BBMP to distribute, monitor saplings through app 24.6.2017 deccanherald.com
The BBMP has now come up with a unique idea to increase the green cover in the city and also to ensure that it is well maintained. The BBMP has announced distribution of 10 lakh saplings to Bengalureans, but the catch is that they will have to order the saplings through the corporation's newly launched app (bbmp.sahaya.in). "The idea of making people purchase the saplings through the app is to have a record of the buyers. With this record, we will be able to check the status of the saplings," said BBMP Assistant Conservator of Forests Ratna Prabha. "Demand for saplings has always been there. People plant a sapling, but do not maintain it. We have always faced the wrath of people for not planting the required saplings and maintaining them. But this time, people will have to maintain them and we will check them. We will conduct periodic drives and check the condition of the saplings," said another BBMP Forest Cell official. The app was launched a month ago and since then, the BBMP has received requests ...

State wants 4.98L ha dropped from deemed forest list 22.6.2017 deccanherald.com
The state Cabinet on Thursday gave its approval for filing an affidavit before the Supreme Court, seeking that 4.98 lakh hectares be dropped from the deemed forest classification. Briefing reporters after the meeting, Law Minister TB Jayachandra said 17.62 lakh hectares had been classified as deemed forest in the state. Revenue land with features of forest and having 50 trees per hectare is identified as deemed forest. However, a survey revealed that large tracts of land were classified as deemed forest despite lacking the required features. Jayachandra said the government had sought reports from each district on the status of deemed forest. District in-charge ministers had been entrusted with the responsibility to ensure the reports are submitted on time. An expert committee to decide on the extent of deemed forest had also been constituted by the government. He said the government will soon file its affidavit before the Supreme Court, which is hearing a case on the status of deemed forests in the ...

Two boys stand up for their favourite tree 22.6.2017 deccanherald.com
"Trees are home to small flora and fauna. They also have the right to live as much as they can and should not be axed for our right of way.'' This message from two boys has saved a 30-foot-tall fig tree from being axed near Bellandur lake. Parth Choudhary (9) and his brother Arjun Choudhary (7), residents of Euphoria Apartments next to Bellandur lake, have given a new lease of life to their favourite fig tree in their apartment complex. The roots of the tree were hindering the sewage line. "It all started around four months back, when the apartment association decided to improve the sewage line. It was found that the tree's roots were damaging the sewage line. The association members decided to uproot the tree. Parth and Arjun revolted when the contractors started chopping the branches. The boys' questions made us think and in one month, we found a solution. But we decided to implement it during monsoon and in the last two days, the tree was saved," said Prashanth Choudhary, their father. The children ...

An escape to Coonoor 21.6.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
A long weekend that would enable us to indulge in a getaway was soon approaching. The three families who would be travelling together were scrutinising the feasible destinations, as one of us proposed Coonoor. A small town nestled in the Nilgiri Hills in Tamil Nadu, it's a nature lover's paradise. Luxuriant scenic hills, boundless acres of tea estates, pristine lakes, cloudy misty mountaintops, beautiful gardens and chilly weather are just a few of the virtues that Coonoor offers. How did we go? We drove from Bengaluru to Coonoor by car, starting at 5 am on a Friday. Breakfast was at Kamat Upachar on the Bengaluru-Mysuru highway, after which we headed to Masinagudi and then to Ooty. From there, we followed the directions sent to us by our host to reach Shunyata Homestay in Coonoor by lunch time. What did we do? The moment we got out of our car, we could feel the tranquility of the place. The view was refreshing — we were surrounded by lush greenery as far and wide as the eyes could behold. We ...

Amendments to APMC Act on cards: agri price panel head 19.6.2017 deccanherald.com
Karnataka State Agricultural Price Commission chairman PrakashBKammaradi on Monday said the commission will submit a proposal to the government to bring in amendments to Agricultural Produce Market Committee (APMC) Act.

Wait over, enthusiasts scramble to get window seats 18.6.2017 deccanherald.com
The lucky few who managed to get tickets for the maiden Metro train from Yelachenahalli station to Kempegowda station on Sunday were greatly excited about the journey. Grabbing tokens after waiting in long queues, they ran to catch the glimpse of the first train. Age was no bar for the excitement as both children and elders were seen taking selfies with the green coaches in the backdrop. Children were seen running around with bunches of green and purple balloons. Once they got into the coaches, they rushed towards window seats, child-like. As the train chugged out with a jerk, many clicking pictures lost balance momentarily. Those at the window seats fixed their eyes outside. The commuters expressed joy when the train approached Lalbagh, at the welcome sight of abundant greenery. For a few moments, Bengaluru seemed to be a Garden City once again after all the ignominies it has gained in recent years. Each time the train arrived at the next station, those inside peeped out to gauge the size of the crowd. ...
