Show-cause notice to Palike officers 26.2.2015 deccanherald.com
A day after Upa Lokayukta Justice Subhash B Adi ordered police investigation into the advertisement mafia in BBMP, Assistant Commissioner, Advertisement, has issued show cause notice to more than 70 Assistant Revenue Officers (ARO) in the City asking them to submit the tax and penalty collected so far.

A senior official said that the Joint Commissioners of eight zones are not co-operating with the efforts to streamline the advertisement policy in BBMP. "The Assistant Commissioner submitted that show cause notice has been issued to AROs.

The police investigation will throw more light on both the missing of thousands of files pertaining to advertisement licences and also non-recovery of tax and penalty," Justice Adi said. Upa Lokayukta had come down heavily upon the BBMP's laxity in streamlining advertisements in the City.

Minister blames contractors for garbage mess 26.2.2015 deccanherald.com
City in-charge Minister Ramalinga Reddy on Thursday held garbage contractor BVG India Private Limited responsible for garbage mess in areas such as Yelahanka, Rajarajeshwari Nagar and Jayanagar.

Speaking at a press conference here on Thursday, Reddy said: "We have directed the BBMP officials to clear the garbage bills of the contractors only after they execute the work effectively. BVG has failed to work in this regard."

The garbage contractor had refused to clear the waste at the above three places claiming that garbage bills have been pending for the last three months.

The minister added that at a few constituencies, action has been taken by slapping a fine against contractors and cancelling garbage contracts. A fine of around Rs three crore was levied on BVG at Yelahanka and new tenders has been floated at 113 wards regarding waste management, he added.

Glaring errors in Palike ward delimitation report 26.2.2015 deccanherald.com
The State government appears to have found a strong reason to postpone elections to the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP). It is understood to have come across a number of glaring anomalies in the ward delimitation report submitted recently by the Bengaluru Urban Deputy Commissioner V Shankar to the Urban Development Department (UDD). The newly-carved out wards, as proposed in the report, has huge differences in population. Several wards in the old Bengaluru areas have 35,000 to 45,000 population, while many located on the outskirts of the City have 55,000 to 60,000 population each - much against the guidelines issued by the State government for delimitation of wards. The tenure of BBMP council will expire on April 26 this year. As per the guidelines, delimitation should be done in such a way that population should be evenly distributed across all the wards of an Urban Local Body (ULB) as far as possible. "A deviation, however, to an extent of 10 per cent of population would be acceptable if the ...

Lokayukta police to probe illegal ad hoardings in City 25.2.2015 deccanherald.com
Upa Lokayukta Justice Subhash B Adi has ordered the Lokayukta police to investigate illegal advertisement hoardings in Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) limits, including missing of files pertaining to advertisement license and tax collection from its eight zones. The action came as the civic body failed to respond to a report sent by the Upa Lokayukta asking it to streamline its advertisement policy. The Upa Lokayukta had received four different complaints on illegal hoardings, flex boards and buntings. Upon enquiry, joint commissioners of eight BBMP zones - East, West, South, Yelahanka, Mahadevapura, Bommanahalli, Rajarajeshwarinagar and Dasarahalli - as well as the assistant commissioner (advertisement) admitted illegal hoardings existed in the City. "Despite the directions given by the High Court and this institution to check illegal hoardings, there was hardly any action. After waiting for sufficient time, a detailed report was prepared with certain suggestions and sent to the mayor and the ...
