Proceedings against coffee planters in BRT tiger reserve stayed 29.4.2017 deccanherald.com
The High Court of Karnataka stayed the proceedings against Emerald Haven Estates Ltd accused of encroaching upon a tiger reserve. The forest department had issued a notice to the company saying that Bedaguli Coffee Estate owned by it had encroached upon 327.1 acres of land inside the Biligiri Ranganatha Swamy Temple (BRT) Wildlife Sanctuary. Hearing the petition, a division bench comprising Chief Justice S K Mukherjee and Justice P S Dinesh Kumar restrained the forest department and the assistant conservator of forest, Chamarajnagar from interfering in the petitioner's plantation activities. Besides cultivating coffee, the estate also grows pepper and certain seasonal fruits and has between 300 and 400 workers. The petitioner had moved the court earlier too challenging the chief conservator of forest's (CCF) notice asking them to vacate the tiger reserve area as their activity was not compatible with the reserve forest area meant for wildlife. However, a division bench, in its order, had said the CCF ...

Eco-sensitive zones around state forest patches being redefined 14.4.2017 Deccan Herald - State
The state forest department and the Ministry of Environment and Forests and Climate Change (MoEFCC) are now redefining the boundaries of eco-sensitive zones around forest patches of Karnataka. So far, of the 39 protected areas in Karnataka, only Bandipur Tiger Reserve had a defined eco-sensitive zone boundary. But soon, nine more will be added. Following the meeting held in February by members of the expert committee of MoEFCC on defining buffer zones, the Karnataka forest department on March 11 sent a proposal to the state and central governments giving a detailed map and areas of the ESZs of nine forest patches — BRT, MM Hills, Bannerghatta, Melkote, Ranganthittu, Chincholi, Bhadra, Ramadevarabetta and Nugu, said a forest department official. The government is still awaiting a response from the Centre on the list of another 15 to define ESZs. "We sent the draft notification to the MoEFCC for its approval in January," the official added.

High Court quashes govt order on BRT land 16.3.2017 Deccan Herald - News
In a setback to the state government, the Karnataka High Court on Thursday quashed the government order directing coffee plantations to vacate the Biligiri Ranganatha Swamy Temple Wildlife Sanctuary. Disposing of a petition filed by Emerald Estates Ltd and others, a division bench headed by Justice S K Mukherjee in its order said that the CCF cannot pass an order as it is the jurisdiction of the Forest Settlement Officer. CCF had issued a notice to the petitioner in December 2015 saying that the coffee estate is not compatible with the BRT tiger reserve. The petitioner has contended that they were granted around 320 acres of land way back in 1870s and 1880s. Kappatagudda case The Karnataka High Court on Thursday refused to interfere in a PIL seeking directions to the state to restrain it from issuing the final notification in declaring Kappatagudda in Gadag district as a 'conservation reserve forest.' A division bench headed by Chief Justice S K Mukherjee had earlier restrained the government from ...

Wildfire in Chikkamagaluru destroys teak plantation 27.2.2017 Deccan Herald - State
Even before the Forest Department could cope with back-to-back wildfires in Bandipur and BRT tiger reserves, another fire in Madhuguni forest in the Balehonnur range of Chikkamagaluru district has made officials edgier. The wildfire was caused by an electrical spark in the 11 kV power line between Balehonnur and NR Pura on Monday, according to an initial investigation by local forest officials. Dry trees and leaves quickly spread the fire which went on to gut a 10-hectare teak plantation in the forest patch in just two hours. "We got to know about the fire at 11.30 am and brought it under control by 1.30 pm," Basavarajaiah, Deputy Conservator of Forests, Koppa territorial forest division, told DH. This is the first time that a deciduous forest has caught fire, the forest official exclaimed. Drought and hot weather have made forests vulnerable to fires. Linemen inspected the power line after the fire was doused and rectified the error. The Forest Department is considering filing a complaint against the ...

A day after fire broke out in the Kalkere range of Bandipur Tiger Reserve (BTR) killing a forest guard, fire engulfed the Gundre range on Sunday morning. The two wildfires have been captured by Nasa's satellites.

BDA draws up blueprint to meet city's growth in 2031 5.1.2017 deccanherald.com
The Bengaluru Development Authority (BDA) has given a glimpse of the year 2031 in order to seek the opinion from people for the preparation of the Revised Master Plan-2031 (RMP-2031). The planning authority has projected the city's population to be 2.03 crore. In view of this exponential growth, BDA has proposed 42 new planning districts. "The change in administrative boundaries, the desire to use planning districts as planning tools and for the enforcement and implementation of plan proposals, are the reasons for change or revision and establishing the jurisdiction of planning districts for the RMP-2031." The BDA foresees severe traffic congestion in the city where vehicular trips increase by more than three times. There will be a substantial decline in public transport share and bus frequency would reduce to less than half even with double the fleet. During peak hours, vehicular speed will be less than five kmph. It goes on to state that Metro Phase-II will not be able to solve the city's traffic woes ...
