BDA's revised RMP has no solution to commercialisation of residential areas 27.11.2017 Deccan Herald - News
Despite repeated talks about rampant commercialisation in residential areas, few plans have been proposed to prevent it in the Bangalore Development Authoritys draft revised master plan (RMP) of 2031, released recently. Although the plan proposes to reduce the extent of commercial establishments in residential areas to some extent, there has been no specification or the methods that will be adopted for the same. With more number of commercialisation complaints coming from Indiranagar and Koramangala, the draft RMP-2031 proposes restricting further commercialisation and proposes to reduce the extent from 4.56% to 1.58% in the coming years. However, the plan does not talk about the methods in which it has to be dealt with. Vijayan Menon, from Citizens Action Forum, who has been actively fighting against the rampant commercialisation said: "The current master plan is all good on papers, but the time has come where they have to focus at the governance." When it comes to Austin Town, Koramangala and HSR ...

With eye on future growth, KIA plans third runway 1.11.2017 deccanherald.com
A third runway is in the agenda of the Kempegowda International Airport (KIA), preparing well in advance to cater to an annual passenger turnout of 65 million in the future. Dubbed as the New North Parallel Runway (NNPR), this has been a critical part of the airports original master plan. But there is a problem. Due to the prevalent airspace restrictions, the location recommended for NNPR is 1,500 metres north of the existing runway. The plot falls way outside the airports boundary. The effort now is to ensure that Obstacles Limitation Surfaces (OLS) is safeguarded.Simply put, this means objects detrimental to aviation should not be located within the Obstacle Restriction Area of the airport. Only equipment and installations required for air navigation purposes, of minimum practicable mass and height, could be placed in the area. This is to reduce the hazard to aircraft to a minimum. High-rise buildings and other objects that could potentially impede aircraft landings and take-offs will not be ...

Bengaluru to go vertical with 900 high-rises 20.10.2017 deccanherald.com
With land availability shrinking, Bengaluru is embracing vertical development and going the Mumbai way. About 900 high-rise buildings are set to come up in the city, more than the number that came up in the last four years, Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) statistics show. Vertical growth became imminent in 2006, when the civic body started issuing Transfer of Development Rights (TDR), granting permission for additional built-up area in return for plot portions taken up for public projects. Four-fifths of the TDRs issued to landowners were transferred to real estate developers. The BDA has also given a push for vertical development in its 2007-15 Comprehensive Development Plan by increasing the floor-area ratio. This allows for the use of more space on a plot for construction. Since last year Vertical development has picked up pace in the past year. Between 2014 and 2017 (numbers available for this year not complete), the civic body granted 706 occupancy certificates to highrises, including ...

Don't approve RMP without court consent, HC to govt 16.10.2017 Deccan Herald - City
The High Court of Karnataka on Monday directed the state government not to approve the Bangalore Development Authoritys Revised Master Plan (RMP) 2031 without the consent of the court. According to the petitioner Namma Bengaluru Foundation (NBF) and Citizens Action Forum, the Bangalore Metropolitan Planning Committee (BMPC) is the constitutional body instituted for creating and implementing the master plans. However, the BDA is formulating the master plans and sending them to the state government for approval bypassing the approval of the BMPC. The divisional bench of acting chief justice H G Ramesh and P S Dinesh Kumar, while hearing a PIL filed by the NBF, directed the BDA to follow the process as mandated in the constitution. The BMPC has been constituted to be the nodal authority for all the development and planning in Bangalore metropolitan area. However, the BDA is undertaking the planning and development of areas and submitting it to the state government bypassing the BMPC. The state government ...

The state government has decided to implement its ambitious scheme to allot flats at Rs 1 lakh each on a Public Private Partnership (PPP) basis, allowing private players to utilise up to 40% of the land earmarked for the project for their own use. The government has identified 286 acres of land around Bengaluru city under the Rajiv Gandhi 1-lakh Multi-storey Bengaluru Housing Scheme, approved by the Cabinet recently.
