City must watch 'rising' pollution levels in winter, KSPCB warns 8.11.2017 deccanherald.com
Moderate weather and steady rainfall may have made Bengalurus air quality better than Delhi NCR, but the city could be headed for foggier days as dry winter sets in. Karnataka State Pollution Control Board has urged caution during the winter season, as the city is not entirely immuned from the muck. It says pollution in the city is caused by vehicular movement (42%), road dust (20%), construction and industrial activities (14%) and garbage incineration (3%). The fact that nearly 70 lakh vehicles ply in the congested city roads do not board well for the air quality. A KSPCB official who is part of a Supreme Court-appointed team to monitor pollution says Bengaluru has to handle vehicular emissions and road dust, though it may have geography and other factors like moderate minimum temperature in its favour. "Inversion effect is more in Bengaluru than in Delhi," the official ��part of the five-member pollution monitoring team the Supreme Court has set up- pointed out. "High humidity and low temperature ...

Garbage dumping goes unchecked in Vrishabhavathi 8.11.2017 Deccan Herald - City
The state government may be making big plans about rejuvenating the Vrishabhavathi Valley, but it has utterly failed to stop such a basic thing as dumping of garbage in what was once a river. Every day, auto-rickshaws and trucks are seen unloading garbage in the valley near the Sumanahalli flyover on West Bengalurus Magadi Road. Nearly a kilometre-long stretch along the valley is littered with garbage, raising an unbearable stench. The mounds of garbage are often set on fire, polluting the air. The situation has worsened after the winter set in. Garbage, especially plastic, flies around, sticking to helmets, cars, bags and clothes. Road users and local residents agree that the dumping of garbage and the resultant stench have increased manifold in the past month. Interestingly, the mounds of garbage are a stones throw from the recently launched Indira Canteen in Kottigepalya, ward number 73. Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) officials, however, appear to have turned a blind eye to the ...

Voices of discontent 2.11.2017 Deccan Herald - Friday
Protests have always been a way to draw the attention of the powers that be to pressing civic issues. The civic inefficiency that has delayed the work on Hennur Flyover had recently sparked off a spontaneous protest by citizens. With 300 people living in the vicinity coming together to express their outrage over the problems that they face because of the delayed work of the flyover, Metrolife went around the city to find out whether such protests can help bring in a change. While some people felt that public protests do well to speed up pending infrastructure work, others feel public outrages are only a momentary reaction and are not taken seriously by the officials. Nadia Zackaria, a resident of Hennur and one of the organisers of the recent protest, feels that people must make a noise to get pending infrastructure work done. "The authorities need a constant push from people, otherwise nothing gets done. The situation in and around Hennur gets worse when it rains because the construction debris dumped ...
