Cool spots face the heat 12.3.2015 Deccan Herald - Supplements
There was a time when MG Road and St Mark's Road reflected the glory of Bengaluru City. However, St Mark's Road, these days, is haunted by problems thanks to the ongoing Tender SURE project. While motorists and pedestrians are bearing the brunt of it, the traders on this road say that their businesses are now at stake. There is a line of eateries on St Mark's Road, which once made this road a sought-after 'adda' for a sumptuous lunch and dinner. But it no more remains the desired place to hang out due to all the digging and axing. While the Tender SURE project, which is progressing at a snail's pace on this road, promises to end the chaotic traffic and pave way for cyclists and pedestrians, there are many who doubt whether the outcome would be positive. "The work seems never ending. The BBMP should really speed it up. Our business is affected largely and I want to regain it at the earliest. The traffic is congested and there is hardly any place to even walk now. The BBMPhas already missed two deadlines ...

Mayor's action forces mall to cough up Rs 10 cr tax 12.3.2015 deccanherald.com
The drastic step of closing down a mall on Bannerghatta Road by the mayor helped the BBMP (Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike) collect property tax worth Rs 10 crore on Thursday. Classic Reality Mall had not paid property tax to the tune of Rs 10.52 crore for the last seven years. Mayor N Shanthakumari visited the mall and ordered its closure. This forced the mall owner to pay up Rs 10 crore by the evening. He handed over a cheque to Palike Commissioner M Lakshminarayana. Subsequently, the mall was allowed to reopen. "We had issued a notice, but the mall approached the High Court. The court too asked the mall owner to pay up. We again issued a notice and asked them to pay at least half the amount. As they did not take our notices seriously, we closed down the mall," Shanthakumari said in the afternoon. The mall has nine MNCs operating out of the building. But the Palike officials found that only one of them had obtained trade licence. The mall also has shops, canteen, among others, and has about 2,500 ...

Hike ad tax for more revenue, BBMP told 12.3.2015 deccanherald.com
Upa Lokayukta Subhash B Adi has suggested that the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) impose heavy penalties and hike advertisement tax to increase its revenue.

Justice Adi gave the suggestion during an address to BBMP officials at a meeting on Thursday. He also suggested that the Palike consider making changes to its advertisement bylaws besides pushing for amending the Karnataka Open Places (Prevention of Disfigurement) Act, 1981.

He also advised Palike officials to work hard and respond to citizens' problems without any delay.

"Palike officials should stop running behind elected representatives," he said.

BBMP Commissioner M Lakshminarayana said officials and elected representatives could work together to find effective solutions to citizens' problems.

Meanwhile, the Palike has sent a proposal to the State government for banning advertisement hoardings in the City, Mayor N Shanthakumari told Deccan Herald.

Revive Gottigere lake by May, Upa Lokayukta directs civic agencies 11.3.2015 deccanherald.com
Upa Lokayukta Justice S B Majage has directed the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP), the Bangalore Development Authority (BDA) and the Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB) to revive the Gottigere lake by May 15. After he received a series of complaints from the local residents and the volunteers of 'We Save', an NGO, the Upa Lokayukta visited the lake on Wednesday. Speaking to Deccan Herald, Majage said the residents of the area had complained to him around eight months ago that the lake had been encroached upon. Following their complaints, he said he had instructed the BBMP and the BDA officials to fence the lake. "Around two weeks ago, the residents met me again and said that though the lake had been fenced, the problem of encroachment continued in some parts," he said. Justice Majage, along with a team of Lokayukta officials, inspected the lake on Wednesday and found that, apart from the encroachment menace, the lake was in a pathetic condition. The lakebed was littered with ...

State budget may have few surprises for Palike 11.3.2015 deccanherald.com
The State budget 2015-16 is unlikely to throw up any surprises in terms of new schemes or proposals to ease the problems of Bengaluru. Sources in the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP)say that unlike in the previous State budgets, the budget for the next fiscal may have minimal number of fresh projects for the City, and stick to the previous proposals which are yet to be implemented. The Palike itself is in a pickle, with mounting debts and increasing pressure on the civic agency to cater to the City. It is said that the government has not released the previously promised budgetary support of 2013-14 and 2014-15. While the BBMP was allocated Rs 750 crore in 2013-14 by the previous chief minister Jagadish Shettar, the Congress government increased the grants to Rs 1,527 crore for the Palike in 2014-15 by aggregating the funds from Nagarothana Scheme, 13th Finance Commission schemes, State Finance Commission schemes, Lake Development scheme and Chief Minister's Special Grants scheme. However, ...

Ulsoor lake to be cleaned, developed 11.3.2015 deccanherald.com
Mayor NShantakumari on Wednesday said the Ulsoor Lake would be developed and made user-friendly under the 'Nanna Bengaluru, Nanna Koduge,' project.

The Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP), along with the Prestige Group, will comprehensively develop the lake, she said. "It would be beautified and made a tourist spot," she added.

The lake is known for its poor maintenance as garbage is dumped into it on a regular basis. Even as a purification unit has been set up, it appears to be of no use as the drainage water from Shivajinagar and surrounding areas is let into the lake.

On seeing plastic bags and other garbage floating on the lake water, Shantakumari took the officials to task.

Deputy Mayor K Ranganna, who was enraged on the sight of unclean toilets on the lake premises, said: "Hundreds of people throng the place on weekends. They come here to get some fresh air and relax. The stench of these toilets will only drive them away."

The members of the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) Standing Committee on Markets, including its president B R Nanjundappa, went on a surprise inspection of stalls in Palike markets on Wednesday. These stalls have been functioning for several years, without paying rent or renewing their licences. There are 76 stalls at the Halasuru market which falls under the BBMP east zone.
