Bengaluru: Priority bus lane the answer to traffic woes? 23.10.2019
Poor planning, without application of common sense, may ensure that the pilot project fails - what are the pitfalls? Long suffering commuters in Bengaluru were delighted that the BBMP, BMTC and Bengaluru Police announced plans for Bus Lanes on arterial high traffic roads.  We were even more thrilled when they conducted a public consultation, a most unprecedented event here in the city. Various shades of opinions were expressed, by civic activists and experts. However, commendable though the gesture was, we see no sign that this feedback has been taken into consideration, for BMTC will go ahead with the proposed trial run on the Outer Ring Road, without any changes to its plan. The Bus Priority Lane proposal comes a few decades late and while we do think this initiative holds the solutions for many of the problems related to traffic congestion, the city has miles to go in terms of an integrated, holistic solution. The Citizens Agenda for Bengaluru, a citizen-led think tank, had crowd-sourced a ...

Ooty rains: Red alert on day 1 a non-starter 23.10.2019
Ooty: Though the red alert sounded for the Nilgiris for Tuesday by the weathermen triggered a sort of scare among the hill residents as the recent heavy rains and resultant disasters began to flash in their minds, the alarm proved to be futile, as the hills received only scanty rainfall on Tuesday.  Yet, the after-effects of the recent heavy rains in the preceding days could be seen in minor landslips and uprooting of trees at few places across the hills here on Tuesday. The closure of educational institutions, evacuating people in low-lying areas into the nearby flood shelters, posting of the disaster management teams in wanton points across the hills that began from Monday evening made one think that some danger was waiting for the hills.  But, fortunately the weather Gods proved the weathermen wrong as only low-intensity occasional rainfall with cloudy sky made up for the weather profile since Monday evening. While the uprooting of a tree and minor mud-slip at Gandhipuram area near Coonor ...

Tycoons in Telugu states fear IT-CBI-ED knock 23.10.2019
Hyderabad: Business honchos of the city, in particular those in the big infrastructure domain, have been rendered so stunned by the unexpected search and survey action on Megha Engineering and Infrastructure Limited (MEIL) by the income-tax (I-T) department, that they are all "cleaning-up" their books out of fear. Big corporations based in Hyderabad, particularly the five big corporates known to be close friends of the ruling dispensation in both Telangana state and Andhra Pradesh, have undertaken serious "mopping up" operations as part of their efforts to ensure there are no paper or digital trails leading officials to possible exposure of murky associations with political parties in case of a raid, which could cause trouble in future. The new strategy of either the Enforcement Directorate (ED) or the Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI) joining the I-T department at later stages, as was witnessed in quite a few cases of late, is making the biggies of the business community even ...
