BJP: Krishna Byre Gowda's followers grabbed prime land 4.3.2017 Deccan Herald - News
BJP leader N R Ramesh on Saturday said supporters of Agriculture Minister Krishna Byregowda have grabbed 22 acres and 35 guntas of government land in North Bengaluru taluk. Addressing reporters, Ramesh said the land is in survey number 103 of village Kodagala Hatti in Hunasamaranahalli village panchayat in Jala hobli. The cost of the land in the open market today is Rs 250 crore as it is close to the Kempegowda International Airport. Land grabbers have succeeded in grabbing around 5,000 acres of government land and are now eyeing this chunk of land. Some government officials too have connived with these land sharks and created bogus land records claiming to be owners of the land. Small sheds have come up on this piece of land and records they possess show that they have been living there for more than two decades. Further, these people were given hakku patra (land holding documents) too. "These hakku patras are bogus and have been created in active connivance with panchayat officials," added Ramesh. When ...

Stamps & Registration department unlikely to meet revenue target 3.3.2017 Deccan Herald - News
The Stamps and Registration department is likely to fall short of its budgetary target by around Rs 1,300 crore for the current financial year due to decline in property registrations. However, other major resources generating departments of the state government - Commercial Taxes, State Excise and Transport will meet their budgetary target set for 2016-17. With less than two weeks to go for the presentation of state budget proposals for 2017-18, Chief Minister Siddaramaiah on Friday held a review meeting with top officials of the four revenue generating departments. According to sources, the Stamps and Registration department will fall short of its budgetary target of Rs 9,100 crore by 15%. The reason is not just demonetisation. The decline in property registrations commenced much before demonetisation. It began in October last with the lakebed encroachment clearance drive hitting the sale of apartments in a big way, the sources said. Commercial Taxes is all set to meet its target (Rs 51,338 crore), ...

Residents emphasise local solutions to address water woes 25.2.2017 Deccan Herald - News
Summer is just around the corner and water woes have already gripped Bengalureans. In the past few years, the demand for water has been on rise in most of the areas due to depletion of water table. An increase in high-rise apartments, townships and villas has led to indiscriminate digging of borewells, depleting groundwater levels. On the other hand, water scarcity has become widespread. To understand the concerns better, DH speaks to residents and water experts. Ayyappa M Masagi, founder, Water Literacy Foundation, says, 15-20 years back, rainfall was periodic, giving the soil surface sufficient time to percolate the rainwater into the sub soil. "Gradually, the city drifted towards rapid industrialisation and boom in real estate industry, led to the encroachment of lakes by the builders," he explains. Bengaluru founder Kempegowda had constructed 382 lakes. Only a few survive. The government, he says, is spending money only on drilling new borewells but is not concerned about sustaining the water table ...

CM shielding Jarkiholi despite I-T raids: BSY 12.2.2017 Deccan Herald - News
State BJP president B S Yeddyurappa on Sunday demanded that Small Scale Industries Minister Ramesh Jarkiholi be removed from the council of ministers immediately in the wake of I-T raids at his residence and office in Belagavi recently. Unaccounted for cash to the tune of Rs 162 crore was seized during the raids, but the chief minister is shamelessly protecting the minister, Yeddyurappa charged at a press conference. In another raid by the I-T department recently, a large amount of unaccounted for money and properties from Congress MLA M T B Nagaraj were seized. But no action was taken against the MLA. Besides, the chief minister is protecting former minister Shivaraj Tangadagi, who was reportedly involved in a Rs 42-crore fake bill scam in Kushtagi in Koppal district, he charged. He also charged the government with conniving with illegal sand mafia and causing loss of revenue to the state exchequer. A checkpost near Attibele near Bengaluru was closed recently, resulting in some 800 lorries illegally ...

BDA forced to rethink on reducing green space in city 1.2.2017 deccanherald.com
The Bangalore Development Authority's (BDA) proposal in the master plan 2031 to reduce green spaces in the city to make way for more urbanisation has not gone down well with Bengalureans. Citizens' outrage during public consultations forced the BDA to re-look at the city's green belt while drafting the master plan. In some feedback forms, people questioned the government on what measures it has taken to save lakes from encroachment and to create new parks in the earmarked civic amenity sites. One of the options the BDA had listed for developing the city for 2031 was to shift green spaces, except listed parks and playgrounds, to border areas of Bengaluru and create 100- to 150-acre sparks. A BDA town planning official told DH that people opposed a change in the land use pattern in the city. "We were thinking of opening part of the 419 sq km of the existing agricultural and green zone for development and create another 400 acres of green space in 251 villages around the city. This was proposed because ...
