Bengaluru mayoral poll: SC issues notice to Karnataka 22.4.2016 deccanherald.com
The Supreme Court on Friday issued notice to the Karnataka government and others on a plea by a social activist challenging the provision allowing the MPs, MLAs and MLCs to cast votes in the election of the mayor of the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike.

Killing an idea: Attempts to dilute TenderSURE project 22.4.2016 deccanherald.com
The selection of the next 25 roads for a TenderSURE upgrade has surely thrown the BBMP into a tizzy. But, even as hectic lobbying is on to prioritise one road over the other in the final list, a parallel attempt is being made to dilute the project. Here's how:A cosmetic makeover of the roads without shifting the underground utilities. The guidelines for the roads are yet to be finalised. A decision whether to shift the utilities or not is yet to be taken, a top BBMP official told Deccan Herald. This is a clear indication that the guidelines - adopted for the first 12 roads already being upgraded under the project - are now being reviewed. Fresh guidelines without mandatory shifting of utilities will jeopardise the project, warned the brains behind the TenderSURE model. The essence of the TenderSURE design is to keep all key utilities such as power, water, sewage and OFC cables under the pavements. A project veteran closely linked to the road upgrade programme said a movement is now gathering pace within ...

Splitting BBMP good for development, says CM Bengaluru: Chief Minister Siddara 22.4.2016 deccanherald.com
Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Friday said that dividing Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) into smaller corporations would help provide better administration. He was speaking at the Kempegowda Award ceremony hosted by the BBMP. "The city was spread across 220 sq km in 2006 while it is 800 sq km now. There are 198 wards and the population has almost crossed one crore. Hence, we had considered the option of dividing it in order to decentralise administration," he said, and added that plans had to be shelved due to elections and a court stay. Dividing BBMP is good for development and it will not affect brand image of Bengaluru, he said. However, some are opposing it for the sake of opposing the governments move, he said. 19 tmcft of water The city requires 19 tmcft of water and the demand may rise to 30 tmcft in future, Siddaramaiah said. In order to mitigate the water crisis, residents should adopt rain water harvesting, he added. Responding to criticism on improper waste management, he said his ...

Plastic ban drive picks up pace, Hagadur residents get on board 22.4.2016 deccanherald.com
At a time when the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) appears unexcited about strictly enforcing the plastic ban, citizens are going the extra mile in phasing out the harmful substance from their neighbourhoods. Residents of more than a dozen wards have already enforced the ban in their neighbourhoods, with support from the civic body. And the list is only growing. Hagadur (ward 84) in Mahadevapura, east Bengaluru, is the latest to join the mission. On April 2, the local corporator and BBMP officials met the traders as they are the bulk generators of plastic and enlisted their support for the ban. Since then, residents, with the help of BBMP officials, are sensitising the traders to the harmful effects of using plastic and encouraging them to use jute bags instead. They are even supplying free jute bags to shopkeepers on main roads and at traffic intersections. Yagnalakshmi Ramachandralu, a volunteer with Whitefield Rising, a group of citizen activists which took the lead in enforcing the ban in ...

BBMP commissioner shunted out 21.4.2016 deccanherald.com
The state government shunted out G Kumar Naik a year after he was posted as commissioner of Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP). Naik will be succeeded by N Manjunath Prasad, a 1994 batch IAS officer. Naik has been posted as managing director, Karnataka Power Corporation Limited (KPCL), while the incumbent M Maheshwar Rao will take charge as secretary (agriculture), the post earlier held by Prasad. Sources in the BBMP said differences with Bengaluru Development Minister K J George cost Naik his post. About two months ago, the BBMP had slapped a demand notice on a hotel near the HAL Airport asking it to pay the property tax, which ran into crores of rupees. A BBMP insider said the tax is somewhere close to Rs 15 crore. The hotel management had resisted and disagreed over the way the tax was assessed. The BBMP, however, insisted that its assessment was correct. Finally, the hotel had to pay the tax through a demand draft before March 31, but the Palike officials could not deposit the amount. A senior ...
