Traffic jams haunt commuters near KR Puram railway station 6.10.2014 deccanherald.com
For 30-year-old ITprofessional Sujan, the daily ride from his home in Kalyan Nagar to his workplace in Whitefield, is a harrowing experience. Thanks to the chaotic traffic on a section of Old Madras Road opposite KR Puram railway station, where traffic jams last over an hour or longer during rush hour. Sujan is not alone in this struggle. Thousands of commuters are trapped in this traffic net everyday. With neither railway officials nor the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike finding any solution to bring a relief to commuters, the situation is only going to worsen once Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Ltd (BMRCL) begins work on the Baiyyappanahalli-Whitefield line. While the KR Puram railway station is itself a picture of neglect with grossly inadequate infrastructure to tackle train traffic of almost 18 to 20 trains a day, officials say that as much as they would want to expand the station, there is a lack of funds which is hampering its proposals. This, even as there have been suggestions in the past ...

UPOR may be made must for registration of properties 5.10.2014 deccanherald.com
The State government is considering making the proposed Urban Property Ownership Records (UPOR) document (also called property card) compulsory for registration of immovable properties in an effort to preventing fraudulent transactions.

In tune with the tag of Bangalore being the ITcapital and using the opportunity to generate awareness on the 'Clean India' initiative, the BJP on Thursday launched a mobile application for people to identify and upload pictures of litter seen on the streets of the City. The mobile application, litterspotmarker, is readily available on Google Play and www.sbsb.co.in for android operating system. The app allows people to click pictures of garbage dumps in their neighbourhood and upload them online using litterspotmarker. "Once the pictures are uploaded, it will help us conduct a study on how much garbage is being dumped in various parts of the City. This study will then be submitted to the government and the BBMP.

No cheer for City's markets 3.10.2014 deccanherald.com
The much-hyped 'Clean India' campaign brought no cheer for neither traders nor public, with the City's premier K R Market remaining as messy as ever. With filth spread all around, raising a stink, the market presented a sorry sight, even as citizen groups, Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) staff, took to sweeping the City streets. K R Market Flower Merchants' Association President G M Diwakar, ruing the sordid state, said over 15 tonne of wet waste had accumulated the last two days, at the dumping yard, with pourakarmikas not lifting the waste. Since it is festival season, waste generated inside the market and surroundings will increase manifold. The basement of SKR Market Complex is inundated with six-inch of rainwater due to recent downpour and has not been not pumped out, he bemoaned. At K R Puram Market, traders took to the premises cleaning themselves. Traders at Russell Market complained about five to six tonne of waste lying uncleared since three days. Neither Palike nor Shivajinagar ...
