Sarjapur Rd widening: property losers plan to move court 23.9.2017 Deccan Herald - City
More than 120 property owners have submitted their objections to the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) against widening of Sarjapur Road from Iblur Junction to Chikkanayakanahalli. They are also planning to move the court if the Palike did not address their concerns. The BBMP plans to widen the road for introducing cycle tracks and to accommodate metro train which may come up in the area in the coming days. "It is true that there is no plan for metro on this stretch. But we have to widen the road in such a way that there will not be any problems in future" said a senior BBMP official. However, people who stand to lose their properties, term the Palikes decision "dictatorial." They say that the local body had not conducted any social impact assessment which is mandatory before taking up any huge project. Besides, property owners will be compensated only through issue of transferable development rights (TDR). They have no option to claim compensation in the form of money. Chinnappa Reddy, who runs ...

BMRCL shifts Anjanapura depot to private land 22.9.2017 deccanherald.com
BMRCL has changed the location of the Anjanapura depot after a row over its original proposal to build the depot in Bhuthanahalli reserve forest land, which has been identified as a prime elephant corridor. The Forest Department had strongly objected to BMRCL's proposal to build a depot on 6.33 hectares of land in survey numbers 124 and 126. The chief secretary had to intervene on the issue following which a new patch of land near NICE Road has been identified. "We have now sorted out the issue. The Forest Department has given an in-principle approval for acquiring land for the depot next to NICE Road. Since acquiring forest land will create problems, we have identified private land of 15 to 20 acres on the right hand side of Kanakapura Road," he said. According to the new plan, the depot will come up at the corner near the intersection of Nice Road and Thalaghatpura Main Road (Pipe Line Road). "After crossing the NICE Road junction, the Metro line will will reverse and run for nearly a kilometre to ...

Make KRERA work, else it'll damage state's economy 17.9.2017 Deccan Herald - Analysis
The Karnataka government had notified the Karnataka Real Estate Regulation Act (KRERA) on July 10, 2017, after an inordinate delay and with much reluctance. This followed the central RERA Act, passed in May 2016, mandating implementation by all states by July 2017 as 'land use' comes under the domain of the states. The intention of the law is to regulate the opaque real estate sector, which is the epicentre of unaccounted money, with well-defined roles and rules for developers, brokers and customers. Projects with a land size of 500 sqm (5,382 sft), or eight apartments, or more come under RERA and must be compulsorily registered with the state regulatory authority. A few exceptions have been permitted. 1. Residential/commercial projects for which occupancy certificates (OC) have been received prior to May 2017, applied for OC after May 01, 2017, and received the OC approval during the 90-day window by July 31, 2017, are exempted from the KRERA. It is clear that builders cannot escape RERA compliance by ...

Bangalore Development Minister K J George and Housing Minister M Krishnappa on Saturday inaugurated the new flyover at KEB Junction near Hosakerehalli.

"We have bought eight robot machines to remove silt in stormwater drains. We are already using one of these machines in HSR Layout and Hennur. We have also called for tenders to maintain the machine," said George. BBMP commissioner N Manjunath Prasad said, "The flyover near Dollars Colony is almost 70% complete.

Exhibition shows how growing city is destroying its peri-urban areas 15.9.2017 deccanherald.com
A photo exhibition by scholars from Azim Premji University highlights how the unbridled growth of the city has forced whole societies into degradation. The photos show farmers who "shifted from cultivating 4 acres of ragi to 0.5 acres of vegetables" and baby corn grown from "perennial sewage" fed farming in Vrishabhavati valley in Byramangala. "Research has shown that vegetables and milk consumed in Bengaluru city contain harmful heavy metals. Essentially, what the city sends out essentially comes back to it," said Dhanya Bhaskar, a faculty member at the university. She said a team of three research scholars and collaborators from other universities, including foreign institutions, were tracing the harm done to peri-urban and suburban areas around Bengaluru. "All these changes have happened over the last 10 years and it is very difficult to trace them. After one year into the research, we can say that more than 50% of farming area has been claimed by the growth of the city and its industries," she ...

BMRCL set to miss the train at Whitefield, KR Puram in Phase 2 15.9.2017 Deccan Herald - City
Amid the row over relocation of the Cantonment Metro station, BMRCL seems to be wading into a controversy with Whitefield and KR Puram too as the two proposed Metro stations in Phase 2 remain far from railway stations. The Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Ltd (BMRCL) uploaded a map detailing the alignment of Baiyappanahalli-Whitefield line and the 13 stations along the 15.5-km corridor. While authorities have not changed much of the alignment or station locations, hopes of an integrated transport are dashed as the Metro stations are separated from the two key railway stations. While the Metro station at Whitefield will be situated about 700 metres from the railway station, at KR Puram, the busy Outer Ring Road (ORR) runs between the railway station and the Metro station coming up on the premises of Lowry Adventist College. Namma Metro has attracted criticism with several of its stations remaining inaccessible. At Majestic and Yeshwantpur, where Metro stations have been functioning for over an year, ...

Unused industrial land to be returned to owners 14.9.2017 deccanherald.com
The state government is set to return to owners a large chunk of unutilised land - 25,740 acres - that was earmarked for industrial purpose across the state. These lands, spread across Belagavi, Haveri, Kalaburagi, Gadag, Chitradurga, Bagalkot and Chamarajanagar districts, have remained unused for the past nine years. They were identified for the creation of a land bank by the previous BJP regime under the Suvarna Karnataka Development Corridor (SKDC) project in 2008. The SKDC comprises five major corridors covering 11 districts and 20 major towns along highways, major roads and rain links. "A large extent of land remains unused because they are located in places where industries cannot be set up," Industries Minister R V Deshpande told DH. "So naturally, we will have to return those lands, for which only preliminary notification has been issued. I will bring this before the Cabinet." This will be the second parcel of unutilised industrial land that the State government will be returning to the owners. ...
