'Palike joint commissioners accountable for SWD eviction' 22.10.2014 deccanherald.com
The joint commissioners of all eight zones of the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike will be held accountable if they fail to evict encroachments on stormwater drains (SWD) as it leads to flooding in the City, said Mayor N Shanthakumari.

Holding a meeting with the BBMP officials here on Monday, Shanthakumari said the Bangalore Urban District authorities had already surveyed all SWDs and had fixed their boundaries. "Now, the joint commissioners have to start the eviction drive in rapid pace," the Mayor said and added that at current pace encroachments could never be cleared from the SWDs. She stressed upon preparing an action plan with a definite target for every week. The Mayor said so far encroachments had been identified at 1,418 places.

The BBMP Commissioner M Lakshminarayana told the chief engineer of SWD to make provisions for funds to fence the places after eviction had been carried out.

Tweaking traffic for tranquility of a few 22.10.2014 deccanherald.com
The southern end of 18th Cross in Sadashivanagar, the preferred address of influential politicians, has been closed for vehicular movement for the last one month. Based on 'oral instructions' from senior officials, the Sadashivanagar traffic police have erected barricades blocking vehicular movement. Motorists, who earlier used 18th Cross road to reach Mekhri Circle, will now have to negotiate the narrow U-turn after the Cauvery Junction, only to ensure privatised movement for a few residents. The 18th Cross has palatial bungalows belonging to politicians and businessmen, including Energy Minister D K Shivakumar and MP D K Suresh. "For three years, the traffic police had closed this road owing to pressure from a few residents. After a protest, it was reopened and the then Additional Commissioner of Police (Traffic) refused to close the road for traffic from the southern end. Later, some residents pressured the BBMP commissioner to widen the road," Mallikarjun L S, a resident of Sadashivanagar, told ...

HC wants specific date from Palike on footpath clearance 22.10.2014 deccanherald.com
The High Court of Karnataka on Tuesday took the Palike to task asking it to file an affidavit as to the exact date by which all encroachments on footpaths would be cleared. A division bench, comprising Chief Justice D H Waghela and Justice R B Budihal, was hearing a PIL petition by Jennifer Pinto and others, seeking directions to ensure safe and scientific footpaths for pedestrians. During the hearing, the BBMP, when questioned on the steps taken to clear encroachment on footpaths and whether they have been cleared completely, submitted that all encroachments had been cleared. The bench then questioned the BBMP on the map of the City with footpath encroachments being cleared as directed earlier. When the civic authority replied in the negative, the bench warned of contempt action against the authorities for not complying with the orders. When the bench questioned the petitioners about the BBMP's submission, counsel for petitioner, Ajesh Kumar, produced the map of the City with encroachments on footpaths ...

This 'Deepavali', make sure you buy fire crackers from a licensed dealer. The BBMP, Bangalore City Police and the Fire and Emergency Services have issued temporary licences to more than 300 shops to sell fire crackers till October 24 at designated open grounds in the City. The three government bodies have come together to ensure that these shops are spaced out in open areas and not sold anywhere in the heart of the City. They have in fact become tighter in the issuance of licences. A senior officer with the Bangalore City Police who didn't want to be named says, "These temporary licences are issued on the basis of a lottery system. An application form needs to be submitted to the Police Commissioner's, mentioning the ground where you want to set up a stall. After the initial procedure, the application forms are then collected after which they are allotted, by drawing lots, to particular grounds in the city," he says. The senior officer informs that they have received a lot of application forms this year. ...
