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 ...

Monsoon flooding, an annual feature here 19.10.2014 deccanherald.com
The first thing that strikes you about Chickpet, Avenue Road and Balepet areas is that they are the most important trading markets in the ''city'' part of Bangalore, as opposed to the Cantonment area. You would think of jewellery, saris, textiles, aluminium, hardware and the like. But during rainy season, all you would think of would be narrow roads, congestion, heavy traffic, drainages full of muck and leaking water that puts off both traders and customers. More than the traffic and congestion, it is the drainage system here that bothers traders. The underground drain connections have been built almost 50-70 years back. While the surface areas around the manholes have been repaired to an extent, lot remains to be done in the underground networks. Avenue Road Commercial Association president G V Sridhar says the rainy season is really bad for the place. "The entire area is flooded with water that gushes into shops. Owners have had to spend whole days to remove water from their inundated shops. If the ...

'Forged documents used to legalise lake encroachment' 17.10.2014 deccanherald.com
Former legislator A T Ramaswamy, who had submitted a report on encroachment of government land, has said the problem in Chikkalasandra Lake is not that of encroachment but of the forged document created to legalise the illegality. Speaking on the sidelines of an event here on Thursday, Ramaswamy pointed out two aspects of illegal takeover of any government land. Connivance "There are two issues involved in the case of illegal possession of public land, for instance, Chikkalasandra Lake. First is the encroachment, which is taken over by some individuals without any valid documents to prove their occupancy. The second aspect is land-grabbing where bogus documents are created by the land sharks in connivance with the government officials to legalise illegal possession of public land. The land-grabbing is a serious offence and needs to be dealt with iron hand," said Ramaswamy. Diversion of land use He sought to know how the layout came up on Chikkalasandra Lake with the diversion of land use by the ...

Separate enclosure soon for jumbos at Bannerghatta zoo 17.10.2014 deccanherald.com
Fifteen-year-old Sundar, the tortured elephant shifted to Bannerghatta Biological Park (BBP) from a temple in Kolhapur, Maharashtra, has come as a blessing for other jumbos in the park. The BBP, for the first time, will have a separate space of around 49.5 hectares for pachyderms. People for Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) will spend over Rs 1.5 crore to create the elephant enclosure and erect solar fence around it. The area reserved for jumbos has two lakes for the animals to cool off. The main intention of having a designated space is to keep the elephants unchained and to have a protected barrier between the elephants and humans including mahouts and wildlife vets. The enclosure will have a "friendly" barrier and the much-needed "musth enclosure" for the bull elephants. BBP Executive Director Range Gowda said that the move for a separate enclosure came following a memorandum of understanding entered into between the BBP and Central Zoo Authority. "The MoU says that a separate enclosure must be ...
