Residents of Whitefield save 115 trees from BMRCL axe 2.12.2017 Deccan Herald - News
Proactive efforts by Whitefield residents has saved nearly 115 trees along the Sri Satya Sai Baba Road from the axe. The Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited wanted to fell nearly 225 trees on the road to clear the way for Namma Metro, but the citizens consulted with the high court-appointed tree committee to see if the trees can be translocated. Locals agitated when the BMRCL felled nearly 65 trees on the stretch. The corporation agreed to join hands when the residents decided to put out a collection to pay for the translocation. "We approached experts for assistance," said Ram, a resident of the area. "They examined the 225 trees along the 1.5 km stretch and said nearly 115 of them, standing 10 feet tall and aged nearly the same, are fit enough to be translocated." The residents then urged the Sri Sathya Sai Institute of Higher Medical Sciences to have the trees planted on their campus. The institution agreed to house all 115 trees. But 50 of the remaining trees will be felled. The trees will be ...

MG Road, Brigade Road to get more CCTV cams, LED screens 29.11.2017 Deccan Herald - News
Criticised for inaction over the purported mass molestation of women on New Years Eve last year, the civic authorities are taking extra precautions this time. Mayor R Sampath Raj has ordered BBMP and police officials to instal CCTV cameras on MG Road and Brigade Road, the citys party hubs. He has also directed that large LED screens be installed on these localities to avert any harassment of, or discomfort to, female revellers. The mayor will also write to the BMRCL to run metro trains round the clock on December 31. BBMP Commissioner N Manjunath Prasad said there were plans to make CCTV cameras mandatory in commercial complexes. The civic body will not renew the trade licences in case of violations. "Traders must show the CCTV footage to the police whenever asked. We are planning to bring a rule to this effect next year," he added. Raj had recently said that Rs 10 lakh had been allotted to each BBMP ward for installation of CCTV cameras. Besides, a centralised control room will be opened where ...

Fine for losing metro token cut to Rs 200 28.11.2017 Deccan Herald - News
A week after increasing the fine for tokenless travel from Rs 50 to Rs 500 to check the menace of missing tokens, the BMRCL has reduced the penalty to Rs 200. An official in the Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) said the decision was taken following media reports that quoted commuters questioning the rationale behind the exorbitant hike. "The revised fine will come into effect on Wednesday," he added. DH was the first to carry a report in this regard. The article In Namma Metro, pay more for losing token than stealing it appeared on November 25. "I am glad metro officials have responded positively. Its unreasonable to penalise metro passengers since they are not travelling without the ticket. In a moving train, some passengers, especially those who travel with children, may lose tokens. Rs 500 fine was too much for such a mistake," said Shivaraj Kottur, a metro commuter who once paid Rs 500 for losing his smart card. The BMRCL official said they had to increase the fine to put an end to ...

Kharola appointed Air India Chief MD 28.11.2017 deccanherald.com
Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) Managing Director Pradeep Singh Kharola, who was empaneled for secretary posts in May, has been appointed chief managing director of Air India. Kharola, known for his efforts in infusing private investment in metro projects through innovative funding, is expected to help the ailing airline which is set for privatisation. The government has been working on selling Air India and NITI Ayog has made recommendations for unbundling the assets of the airline which has an accumulated debt of nearly Rs 50,000 crore. Recently, there have been reports that Air India may not get the Rs 21,000 crore equity infusion, part of Rs 50,000 crore promised during the UPA regime. There was no clarity on Kharolas successor for BMRCL. Kharola leaves the corporation, which had just 8 km of metro line in operation when he came in in 2013, after successfully completing the Phase 1. The corporation is also looking forward to enter the profit-making era with the revenue taking over ...

'MG Road footpath work shoddy' 26.11.2017 deccanherald.com
The footpath on MG Road has been damaged within a few months of being restored by the Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Limited (BMRCL) and the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP). It has been five months since the footpath was restored, but some tiles have already come out. The footpath, which is a part of Rs 37 crore project, has exposed the substandard work carried out by the government agencies. While in some places, the pavement has caved in, tiles have come out in some other places, which might come in the way of pedestrians and there could be chances of them tripping and falling. This might mostly pose a problem for senior citizens. "The BBMP had claimed that the footpath relaid on this road was of international standards. But it is not even fit for pedestrians, physically challenged and senior citizens to walk. As the pathway was laid recently and has worn out in some parts, it gives us a fair idea about the quality of the work that they do. They would have spent crores of rupees on this ...

BMRCL hopes to be in profit by mid-2018 26.11.2017 deccanherald.com
Five months after the entire Phase 1 became operational; Namma Metro is riding strong towards profit making. In fact, BMRTL, which runs the metro, says it would erase its losses by June 2018, post surplus revenue and would begin paying interests on its loans. Until now, the company had to lean rather heavily on the state government for money to keep things going on and off the rails. The companys revenues were in virtual doldrums in 2016-17 as it posted a cash loss of Rs 41.66 crore, but things began looking up after it launched the south line (Sampige Road-Yelachenahalli). A surge in revenue saw the earnings surpass operational costs. "The daily fare revenue has increased from Rs 60 lakh to Rs 95 lakh over the last few months. We have seen ridership going upwards of 3.4 lakh everyday. We hope to see further progress in the coming days," BMRCL public relations officer and General Manager (Finance) U A Vasanth Rao told DH. BMRCLs operational cost stands at about Rs 70 lakh per day. Recently, metro ...

In Namma Metro, pay more for losing token than 'stealing' it 24.11.2017 Deccan Herald - City
When it comes to paying fines on Namma Metro, unlucky passengers who lose travel tickets (tokens) shell out more than memento-seekers who are caught stealing them. The menace of token theft has forced Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation Ltd (BMRCL) to increase the fine for those who lose tokens inside its paid area from Rs 50 to Rs 500. A passenger who lost his travel card on Monday (November 20) was let out of a Metro station only after he paid the fine in addition to the maximum fare as travel cost. "In buses or trains, travelling without tickets attracts a huge fine which is acceptable. But it is hard to understand why the Metro would fine us Rs 500 since one enters the paid area only after buying a valid ticket (token)," said Shivaraj Kottur, who travels between Byappanahalli and JP Nagar every day. When contacted, a Metro official said the fine was increased to deter people from carrying away the tokens. "We have noticed that people make excuses and get away by paying a fine of Rs 50. The Rs 500 fine ...
