Palike in a fix over zoning violations 21.6.2017 deccanherald.com
The order of the High Court of Karnataka banning commercial buildings in "residential main area" is flagrantly violated along the 10th Main Water Tank Road and surrounding areas in Indiranagar. Several commercial buildings dot this road, classified as "residential main zone" in the comprehensive development plan of the Bangalore Development Authority. The ward engineers of the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP), in reply to RTI queries by residents, admit that these buildings not only violate zoning regulations, but also lack trade licences. Yet, these buildings are intact and do brisk business. "Imagine a situation where 60-70 people are in an office adjacent to a residential building. Opening the windows of our house would mean that we are constantly under the gaze of these strangers. Our privacy has gone for a toss," says Praveen S, a member of Indiranagar Second Stage Residents' Welfare Association. Pubs and spas, he says, have added more to the nuisance. "God knows what all happens inside ...

Carlton Towers gets occupancy certificate sans fire dept clearance 20.6.2017 Deccan Herald - City
The BBMP has issued occupancy certificate to Carlton Towers on Old Airport Road despite the Fire and Emergency Services department not renewing the clearance certificate. The building was shut down after a devastating fire killed nine people and left scores of people injured on February 23, 2010. People trapped in the seventh floor of the building started suffocating and jumped to the ground. Only one person survived while the others died on the spot. Raghu, BBMP's additional director of town planning, told DH the occupancy certificate (OC) was issued a week ago. "We issued the OC after they put in place all the safety norms," said Raghu. N R Markandeya, deputy director of Fire and Emergency Services, said the no-objection certificate was issued long back, but the annual renewal of clearance certificate had not been done. "We had recommended certain rectifications such as addressing the building plan violations and lack of space between two buildings. The building owners complied with our directions. ...

Contractor takes BBMP for a ride, fakes work done cert to win bid 20.6.2017 Deccan Herald - City
The BBMP project of remodelling stormwater drains (SWDs) has become scam-ridden. The BBMP approved a Rs 55-crore tender in Hebbal Valley (Package-2) for a contractor who had submitted fake work done and turnover certificates. After issuing the letter of intent, the BBMP has now withheld the work order. The civic body had invited tenders for remodelling a 192-km network of stormwater drains under the Nagarothana scheme with the state government contributing Rs 600 crore. For Hebbal Valley, Tam Tam Pedda Guruva Reddy's bid was finalised as L-1, the lowest bidder. After negotiation, Rs 55 crore was fixed for the work and the letter of intent was issued in October 2016. Meanwhile, former BJP corporator N R Ramesh filed a complaint with the Technical Vigilance Cell under Commissioner (TVCC) and the Bangalore Metropolitan Task Force (BMTF) against Reddy, accusing him of submitting fake experience and work done certificates. One of the conditions in the tender notification was that the bidder should have a ...

'Govt ads on bus shelters cost BBMP Rs 68.14 crore' 20.6.2017 Deccan Herald - City
BJP leader N R Ramesh on Tuesday accused the government of causing a loss of Rs 68.14 crore to BBMP by displaying its advertisements on 439 bus shelters without paying any fee for it. At a press conference, Ramesh said the government used 439 bus shelters of BBMP to advertise its various schemes with images of Chief Minister Siddaramaiah. "The norm is that the state government or central government have to pay the Palike for using its facilities to advertise their schemes. None of the Palike officers ever dared to ask the government to pay. This is a scam," claimed Ramesh. He said the advertisements were put up for two consecutive years 2015-16 and 2016-17. The annual loss was Rs 34.07 crore. Ramesh said he had lodged a complaint with the Lokayukta and is also mulling over taking legal recourse. When contacted, assistant commissioner of BBMP C Nagaraju said the information department of the government had approached the public relations division of BBMP to advertise government schemes on bus ...

Rival RR Nagar corporators hurl charges at each other 19.6.2017 deccanherald.com
On Monday, corporators supporting Rajarajeshwari Nagar MLA Munirathna termed charges against their leader baseless and lashed out at three women corporators and their husbands. Addressing a press conference, corporators Velu Nayak, G Mohan Kumar and three others from the Rajarajeshwari Nagar constituency said corporators Asha Suresh (Congress), Mamatha Vasudev (BJP) and Manjula Narayanaswamy (JD-S) were involved in a Rs 100-crore scam. Corporator G K Venkatesh said: "JP Park corporator Mamatha Vasudev's husband has encroached on the lake near JP Park. The lake, which was 103 acres, has shrunk to 84 acres. We are fighting against this because we want to save the lake.'' The women corporators and the BJP leaders filed a memorandum to Governor Vajubhai Vala earlier this month urging him to direct the government to initiate action against Munirathna, accusing him of a role in the attack on women corporators at a BBMP programme attended by Chief Minister Siddaramaiah in Laggere in May.

A legislature committee on public undertakings on Monday recommended a probe by the Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB) into irregularities in implementing a proposed waste-to-energy project by the BBMP and the Karnataka Renewable Energy Development Corporation Limited (KREDCL)at Mandur near Bengaluru. In its report submitted in the Legislative Assembly, the 21-member committee has said that the BBMP failed to implement the project taken up under public-private partnership despite spending Rs 73 crore. Besides, the private partner — Srinivas Gayatri Resources Recovery Ltd — has raised Rs 52.95 crore loan from various banks by pledging six acres of government land, the report added. The BBMP and KREDCL had jointly taken up the project to process 1,000 tonnes of garbage a day and generate 8 MW of electricity at Mandur. The BBMP had signed a memorandum of understanding with the private partner or the contractor to complete the project by April 2007. But the project has remained incomplete, the report ...
