The Bangalore Development Authority plans to set up an integrated townships in order to ease traffic on citys main and arterial roads. In the provisional revised master plan 2031, the BDA has specified guidelines to set up townships according to which integrated townships can come up only in areas where minimum width of the access road is 24 metres.

According to a BDA official, there are many big apartment complexes (with and without facilities) and gated communities that have narrow roads.

This was also one of the suggestions citizens made during the BDAs public consultation meetings held in May and June. Talks are on with the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike officials to request those applying for ...

The JD(S), which is trying to make inroads into north Karnataka, has decided to focus its efforts and energies only on 170 out of the 224 Assembly constituencies in the upcoming elections. Though the party will field candidates in all 224 constituencies, its priority will, however, be the 170 constituencies. The party is said to have chalked out a master plan, as per which, it will be dividing the priority constituencies into three categories - A, B and C. The master plan has been prepared based on an internal survey carried out by the party, sources said. While category A comprises 80 constituencies, Category B consists of 90 constituencies. The remaining 10 constituencies will come under Category C. Category A constituencies are the winnable seats, which are largely spread across the old Mysuru and north Karnataka districts. Category B constituencies are those where the party can ensure a victory, provided it makes concerted efforts. This comprises districts in the north and some Hyderabad-Karnataka ...

Desperate heritage rescue 2.12.2017 deccanherald.com
Desperate heritage rescue Shock, anger and a collective sigh of extreme despair greeted the dramatic demolition of the 157-year-old Krumbiegel Hall in Lalbagh last week. It has been a rude wake-up call for all those who value Bengalurus surviving structures and traditions, tagged with pride as our heritage. Is the delayed inclusion of heritage conservation in the Revised Master Plan (RMP 2031) compensation enough? In disrepair for several years, Gustav Hermann Krumbiegels lecture hall had symbolized all that the legendary botanist did to boost the citys green cover. The official machinery was in a hurry to perfect its demolition job, unmindful of the public outcry. It was yet another exhibition of the brute power of the State, bypassing a consultation process that could have helped renovate the structure. A glimmer of hope Now that the deed is done and dusted, a desperate attempt is on to stop the bulldozers. Fortunately for the heritage buffs, the RMP 2031 offers a glimmer a hope. For the first time, ...

Funding must for heritage preservation, say citizens 2.12.2017 deccanherald.com
Funding must for heritage preservation, say citizens The city could now hope for protected heritage sites to cherish the monuments that have weathered centuries of changes and development. The Bangalore Development Authoritys Draft Revised Master Plan-2031 imposes development restrictions in 12 heritage zones, apart from listing out 558 heritage sites for the first time. Even though the move is being appreciated by citizens, a concern that some sites may face damage before they come under the protected label looms large. "It is a good move, but it needs proper implementation. For instance, there is nothing to preserve some sites on the outskirts of the city. By the time they come under the BDAs control, they might face serious damage," says Kalpan Haridas, a retired history professor. She talks about a structure near Jakkur which is apparently under litigation and may face damage if not protected. "There is also a Nandi temple opposite Kadu Malleswara temple, which deserves a mention in the heritage ...

STP to be must for malls, hotels, hospitals 1.12.2017 deccanherald.com
It will soon be mandatory for malls, hotels and hospitals to install sewage treatment plants. The Karnataka State Pollution Control Board says many such establishments fall under the red (most polluting) category, generating more than 100 kilo litres of liquid waste a day, and will have to comply with environmental regulations. The Provisional Revised Master Plan 2031, prepared by the Bangalore Development Authority, also recommends strict anti-pollution measures, board chairman Lakshman said. "We will insist on sewage and effluent treatment plants. We cant ask them to shift out of Bengaluru, but we will issue closure orders if they dont follow central pollution norms," he said. Businesses are not happy. They want the government to improve infrastructure before enforcing such rules. Veerendra N Kamat, Bruhat Bengaluru Hotels Association, said it would be difficult for old establishments to set up sewage treatment plants. "Star hotels can comply, but it wont be easy for smaller hotels," he said. In ...

Bengaluru needs revamp of public transport system 30.11.2017 Deccan Herald - Analysis
Megacities of the world have become engines of economic growth, witnesses of sprawling urbanisation and population explosion in recent decades. Indias capital, New Delhi, has virtually blacked out, thanks to a boom in vehicular traffic-led air pollution. The growth of income levels in all metropolitan cities is much higher than the average per capita income of the country. This shows that wealth concentration is highly polarised towards cities of the world, causing growing inequality in income distribution, on the one hand, and the pleasure for millions of owning a private vehicle, on the other. The per capita income of city dwellers is several times higher than that of rural households. Bengaluru is the countrys IT hub and the most dynamic city in the world, leaving behind Beijing, China, witnessing a rise in per capita income from a mere Rs 28,512 in 2001 to Rs 2,71,387 in 2015. This has directly influenced interest in owning private vehicles, particularly two-wheelers and cars, whose numbers have shot ...
