Apartment dwellers oppose BWSSB's new order on STPs 30.4.2017 deccanherald.com
Dwellers in small apartment are up in arms against Bangalore Water Supply and Sewerage Board (BWSSB) for making Sewage Treatment Plants (STP) and dual piping system mandatory. They refuse to follow new rules despite the Board setting a December 31, 2017-deadline. Members of Bangalore Apartments' Federation (BAF) said that it is practically impossible for the existing apartments having 50 and more residential units to set up STPs. A final notification was issued by BWSSB asking owners or the occupiers of apartments, commercial establishments and educational institutions to set up STP and dual piping system on April 21, 2017. BAF which claims to have support of more than 250 apartment associations has decided against the new rule in every possible way. "Vested interests are behind this new norm.

The move is illogical," said general secretary, ...

Some farmers sell their mangoes to private companies for treatment and sale, and some others send it to Innova Agri Bio Park Limited in Malur in Kolar district for treatment and sale," explained another KSMDMCL official. Hot water treatment of mangoes is mandatory before exporting them to many European and Gulf nations. The ...
