Improve service before hiking trash cess, citizens tell Palike 28.12.2016 deccanherald.com
The BBMP's proposal to hike the garbage cess has come as a shocker to citizens already reeling under demonetisation and increased property tax. Residents' Welfare Associations (RWAs) and citizens' groups have criticised the Palike's plan to increase garbage cess to 15% of the property tax and termed it as looting of public money. The existing cess is 10%, collected based on the area where the property is situated. Citizens' Action Forum president D S Rajasekhar said that the proposal was unwarranted and a burden on the public. "What have they done with the cess collected earlier? Despite collecting the garbage cess, problems continue in the form of poor garbage collection and uncleared trash," he said. The BBMP health standing committee members have approved the proposal by BBMP Commissioner Manjunath Prasad in August this year, requesting for a hike in garbage cess. Palike sources said that the cess would be effective from the next financial year 2017-18, if the Palike Council approves it at its next ...

Siddu flays Palike for failure to shore up revenue 27.12.2016 deccanherald.com
Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Tuesday expressed disappointment over BBMP's inability to increase its revenue, despite holding several review meetings with Palike officials. Speaking after the launch of BBMP's 'Simplifying Citizen Services Delivery, e-governance initiatives,' at Town Hall, he said, "Meetings were held specifically to discuss and increase the revenue of the civic agency. But action has not been taken to increase the revenue." He directed MKGunashekar, chairman, standing committee on taxation and finance, to work efficiently like the former chairman Shivaraj and take measures to increase the revenue. "With the launch of e-governance initiatives, the income to Palike should increase. Else, development works will take a backseat," the chief minister said. Taking a dig at the Palike, he said, "Palike repeatedly asks for grants for development works, but they are not utilised properly. If funds are not given, they criticise us. You (BBMP) don't even have an account of how many properties are ...

The road to change 27.12.2016 Deccan Herald - Supplements
The New Year is just around the corner and Bengalureans wish to see a lot of positive changes take place in the city. Citizens look forward to government agencies, such as BBMP, BMTC and BMRCL, pulling their act together to bring about changes in the city. People want to see a more effective and workable plan replace the existing garbage management programme, wider road and more walkable pedestrian paths. While young Bengalureans want a cleaner and greener place, the older folk feel better transport facilities and last mile connectivity should top the list of priorities in the coming year.
