Cash-strapped BBMP will accept property tax in cheques too 25.4.2014 deccanherald.com
The Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) has decided to accept the property taxes through cheques too, as the collection in the first month of the current fiscal itself has nosedived as compared to the previous years. Due to the cheque-bounce cases, the Palike had earlier decided not to accept property taxes through cheques. The BBMP has said that the receipts would be issued only if the cheques are realised in the banks. Besides cheques, people can pay their property tax through demand draft, bank pay order and cash. As complaints are pouring in that the citizens are harassed to fill forms every year to pay their taxes, the Palike made it clear that people will have to fill Form-IV, only in the event of any changes in the building plan. Meanwhile, the Jayamahal corporator M K Gunashekar urged the BBMP commissioner to extend the concession period to pay property taxes by one more month. Every year, the BBMP offers five per cent concession for the month of April to encourage citizens to pay property ...

'Trusted' neighbours held for burgling jeweller's house 25.4.2014 deccanherald.com
Police have arrested two men on the charge of burgling the house of a jeweller whom they had befriended as neighbours. Suresh, 24, a cab driver, and Siddaraju, 23, an auto driver, are the suspects and resident of Srinagar. Police said the two men had got into the house of Ratan, 40, a gold jeweller from 14th Main, Hanumanthnagar, using a duplicate key, and made off with one kg of gold jewellery, 115 gm of silver articles, an uncut diamond and Rs 10,900 in cash. The total worth of the valuables is Rs 35 lakh, police said. The suspects had befriended Ratan as they stayed nearby. They soon became close and the duo began frequenting his home. A gullible Ratan, who lived alone, apparently trusted them, police added. The duo somehow learnt that Ratan kept gold and silver jewellery in the house. Then they allegedly plotted to burgle his house. On the afternoon of March 23, they went to his home on the "pretext" of watching cricket on television. While watching the match, the suspects sneaked out the key of ...

Wide junctions left unregulated 24.4.2014 Deccan Herald - Supplements
There are a lot of junctions in the City where the roads are wide but there are no demarcated areas for pedestrians to walk on or cross. Cops remain missing from the scene, leaving pedestrians to negotiate these wide, unregulated junctions at their own risk. Taking stock of this problem, the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) and the Bangalore Traffic Police have come together and identified seven prominent, problem-prone pedestrian junctions that need urgent repair. Metrolife interacted with the BBMP authorities, traffic police and ordinary people to understand why wide roads are among the most mismanaged. The seven junctions are Trinity Circle, Madiwala, Siddapura Junction, Havnoor Junction near Basaveshwara Nagar, Hebbal near Esteem Mall, Yeshwantpur Junction near Metro and Lalbagh West Gate. The BBMP claims that the 400 kms of road, taken up for repair and relaying of pedestrian paths, are an indispensable part of the plan. M Lakshminarayana, commissioner of BBMP, reasons that there are ...

Environment protection groups, Save Bangalore Lakes Trust (SBLT) and Namma Bengaluru Foundation (NBF), have brought out a report on the encroachment of lakes in the City.

Public places turn urinals due to lack of toilets in City 24.4.2014 deccanherald.com
The dearth of public toilets in the City has resulted in people using public places as urinals. There are just about 400-500 public toilets for a population of about one crore, according to Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP). Out of them, nearly 50-100 public toilets are not functioning due to lack of water, maintenance, among others. There are a total of 198 wards in the City. But most of them have just one or two functional public toilets. Former mayor and corporator of Kathriguppe ward, D Venkatesh Murthy, said corporators receive Rs 2 crore every year for development of wards but face problems in setting up toilets due to lack of space and opposition from public. "Presently, there is just one public toilet in my ward. I wanted to build one inside the Narasimhaswamy Park. But some citizens did not want it inside the park." In 2013, the civic body invited tender for maintenance of toilets wherein pourakarmikas were about to be deployed for the execution of the work. But, there were some internal ...

Road history to be poll plank of AAP 23.4.2014 deccanherald.com
The Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) has decided to take up geo-information-based road history as an issue for the forthcoming BBMP elections next year. The party has also decided to look into scams in the BBMP and would raise them up at the ward level. Speaking to Deccan Herald, the national executive committee member of the AAP, Prithvi Reddy, said that the party is aware of the fact that the GIS-based road history has been prepared, but not implemented. He said the party will also review the necessity and quality of the work, sanctioned amount and expenditure. The party has also decided to field shadow corporators, who will keep track of all the works taking place at the ward level and would file RTI applications seeking information. Meanwhile, the BJP corporator Manjunath Raju, who was instrumental in designing this road history, has blamed the BBMP Commissioner M Lakshminarayana for the delay in its implementation. Some corporators complained that the quality of the Rs 400 cr-asphalting work in the City was ...

Palike property tax collection turns into a trickle 23.4.2014 deccanherald.com
The Lok Sabha elections and the acceptance of demand draft and cash as only mode of payment have hit the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike's property tax collection drive this year. The collections, which in April is usually between Rs 200 crore and Rs 250 crore, has slid to a measly Rs 84 crore this time. With the entire Palike engaged in election duty, property tax collection has taken a backseat. The BBMP is the nodal agency to hold elections in Bangalore Urban district and its commissioner MLakshminarayana is the district election officer. 'No cheques' An order that property taxes have to be paid through demand draft and not cheques is another reason for the sluggish pace of collection. The civic body is not collecting the tax through cheques this year, due to the fraud in previous years. There have been instances of cheques being dishonoured and of tax collectors squandering the cash paid by defaulters. The payment of property tax has slowed down despite a five per cent concession for those who pay ...
