Confusion over extent of lake encroachment 27.4.2017 deccanherald.com
Tahsildar of Bengaluru East taluk N Tejas Kumar said survey and demarcation of the boundaries of Varthur and Bellandur lakes has begun. He claimed 16 acres of land around Bellandur lake has been encroached upon. However, sources in the government claim the extent of encroachment is much higher. They say at least 36 acres of Bellandur lake land has been encroached upon. This is apart from the encroachment of wetland between Bellandur and Varthur lakes. A top official in the government requesting anonymity said, "The district revenue officials have not surveyed Bellandur lake properly. They have protected some powerful builders who have built apartments. The target are only the slum dwellers and some vacant land. I am fully aware that at least 36 acres of lake land has been encroached upon." The officer said satellite images should be used to survey the area since the survey sketch prepared by the revenue officials is full of flaws. He suggested employing an independent agency to survey the lake. However, ...

They say all you need is love and a cup of coffee. And coffee fans who can't kickstart their day without a mug of this steaming, hot drink will vouch for the magic-like properties of this beverage that seems like a liquid hug to your brain. Which is why a great expresso-flavoured cheer went up in the air when India Post recently launched new coffee scented stamps in Bengaluru. Priced at Rs 100, this is the fourth fragrant stamp that India Post has issued, adding to its collection of sandalwood, rose and jasmine. "This is a wonderful initiative by the government. The stamp will be a wonderful collector's item; a true treasure for any philatelist as well as coffee lovers because after all, who doesn't love the heady aroma of a good brew?" says Mihika Mavinkurve, a nutritionist.

Union Minister Nirmala Sitharaman to aid revival of Kalena Agrahara lake 22.4.2017 deccanherald.com
Union Minister of State for Commerce and Industries Nirmala Sitharaman on Saturday announced that Kalena Agrahara lake off Bannerghatta Road will be restored by March 2018 under local area development (MP-LAD) funds. A part of the cost will be shared by the state government. The Rajya Sabha MP, however, sought to avoid controversy by stating that her role was limited to the development project and does not include reclaiming the encroached land in keeping with the National Green Tribunal orders. "I am not here to remove encroachment. I am here to make sure that the plan to develop the lake becomes a reality," she said. The small lake is choking with sewage and may soon suffer the same fate as that of Bellandur lake and others in the city. BBMP Commissioner Manjunath Prasad said more than two acres of the 7.5-acre lake land has been encroached upon by several buildings. "According to the official files, the roads abutting the lake, the compound wall of an apartment and many houses fall within the lake ...

Special court on land grab cases gets no help from Bengaluru dist officials 6.4.2017 deccanherald.com
The Bengaluru urban district administration, which is dealing with more than 6,000 cases of land encroachment, could move only eight cases to the anti-land grabbing special court in the last seven months though the district headquarters is barely a few metres away from the court. Perturbed by the indifferent attitude of the district administration, the special court has now decided to act on V Balasubramanian's report 'Greed and Connivance'. It has set itself a target of disposing of at least 4,000 cases and to initiate action against land sharks. The Balasubramanian committee had found encroachment of 12 lakh acres of government land across the state. Ten days ago, the court had directed district authorities across the state to send the list of land grabbers with documents. Bengaluru Urban district authorities are among those who have not responded, despite being located close to the court. The range forest officers of six districts have so far sent the list and relevant papers. The court has warned the ...

Solar scam: order against ex Kerala CM set aside 5.4.2017 Deccan Herald - State
A local court on Wednesday set aside an ex parte decree asking former Kerala chief minister Oommen Chandy and others to pay around Rs 1.60 crore along with interest, in the solar scam case.

The additional city civil court, on October 24, 2014, had asked Chandy and five others to pay Rs 1,60,85,700 with interest at 12%, in a cheating case filed by Bengaluru-based real estate consultant, M K Kuruvilla.

Judge N R Channakeshava observed that Chandy did not get an opportunity of hearing. Chandy, who appeared before the court on January 2, 2017, had filed an affidavit denying charges against him.

Chandy had contended that he was implicated in the case "unnecessarily and mischievously," with a fraudulent intent to defame him and gain publicity. The Congress leader had also mentioned in the affidavit that he had no connection with five others in the case with whom Kuruvilla had business. He accused Kuruvilla of misleading the court obtaining the ex parte decree behind his back.
