Legislative AssemblySpeaker Kagodu Thimmappa on Monday constituted a house committee to inquire into encroachment of lakes in and around Bangalore. The 11-member committee will be headed by Congress MLAKBKoliwad. The Speaker has directed that the panel submit its report along with recommendations in three months.

Former chief minister HDKumaraswamy had alleged that 1,039 acres of lake land have been encroached upon between 2006 and 2011 in and around Bangalore and the market value of the encroached land was estimated at a whopping Rs 24,000 crore.

Teppostava at Sankey tank irks environmentalists 27.10.2014 deccanherald.com
Green groups saw red and fumed against religious celebrations at Sankey tank, after permission was granted to the Lakshminarasimha Swami Temple, Malleswaram, to organise Teppotsava (boat procession for the deity) on Sunday evening. The activists have lodged a complaint against the temple at the Sadashivnagar police station. This is not the first time an event has been organised at the tank. Recently, a flugtag event was organised with generators, lights and music around the lake. Protesting against such public events at the water body, Madhuri Subbarao, member of One Bengaluru for Lakes, said that it is a clear violation as the government must not allow any public events inside the lake that harm the eco-system. "I am not sure how much the Gods will be happy worshipped amidst sewage water, but people will surely kill the sanctity of the lake. Organising such an event is clearly against the Supreme Court directions and calls for contempt," she added. She said that teppotsava uses large-scale lighting ...

Committee unaware of lakes under its jurisdiction 24.10.2014 deccanherald.com
The District Lake Protection Committee appears to have become a moribund institution given its record in restoring or protecting the lakes and tanks in the City. On September 19, 2013, when the High Court cracked the whip, the State government formed the Bangalore Metropolitan Region Lake Protection Committee (BMRLPC) headed by the Bangalore Development Authority (BDA) Commissioner. On the other hand, the district committee comprised the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Lake Development Authority (LDA) and the Deputy Conservator of Forest, Bangalore Urban District. The apex committee, headed by the principal secretary of the Revenue department, will have the CEO of LDA and member secretary of the State Legal Services Authority as members to oversee the maintenance of lakes by these committees. However, even with all this in place, it seems like BMRLPC is not aware of the lakes under its jurisdiction. The committee has neither set its priorities nor prepared any action plan with other agencies to ...
