The Supreme Court on Friday agreed for a detailed consideration of a plea by a Bengaluru-based NGO, questioning the National Green Tribunals (NGT) jurisdiction to decide validity of a law.

The NGO had sought declaration that Section 40 of the Biological Diversity Act, 2002 was illegal and unconstitutional.

After parks, playgrounds and bus stops, an Indira Canteen is now coming up on the inlet of Subramanyapura lake. Leo F. Saldanha, coordinator of Environment Support Group, said this is a gross violation of the high court orders to conserve lakes, National Green Tribunal direction on buffer zones and the Justice N K Patil report on lake conservation. He said the high court is still hearing a case pertaining to protection of Subramanyapura lake and in the meantime, the BBMP has encroached upon it. The lake has an area of 18 acres and the canteen, spreading across 1,000 sqft, is coming up on the Uttarahalli side. According to site engineer Baiju from Kef Infra, who is constructing the canteen, the building will be ready on Tuesday morning as scheduled.

Planners come up with ideas for use of heritage NGEF land 26.7.2017 deccanherald.com
Energised by the Karnataka High Court intervention in reactivating the 119-acre NGEF land at Baiyappanahalli, a collective momentum in now building up to push for a creative makeover of the heritage plot. A green public park is what most citizens want in the open space, but what about the over 10 lakh sqft of built-up area? One big idea is to retrofit and repurpose the buildings as exhibition spaces. Urban planners and heritage experts want the government to emulate what other big cities within and outside have done with their retrieved spaces. "The India Habitat Centre in Delhi is one such," points out heritage/travel writer-curator, Aliyeh Rizvi. "Salvage whatever is left to create a gallery of memories, about Bengalurus rich industrial heritage. It would help revisit the past in a positive way." Visualising the industrial sheds as a constantly evolving public exhibition space on science, technology, engineering ecology and sociology, Environment Support Group coordinator Leo Saldanha has a model to ...

Panel formed to revive city's dying waterbodies, says K J George 27.5.2017 Deccan Herald - City
Environment experts and government officials on Saturday deliberated on the state of Bellandur and Varthur lakes. The occasion was 'DH Spotlight' on 'Bringing Bellandur and Varthur Lakes Back to Life' at East Cultural Association in Indiranagar. Minister for Bengaluru Development and Town Planning K J George said Chief Minister Siddaramaiah had always been concerned about the lakes not just in Bengaluru but also across the state and had convened meetings at Vikasa Soudha. "A committee led by additional chief secretary in Urban Development Department Mahendra Jain was formed to revive Bellandur and Varthur lakes, which decided to carry out weeding and aeration. An implementation committee headed by the BDA commissioner has been constituted," said George. He said the two sewage treatment plants (STP) set up in Bellandur will be operational by July and four more will be installed in the coming months. "We cannot improve the lake overnight. It may take at least two to three years," said the minister. He ...

Just weeding Bellandur lake will not help: Saldanha 27.5.2017 Deccan Herald - City
Environment Support Group convener Leo Saldanha said the NGT was passing orders for quick-fix solutions as officials have failed to communicate the extent of the crisis in Bellandur lake. "Closing down industries alone will not save Bellandur lake. Solid waste is dumped in stormwater drains. How can we expect the sewage treatment plants to work when the water they handle has so much of solid waste?" he asked. Saldanha said clearing weeds does more harm than good. "Don't look at hyacinth as a disease. Hyacinth draws the excess nutrition in water. It basically treats sewage water. If you remove all weeds, then you are letting raw sewage into water," he said. "I appeal to the NGT to consider the Justice N K Patil report which suggested lining the 840 km of storm water drains with trees, bamboos and grass shrubs. These will absorb all the waste, allowing only clean water to pass," he said. He said every programme of the government agencies in saving lakes showed how incompetent officials have been in ...
