lakes citing lack of resources," said Urs.

No closure of KCDC plant but waste intake to come down 20.3.2017 Deccan Herald - City
Residents of southeastern Bengaluru on Monday called off the protest for the closure of the waste-processing unit in Somasundarapalya after Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) officials promised to address their grievances. As BBMP Commissioner (Solid Waste Management) Sarfaraz Khan arrived at the protest venue, people gathered around him and explained to him how the Karnataka Compost Development Corporation (KCDC) plant had made their lives miserable. They said the plant gave off foul smell and demanded its immediate closure. Khan initially suggested there was nothing wrong with the plant but later came around to residents' point of view. He made it clear that the plant could not be closed down right away as the BBMP didn't have any other option, but promised that only garbage from the Bommanahalli zone would be processed there. He also promised a detailed road map towards the gradual closure of the plant. BBMP Joint Commissioner (Bommanahalli zone) Veerabhadra Swamy said the garbage arriving at ...

Land acquisition blues for 2nd underpass near Kadirenahalli Cross 20.3.2017 Deccan Herald - City
Land acquisition problems are set to obstruct the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike's (BBMP) plan to build another grade separator next to the Kadirenahalli underpass towards Dayananda Sagar Institutions. The BBMP is building a signal-free corridor on the Outer Ring Road (ORR) to link Yeshwantpur with Silk Board junction via Jedi Mara junction on Bannerghatta Road. A major stumbling block to the project is the intersection near Kadirenahalli Cross. Four years ago, the BBMP built an underpass at Kadirenahalli Cross but forgot to decongest another intersection just 150 metres away. As a result, the bottleneck continues there. It has now planned to build a grade separator (flyover or underpass) at the intersection of the ORR with the road that leads to Dayananda Sagar Institutions, said BBMP chief engineer (major project) B S Prahallad. "We want to build a grade separator but land acquisition problems have hampered our plans. Now that a new Transfer of Development Rights (TDR) policy is on the anvil, we ...
