No civic amenity sites given for Indira Canteens: BDA 14.7.2017 deccanherald.com
Bangalore Development Authority (BDA) has denied that it has given permission to use civic amenity (CA) sites to build Indira Canteens. Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP), which is executing the state government's ambitious project, had identified 14 CA sites across the city to build these canteens. The BBMP had requested joint commissioner of BDA in Bommanahalli zone to allot 1,600 sqft near Subramanyapura lake in Uttarahalli for the Indira Canteen. But the BDA had already allotted the plot for building a hostel for the Forum for Social Interaction in 2009. A senior BDA official said, "We usually give prior notice in the media before allotting such plots for other purposes and we also mention what it will be used for." Meanwhile, BDA commissioner Rakesh Singh said, "It is not possible for us to allot space for Indira Canteens since it is against the rules. BBMP has sought 14 such spots. We can allot land only wherever it is possible." BBMP commissioner N Manjunatha Prasad said, "Where there is no ...

PIL against misuse of National High School grounds: orders reserved 14.7.2017 deccanherald.com
The High Court of Karnataka on Friday reserved its judgement on a PIL seeking ban on non-sporting activities on National High School grounds in Basavanagudi. The Shankarpuram Residents' Welfare Association had filed the PIL. The BBMP had earlier submitted to the court that a resolution was passed in the BBMP council to allow non-sporting events only for five days a month on the ground. The petitioner contended that the residents in the vicinity face threat to their safety and security whenever there is a non-sporting event on the grounds. There is a restriction in vehicular movement, vehicles are parked in a haphazard manner, street vendors occupy the roads and pavements, and due to the absence of proper toilet facilities, there is urination and defecation around the residential area, besides noise and air pollution, the petitioner had stated. In the past, there have been incidents of violence where tear-gas shells were fired and unruly crowds were lathicharged, affecting the residents in the vicinity. ...

Child dies of dengue 13.7.2017 Deccan Herald - City
Dengue has raised its ugly head in the city, claiming the life of a five-year-old boy in Atmajyotinagar, a slum near Nayandahalli on Wednesday. Gokul Nanda fell ill on Monday and was admitted to a private hospital, where the doctors diagnosed him with dengue on Tuesday. "The next day (Wednesday), his parents Shiva and Lakshmi took him to the Victoria Hospital where the child breathed his last," said Shakuntala, a resident of the area. She added that the child fell prey to apathy in Victoria Hospital as the doctors could not diagnose him properly and were in denial that the child had dengue. "The lab test reports of the private hospital have confirmed that Gokul Nanda had dengue," said Shakuntala. Nanda's parents had migrated from Challakere in Chitradurga district a decade ago in search of livelihood and worked as labourers. They had two sons - Gagan and Gokul Nanda. Nanda got admission in a private school under the Right to Education Act and had started attending school a week ago. His parents were ...

HC grants week's time to Palike to settle tax issue with school 13.7.2017 Deccan Herald - City
The High Court of Karnataka on Thursday granted one week's time to BBMP commissioner and the Assistant Revenue Officer (ARO) to settle property tax issue with regard to Aradhana School located at Arakere on Bannerghatta Road. BBMP commissioner N Manjunath Prasad and ARO, Arakere N Prakash were present before the court on Thursday. Justice Vineet Kothari had earlier taken exception to the order passed by the BBMP commissioner, based on a report by ARO who had rejected the application of the school seeking exemption from paying property tax. Under Section 110 (i) (b) of the Karnataka Municipal Corporations Act, 1976, building and land used exclusively for educational purposes by recognised educational institutions are exempted from property tax. The Sisters of Precious Blood, a registered organisation running Aradhana School, moved the high court challenging the order passed by the BBMP commissioner.

End in sight for Kala Soudha deadlock 13.7.2017 Deccan Herald - City
Mayor Padmavathi has said that a decision would be taken on Monday to end the ongoing deadlock between the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike and P D Sathischandra of Prakasam Trust over the lease and rentals of K H Kala Soudha, auditorium which has been shut for the past five months. She said this during her visit to the auditorium on Thursday. The Mayor, after listening to the grievances of the artistes and the Trust, hinted at reducing the rentals of the 300-seater auditorium. The auditorium has remained unused since February owing to a tiff between the Palike and the Trust, and the steep increase of rent. "We encourage the theatre activities. Not all theatre troupes can afford the rent of Rs 40,000. The hike may prove too much for the new troupes. The best way to deal with the issue is to bring down the rent to Rs 25,000 or so, a win-win situation for both theatre troupes and the auditorium," said the mayor. The five-year lease, awarded to PDSathishchandra, to maintain the auditorium terminated in ...

Only 45 locations identified to set up Indira Canteens 13.7.2017 Deccan Herald - City
The Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) has so far identified only 45 locations to set up state government's flagship programme Indira Canteens, offering tiffin and meals at subsidised rates, though barely a month remains for the project launch. The state government had planned to launch the project across 198 wards in one go on August 15. However, preparations are quite tardy. The hunt for open spaces is still in progress. Chief Minister Siddaramaiah had announced the canteen project in March and had directed the BBMP to identify locations. The Palike had identified some parks and playgrounds too in the rush to find suitable locations. Later, it withdrew fearing severe backlash from public and possible wrath of law, which bars any construction activity in parks and playgrounds. A few locations identified by the BBMP were so narrow that trucks bringing pre-cast material from Krishnagiri in Tamil Nadu could not enter the designated places. The Palike had to thus give up its plan. Meanwhile, the ...
