Don't start work on steel flyover till Jan 18: NGT 20.12.2016 deccanherald.com
The National Green Tribunal on Tuesday directed the Bengaluru Development Authority not to start work on the contentious steel flyover till January 18, 2017. Its southern bench in Chennai said, "No construction activities or anything pertaining to it should be undertaken.'' The tribunal was hearing a petition filed by Citizens Action Forum (CAF) and former Karnataka additional chief secretary S Balasubramaniam. The BDA again pleaded for the stay, ordered on October 28, to be vacated. N S Mukunda, petitioner and founder of CAF, said flyover contractors Larsen & Toubro had promised the court they would abide by its orders. The tribunal, however, said the BDA could carry out soil testing and sample surveys. P N Nayak, BDA engineer-member, said the BDA would immediately start on whatever is allowed by the court. A BDA official said the project was moving closer to reality as the tribunal had on Tuesday allowed two preliminary steps. But those opposing the project don't think so. Rajeev Chandrashekar, MP, ...

Transport dept to tweak rules on app-based taxis on HC's suggestions 11.11.2016 deccanherald.com
The state Transport department has decided to make a few changes to the newly framed Karnataka On-Demand Transportation Technology Aggregators Rules, 2016, following Thursday's high court order, which termed some rules as unconstitutional. "The high court has upheld many rules in favour of the government, while only a few rules were declared unconstitutional. We will revise some of the rules after consulting our legal experts. We are yet to receive a copy of the high court order," Transport Commissioner M K Aiyappa said. He explained: "We have received a lot of complaints from the public in connection with the services of cabs attached to aggregators. There is no safety of passengers particularly women. Hence, rules were framed by consulting experts. The high court has suggested a few changes and we will abide by it," the commissioner added. The High Court had declared seeking access to personal information about passengers, making aggregators provide security deposit of Rs 1 lakh for up to 1,000 taxis ...

Will abide by NGT order on steel flyover, says George 2.11.2016 deccanherald.com
Bengaluru Development Minister K J George on Wednesday said that the government will abide by the National Green Tribunal order on the proposed steel flyover project. Speaking to DH, he said in a democratic set-up, people had the right to approach court. 'No personal interest' "I have no personal interest in the project. It is a project of the state government. Chief Minister Siddaramaiah had announced it in the budget, the cabinet has approved it and it is needed to decongest the city," he said. The minister, however, said that the steel flyover was an integral part of the proposed elevated corridor across the city. "It is not a project in isolation," he said. On October 28, the NGT bench in Chennai had given a four-week stay on the Rs 1,791-crore project, following a petition filed by Citizens' Action Forum and retired IAS officer V Balasubramanian, saying that environment assessment had not be done. The flyover is part of the 120-km elevated north-south, east-west corridors, the minister said. Also, ...

An 'elite' task force for Bengaluru's woes 10.5.2016 TOI: Bangalore Times
More than a decade after the much-publicised Bangalore Agenda Task Force (BATF) shut shop, the Siddaramaiah government is ready with a sequel. It's called the Bengaluru Blue Print Action Group (BBPAG), or the vision group. Headed by the chief minister, the 22-member group, which largely consists of corporate bigwigs, seems more inclined to dazzle than deliver.

The for and against debate 16.12.2015 deccanherald.com
The move to revive BVGhas evoked mixed reactions from urban experts and civic activists. One of the BVG members and civic activist, Kalpana Kar, feels it is the right time to revive BVG. "Now, it is a good time for the government to revive a PPP model to develop the City,'' she said pointing to recent citizen protests like Whitefield Rising, Sarjapur and Hebbal Rising. She feels that PPP model is needed to listen to the voice of the people, specialists and elected representatives while planning for Bengaluru. However, Lok Satta leader and civic activist Ashwin Mahesh says creating such advisory bodies for planning is unconstitutional. "The government is trying to subvert the Constitution by creating the BVG," he said. "The government can ask for advice from anyone. The State has the constitutional obligation to set up a Metropolitan Planning Committee (MPC). Only the MPC has the statutory authority to plan for Bengaluru," Mahesh said. Asked how he had accepted a similar role in Abide set up by the ...
