IAS officer's software to root out duplicate beneficiaries 25.5.2017 deccanherald.com
IAS officer Munish Moudgil has now come out with an improved algorithm which can remove duplication of names of beneficiaries from the database of government departments. At present, the software developed by Moudgil has been used to identify beneficiaries under the newly launched Parihara scheme. It is a scheme under which the Centre's input subsidy is deposited by the state government directly into farmers' bank accounts. Lakhs of farmers have benefited so far under this crop loss compensation scheme. IITian Moudgil, as the Commissioner of Land Records & Survey Settlement, had indigenously developed the name-matching algorithm that gives a graded score. In just a couple of minutes, the software reads thousands of names and after making a comparison, matching scores are generated. In the updated software, the comparison is presented in terms of percentage, Moudgil said. The officer said, "Checking names manually in a huge database like in Aadhaar is time consuming and a challenge too. To overcome this, ...

BMRCL agrees to shift Metro depot away from elephant corridor 25.5.2017 Deccan Herald - City
The Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Ltd (BMRCL) has decided to shift the proposed depot off Kanakapura road after the Forest Department objected to its location saying it was part of the elephant corridor. BMRCL managing director Pradeep Singh Kharola said: "We will locate the depot where it does not create problems. We are discussing this with the government and will find a solution very soon." The row over the Metro's depot came to the fore on May 7, when wild elephants killed two CRPF men at Taralu village near Bannerghatta National Park. Forest officials felt the man-animal conflict will escalate if the land between the Tataguni Estate owned by the Roerich & Devika Rani Estate Board and the CRPF camp, a crucial elephant corridor, is given to BMRCL. As BMRCL stuck to its position, forest officials took the matter to the government. Chief Secretary Subhash Chandra Khuntia intervened and, on Thursday evening, visited the spot with forest and BMRCL officials. "The chief secretary agreed that the place ...

Palike's work on SWD remodelling too late, too little 22.5.2017 Deccan Herald - News
The BBMP has learnt no lessons from rain-related floods of the past. There are 633 stormwater drains (SWDs) measuring 856 km in the city. The BBMP started the work to remodel SWDs and fence them in 2004, but so far it could complete only 142 km. Recently, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah performed the groundbreaking ceremony to remodel 192 km of SWDs at an estimated cost of Rs 700 crore. Still, 522 km SWDs need to be fenced. Most rain-related mishaps take place near lakes and SWDs, but no measures were taken to fence them and remove constructions within their buffer zones. Even the shoulder drains prove dangerous as they are not properly covered or the damaged slabs are not replaced. A former Palike engineer associated with the project told DH he had identified 233 vulnerable points and had emphasised that these points must be covered urgently to prevent flooding. "All my recommendations were consigned to the dustbin. The fallout of trashing my recommendations is there for everyone to see. There is one more ...

The bus stop is used by schoolchildren and scores of others. Mohammed Rafiq Jayanagar Chaos at Udupi Garden signal The Udupi Garden junction in BTM layout is one of the busiest traffic intersections in the city as it leads to the Silk Board junction.
