HC censures Palike for doing little to check pollution 17.2.2015 deccanherald.com
The High Court has censured the Bruhat Bangalore Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) for not acting on its earlier order to check noise and air pollution in the City. Hearing a suo motu Public Interest Litigation (PIL) petition on Monday, a division bench of Chief Justice D H Waghela and Justice Ram Mohan Reddy expressed displeasure over the delay by the BBMP in filing a memo on developing at least one footpath in Bengaluru as a model pavement by removing encroachments on it and ensuring smooth traffic on the road. The counsel for the BBMP submitted that footpaths on Cubbon Road up to Dickenson Road and Race Course Road would be cleared of encroachments and the roads made pollution-free, prompting the bench to remark, "Why don't you take some other roads? This is like treating a healthy person and neglecting the unhealthy. What is the use of our exercise of hearing the case?" The bench continued, "The BBMP commissioner came and made too many statements. You have no concern for orders of the court? Or the ...

Pollution control board to implement Bhure Lal report 14.2.2015 deccanherald.com
In an attempt to reduce the increasing air pollution in the City, the Karnataka State Pollution Control Board (KSPCB) has decided to implement the Bhure Lal Committee report. The report on air pollution was approved by the Supreme Court in 2000. Speaking to Deccan Herald, KSPCB chairman Vaman Acharya said the City is becoming like Beijing when it comes to pollution. The two cities have high vehicular air pollution levels. To control it, the department is planning to implement the recommendations of the Bhure Lal committee report, which has not been done in totality till date in many Indian cities, including Bengaluru. Bhure Lal was the Chairman of the Environment Pollution (Prevention and Control) Authority (EPCA) and a member of the Monitoring Committee on Sealing set up by the Supreme Court. In 1999-2000 he prepared a report on environmental pollution and the ways to curb it. The report was tabled in the court pertaining to pollution levels in Delhi.

Toxic flows the water 1.2.2015 deccanherald.com
Unchecked and unregulated, hundreds of electroplating and e-waste recycling units in the City's industrial pockets discharge highly polluting chemicals into the water streams and lakes. From a distance, the lake appeared deceptively picturesque. The mountain of white, syrupy foam on its surface lent an aura of filmy fantasy to the setting. But one closer, probing look sufficed to bring home the ugly truth in all its horror:A deadly concoction of phosphates, nitrates and myriad industrial pollutants had combined to create that lather effect. It was a morbid sign that the lake was in deep decay, just a step away from eventual death! Threatened to extinction, it was a loud warning: That the city's 86 surviving lakes would meet a similar fate. Most surely it would, if immediate steps weren't underway to stem the blatant inflow of untreated domestic and industrial sewage. Only four city lakes have recovered from the deadly onslaught of these toxic pollutants, as Karnataka State Pollution Control Board (KSPCB) ...
