35 tonnes of wet waste cleared from APMC yard 28.7.2014 deccanherald.com
The Bruhat Bangalore MahanagaraPalike on Sunday took up an intensive cleaning drive at the Agricultural Produce Marketing Committee in Yeshwantpur, for the first time in the history of the market set up in 1979. The Palike, on the request of APMC Yard Merchants' Association, deployed men, trucks and tractors to lift the garbage in and around the 83-acre market area. Around 35 tonnes of wet waste was collected during the four-hour cleanliness drive which began at 9 am. Insecticide was sprayed across the market yard to control mosquito breeding. Every day, two to three tonnes of waste is generated at the yard which has as many as 2,000 shops. "The APMC yard started functioning in 1979. However, the civic agency in the past, had not taken any steps to collect the waste. Hence, we sent a memorandum on July 23 to Mayor B S Satyanarayana about the condition of the market. He directed the cleanliness drive," said Vice President of APMC Yard Merchants' Association, Muneer Ahmed. Besides, a meeting was held with ...

The safety guidelines issued by the City police on Saturday apply to all government and private schools. Headmasters or principals are solely responsible for the implementation of the norms, failing which they face imprisonment.

People's problems 28.7.2014 deccanherald.com
Desilt clogged stormwater drain The drainage on 15th 'H' Cross in Muthyalanagar behind JPPark was desilted on June 26. However, the mud removed from the drainage was dumped on the road side and it has not been removed even to this day. Rain water has washed away this mud into the drainage, blocking the SWD. The drainage has turned into a mosquito breeding ground on account of stagnation of water. The residents here face the threat of vector-borne diseases. Hope the authorities concerned will wake up at the earliest. Sumanth Kini Construct platform at railway station It has become a herculean task for the travellers to board/alight trains at the newly opened Krishnadevaraya Halt Station, Hampinagar.

Travails of apartment residents 27.7.2014 deccanherald.com
The next time someone is called a 'proud owner' of a flat in the City, be sure to ask the person what buying it entailed. That "pride" could easily refer to his endurance to overcome ordeals of legality at every step of buying a house, from registration to obtaining a khata certificate. It could also mean ensuring that the builder had taken all no objection certificates (NoCs) from the civic agencies concerned. Approvals, if at all, are given after a long time and with a fairly good deal of bribe money. Multiple visits to the officials concerned are inevitable to get work done. The delay breaks down the applicant who then forks out speed money. If builders manage to get the NOCs by every means in the book, the flat owners end up running around for khata endlessly. Typically residents will tell you that getting khata is their moment of relief even if other approvals have been given. Chetan Shirnali, a sales professional says he bought an apartment near Vijayanagar in 2011/12 "with my hard-earned money and ...

Cash-starved Palike spends Rs 23L for four-minute theme song 26.7.2014 deccanherald.com
The financially 'ailing' Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) has spent a whopping Rs 23.6 lakh on the making of a 4-minute theme song and a short documentary film to promote Namma Bengaluru, Nanna Koduge (My contribution to our Bangalore), a public-private partnership initiative. Namma Bengaluru, Nanna Koduge (NBNK), a brainchild of the Palike, was designed to generate funds from private firms, NGOs and other social organisations and involve them in building and protecting infrastructure in the City. Though NBNK is a good initiative, the manner in which the fund-raiser was kick-started gives a clear idea about the root cause of Palike's woeful financial management. Documents available with Deccan Herald show that the Palike spent Rs 23.6 lakh on the project. Palike gave the contract to make the film and the theme song to Marketing Consultants and Agencies Limited (MCAL), which did it in association with Maya, a video production company, owned by Maya Chandra. The theme song and the short film was ...

'Encroached lake land worth Rs 24K cr' 26.7.2014 deccanherald.com
JD(S) floor leader H D Kumaraswamy on Friday alleged rampant encroachment of lakes in Bangalore and demanded the State government to order a CBI probe into it and ensure that the encroachers were punished. Participating in a debate for grants under the Urban Development department in the Assembly, he said about 1,039 acres of lake land have been encroached upon between 2006 and 2011 in Bangalore. The market value of the encroached land is estimated at a whopping Rs 24,000 crore, he added. He gave a sort of recap on the NLakshman Rau report suggesting measures to revive the lakes and the A TRamaswamy committee report which had exposed land and lake grabbing cases and also observations made by the CAG on encroachment of tanks. Number of influential people, including politicians, have reportedly encroached upon lakes by creating fictitious documents. For instance, part of Byrasandra Lake in Uttarahalli hobli has been encroached and was even pledged to Indian Overseas Bank by using fictitious documents. The ...
