Amid opposition, BBMP firm on using pothole patcher 21.11.2015 deccanherald.com
The Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) is firm on using the pothole-filling machine Python 5000 even as a section of the corporators claims that the machine is of no use. Speaking to Deccan Herald, Mayor B N Manjunath Reddy said the machine would speed up the pothole-filling exercise in the City and it could even be reused through the tender process. "If the machine is in a good condition, we may consider reusing it," he said. However, leader of the Opposition in the BBMP Council, Padmanabha Reddy, was not in favour of Python 5000. "The machine is of no use and is being used to loot the taxpayers' money. No road maintenance work has been carried out. We will oppose the reuse of it in the Council," he said. Python 5000 is an imported machine introduced on the Bengaluru roads by American Road Technology and Solutions Private Limited (ARTS) after an initiative by the BBMP and the State government. In 2013, the work of filling potholes on arterial and sub-arterial roads - spread across eight different ...

Revised TDR scheme likely 21.11.2015 deccanherald.com
The State government is planning to roll out the revised Transferable Development Rights (TDR) scheme in a month's time. The Urban Development Department (UDD) is finalising the draft rules for implementing TDR so that the Urban Local Bodies (ULBs), including BBMP, can easily acquire land for taking up developmental projects. "Our target is four weeks. The draft is being finalised now. It has to be vetted by the government," UDD secretary T K Anil Kumar said. Under the revised TDR, the value of development rights has been increased to two times the total area to be acquired from the existing 1.5 times. The government has linked the revised TDR to the guidance value of land or building in order to prevent its misuse. A state-level Development Rights Monitoring Authority will be set up to assist people in buying and selling TDRs. The scheme has given an option to property losers to either accept the TDR or seek compensation. Governor Vajubhai Vala recently gave his assent to an amendment bill - the ...

Footpath vendors 'heckle' Palike staff, stop eviction drive 21.11.2015 deccanherald.com
Footpath vendors at the Jayanagar Shopping Complex didn't let the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) staff evict them on Saturday during their unsuccessful drive that was punctuated by heated arguments. The drama unfolded when Palike officials came forward to evict traders who had encroached on the footpath inside the commercial complex located at Jayanagar 4th Block. The staff almost seized the wares being sold on the footpath. The vendors were enraged at seeing the Palike officials and started arguing with them. They didn't let them conduct the eviction drive. Things almost went out of control when some vendors reportedly abused the officials and asked them to go back. Members of the BBMP's Market Standing Committee said the vendors had been issued notices and were instructed a couple of weeks ago to remove all their belongings. "Sandals, clothes, bags and other wares are dumped on the footpath for eight feet inside the complex. We received complaints from the public as well as a few traders ...
